A treatment system on the Nala would be formed at the Shaheed Benazir Park which would be processing the sewage water before expelling into the Nala onward. The water flowing from the Boat Basin to the sea would be neat and clean and free of any kind of bad smell or odour.

According to the scheme, boats would be sailing into the Nahr-e-Khayam within 1 kilometre from Boat Basin to Clifton Road for visitors and there would be a park, benches, coffee, walking track, other eateries and tea in closer proximity to the Nala.

The chief minister has given the task to Architect—Shahid Abdullah for getting assistance from the private sector for developing the area. In the next phase, other such portions of Nala would be formed in the city at other localities.
