The Hawkers of Saddar Bazaar
Saddar’s problems can only be solved as part of a larger city planning exercise that deals with the traffic and transport problems of the city in general and Saddar in particular. The hawkers and entertainers in Sad dar have to be seen as part of the transport issue and the transport issues as a part of them, without which their effective rehabilitation cannot take place.
The proposals presented are not sacrosanct and many alternatives to the traffic plan that has been proposed can be developed. However, if the concepts behind the proposals form the basis of a future revitalisation plan for Saddar, then Saddar can be converted into a multi-class entertainment and recreational area which the present day socially fragmented Karachi needs.
