Islamabad: On Tuesday i.e. today, the Development Working Party (DWP) of the Capital Development Authority (CDA) will convene to discuss the PC-Is of two projects: the expansion and renovation of Park Road and the Bhara Kahu bypass project.
According to a representative of the civic organisation, the meeting will be presided over by retired Capt. Mohammad Usman, the CDA Chairman, and include officers and representatives from the interior and planning commission ministries.
A PC-I worth Rs2 billion for the renovation and enlargement of Park Road from Rawal Chowk to Tramari Chowk will be discussed at the meeting. Due to the mushrooming growth of homes and structures over the past two decades, this 7.4km route has experienced traffic congestion.
According to CDA authorities, the PC-I would add one more lane on each side and repair work would be done on the current lanes.
The other project is Bhara Kahu bypass, which was the federal government’s priority project. Last month, Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif had directed the CDA to start this project as soon as possible and complete it within four months.
The 5km road, including the one km flyover, will start from Murree Road near Quaid-i-Azam University stop and end on Murree Road again, close to Jugi Stop. It will then have a 1km-long flyover, which will end outside of Bhara Kahu bazaar boundary (towards Murree).
After receiving directions from the prime minister, the CDA had already gotten the initial lane alignment and design conducted by the Frontier Work Organisation (FWO). This project will have two interchanges and two underpasses.
