CDA suffers setbacks in parking plazas project
CDA suffers setbacks in parking plazas project

ISLAMABAD: The Capital Development Authority (CDA) has not started work on its plan to construct multi-storey parking plazas in Islamabad to overcome the parking problem. Like other cities, the traffic problem is increasing in the capital.
With the increasing population, the commercial activity has increased, because of which lack of parking space and traffic jams have become a common occurrence. The shortage of parking space in Blue Area and other major markets of the city including Aabpara, Super Market, Jinnah Super and Karachi Company is not only aggravating traffic problems but also increasing car-lifting incidents in the capital. Constructing proper car parking plazas can decrease traffic problems and the number of car thefts in the city. Due to the shortage of parking space in Blue Area, people park their vehicles away from their offices, which wastes their time. Most people park their vehicles on roadsides that often causes traffic jams. A CDA official said the authority’s planning wing had started work on the plan to construct parking plazas but it had not yet been finalised. According to the plan, the authority would construct seven parking plazas in different phases, he said.
He said in the first phase, the civic body would construct three parking plazas in different parts of Blue Area. The sites proposed by the CDA for the plazas included one near the Muslim Commercial Bank, another near the Savour Food and the third near a mosque in the Blue Area
