Highways Department

Sindh Highways Department is responsible for construction and maintenance of the entire provincial roads network. At the time of independence Sindh inherited only about 1039 KMS of blacktopped roads, mostly 9 ft. to 12 ft. in width. The only major road at that time was the National Highway running from Karachi to Reti, bordering on Punjab having length of 664 kms. The roads then used to be constructed on the basis of stage construction.Today the total road network in Sindh including federal roads, though more than 55000 KMS in length, still seems too lean when compared with the minimum requirement of 1KM/ i.e; 140,900 KMS.

Buildings Department, headed by Chief Engineer (Building) is responsible for construction and maintenance of buildings including allied services for all the Departments of Sindh Government. Similarly the work plan for maintenance of buildings is prepared in consultation with the Administrative Department/user and items of work executed and paid after getting a certificate from them.
