CDA to expedite construction work on Margalla Avenue
ISLAMABAD: The Capital Development Authority (CDA) will expedite construction work on Margalla Avenue and hurdles in this regard will be removed for early completion of the avenue.
According to CDA spokesperson, the workable plan would be chalked out so that it could be linked to some major avenues after passing through Sector D-12.
He told APP that the Chairman of Capital Development Authority (CDA), Syed Tahir Shahbaz, had directed the Engineering Wing to expedite the pace of construction work on the Avenue in line with international standards by utilising all available resources so that the commuters could enjoy the facility.
Chairman CDA said that Margalla Avenue would not only provide an easy access to the commuters from Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KPK) but also reduce the traffic burden on Kashmir Highway while entering the Federal Capital.
Margalla Avenue Project was initiated to facilitate the traffic from GT Road at the cost of Rs 588 million, member Engineering, Sanaullah Aman said.
He said that Margalla Avenue was 9 kilometers long with culverts, adding that the avenue would consist of 2 lanes of 12 feet width on each side and an overhead bridge would also be constructed on railway lane.
Chairman CDA issued directives to the concerned authority to accelerate the pace of development work on Margalla Avenue so that it could be completed within stipulated time.
