The Lasbela Chamber of Commerce and Industry has demanded that work on the bridge and causeway over the Hub River start immediately.
According to Ismail Suttar, the Hub Bridge is the main route connecting Lasbela district in Sindh with Balochistan. The bridge collapsed due to the flooding and rain of the last monsoon season.
The NHA promised to build a causeway on the Hub River within 15 days after the rains stopped. September 15, 2022, was when the work was supposed to begin.
The lack of progress on the bridge and causeway is worrying the members of the LCCI. The commute was even more dreary on November 7, 2022, due to a few light raindrops. The people who use this road to travel to Hub and beyond have a difficult time because of the missing road link between the two provinces.
The meeting demanded that NHA start construction on the bridge and causeway immediately because the project has already been delayed and the winter rains have begun.
