ISLAMABAD: The Capital Development Authority (CDA) has directed the Engineering Wing to re-examine the estimated cost and design submitted for the rehabilitation of IJP Road.

The directive was issued by CDA Chairman Amer Ali Ahmed in a meeting held, to avoid any post-contractual issues.

The development work on road rehabilitation project worth Rs6 billion has been scheduled to initiate in January. Once started, the project approved by the CDA-Development Working Party will be completed in 18 months.

The Engineering Wing has been directed to review the cost estimation and the design plan of the project until the pre-qualification process of the construction firms is completed.

The mega-project is aimed to uplift the IJP Road, to accommodate the daily commuters and avert the traffic congestion.

In addition to the rehabilitation of the dual carriageway, the respective authority will construct two additional rigid lanes and three flyovers on the 9th, 10th and 11th avenues, under this initiative.

The construction work in this mega-project was finalized after approving a feasibility study submitted by a consultant hired by the authority.
