ISLAMABAD: Capital Development Authority (CDA) is all set to start road rehabilitation work in sector D-12.

In this connection, formal approval has been accorded while funds for commencement of rehabilitation work have also been allocated.

The rehabilitation work will start from Monday or Tuesday depending upon weather conditions. This has been stated by the spokesman on Sunday. He further said that Sector D-12 is among the sectors where large numbers of allottees are carrying out construction on their plots. Due to construction activities and ignorance in the past the roads of this sector were in dilapidated state. Furthermore, during the clean green Pakistan campaign Finance Minister Asad Umar visited the area and observed that pending works must be expedited.

Consequently the matter has been taken up and it is decided to launch rehabilitation work on immediate basis. While carrying out rehabilitation work roads and streets of the sector would be re-carpeted, lane marking would be carried out in addition to the fixation of curb stones and cat eyes. Moreover, Sector Development Directorate has also been directed to complete leftover development work.

Furthermore, the concerned formations of the authority have also been directed to provide missing facilities so that residents of the sector could be further facilitated.

In the meanwhile, authority has also decided to commence work on construction of various pedestrian crossings in the city.

In this connection, areas are being identified where general public is facing difficulties in crossing the roads.

In this context, authority has decided to construct a pedestrian crossing at Kashmir Highway near Bokra Village for which quotations have been sought from Heavy Mechanical Complex (HMC) Taxila and work on the pedestrian bridge will commence in a short period.
