Islamabad: On Monday, the Capital Development Authority (CDA) decided to build new footpaths in addition to repairing all existing ones that were damaged.
According to CDA, 383 km of new footpaths will be built, and 847 km of existing ones will be repaired.
CDA chairman Mohammad Usman Younis presided over a meeting at the organization’s headquarters to discuss upgrading the city’s road system. He gave instructions to make public footpaths that are in disrepair functioning as quickly as feasible. Moreover, new footpaths that are required must be built in order to offer inhabitants the necessary amenities.
It was discussed in the meeting that footpaths will have a total length of 5,630 km as planned and will be located in a variety of places in Islamabad.
When giving instructions for the building of a new footpath, the chairman stated that not only would the development of these walkways encourage walking culture in the city, but it would also significantly reduce carbon footprints.
In addition, the press release stated that the CDA chairman issued directives and requested that departments colour-code speed and traffic signs on curb stones along various Islamabad motorways. According to him, curb stones should be colour coded using the two colours that are already available.
In a similar manner, if a road is longer, yellow and black should be utilised, and where a road is shorter, only yellow should be used.
The CDA claims that the color-coding of the curb stones will make it easier to gauge the speed limit on each route in Islamabad. The chairman gave the director traffic engineer instructions and requested that they prepare the full plan in accordance with global standards and resubmit it for approval. He further added that these actions will not only help citizens save money and time, but will also contribute to the reduction of environmental pollution.
