CDA to build 44-kilometre-long cycling track in Islamabad



ISLAMABAD: The Capital Development Authority (CDA) will build a 44-kilometre cycling track along four major roads in the capital.

CDA Chairman Nadeem Hassan Asif announced this during a meeting with a Chinese delegation, held at the CDA Headquarters on Wednesday.

He said the authority wanted to promote a culture of healthy activities and lessen the traffic burden on the roads. The cycling tracks would make the capital more environment-friendly and beautiful, he added.

The Chinese delegation also discussed projects regarding electrification of 240 acres of the Fatima Jinnah (F9) Park and the Parliament House through solar panels.

CDA Environment Member Ahsan Ali Mangi briefed the participants on the project. He apprised the meeting that the cycling track would be constructed along four major avenues namely Faisal Avenue, Margalla Avenue, Garden Avenue and Attaturk Avenue. The required land was available and it was envisaged in the master plan, so there was no issue of land acquisition, he added.

He said the track would be constructed in two loops.

The meeting was informed that the Chinese government, through grant assistance, would help complete the project.

The head of the Chinese delegation thanked the CDA chairman and the government of Pakistan for posing confidence in the Chinese government.

Asif thanked the delegates for their cooperation and interest in the projects. He said the CDA would cooperate with the Chinese government in the projects. The CDA was committed to providing healthy facilities to the citizens of Islamabad, he added
