Islamabad - Chairman Capital Development Authority, Maroof Afzal has directed the engineering wing of the CDA to initiate development work of dualisation of service roads, east and west, of sector E-11 immediately for providing an easy access to sector D-12 and Second Carriageway from the roundabout service road (west) of sector G-10 to Khaybaan-e-Iqbal.

According to the CDA officials, it is not only utilising all available resources for the provision of modern infrastructure and promotion of development activities but is also ensuring availability of funds for early completion of these public welfare projects.

Chairman CDA Maroof Afzal gave these instructions while chairing a meeting held at the CDA headquarters. The meeting was attended by the Member Administration Amer Ali Ahmed, member engineering and other senior officers of the authority.

On this occasion, the chairman CDA was apprised that tenders for dualisation of service roads, east and west, of sector E-11 for providing an easy access to sector D-12 and Second Carriageway from the roundabout service road (west) of sector G-10 to Khaybaan-e-Iqbal has been opened while development work on both of the project will be awarded soon after the finalisation of codal formalities. The chairman CDA was further informed that construction of dualised service roads will be completed with the cost of Rs 240 million while Second Carriageway from the roundabout service road (west) of sector G-10 to Khaybaan-e-Iqbal will cost Rs 320 million.

Maroof directed the concerned formations to complete these projects in line with international standards as these projects will not only provide easy access to the sectors on western side of the city but would help maintain traffic flow in the city.

Furthermore, effective monitoring and supervision to ensure maximum survival of the new planted plants and concentrated efforts for conservation of natural environment particularly that of Margalla Hills national Park would be carried out to further enhance the beauty of Islamabad.

Special arrangements have been made to promote and preserve rich fauna and flora in the capital city. Chairman CDA expressed these views in his message on the eve of International Day of Forests, observed on March 21, 2016.
