ISLAMABAD:

The Capital Development Authority (CDA) in its drive to 'Light Up Islamabad' has started decorating overhead bridges of the 27-km long expressway in the traditional truck art, which has earned global acclamation and introduced the country's unique cultural identity to the world.

The authority's dual-purpose project is aimed at keeping the elusive history associated with the trucks alive, besides giving a distinctive look to the city's beauty, CDA Member Finance Rana Shakeel said on Sunday.

The CDA, in collaboration with the private sector, has so far decorated two of the total six overhead bridges of the Islamabad Highway with truck art.
