The project of Zulfiqarabad Oil Tankers Terminal was built by Karachi Metropolitan Corporation (KMC) to move oil terminals from inside the city and to ensure the smooth flow of traffic in Karachi.
It was aimed to billet up to 1,200 tankers outside the city, but on the other hand, only 200 to 300 tankers are found parked in its sites. The remaining tankers are being parked on different private lands or the National Highway.
The Zulfiqarabad Oil Tankers Terminal covers an area of 200 acres. From which, 150 acres have been allocated for the parking lot.
Whereas, the rest of the 50 acres have been allotted for the building of a mosque, canteen, rescue unit, and 128 toilets. It would also have spare parts and oil tanker repair shops.
A water supply of 54-inch diameter line has been laid while the project of 36-feet wide road construction is ongoing at the terminal.
In addition, the terminal also has a 150,000-gallon subversive water tank, a 60,000-gallon roof tank, and a park.
