The dilapidation of Roads in the capital exist. It is due to non-maintenance and gained attention from the senior management
CDA plans to start road carpeting projects in Islamabad. The carpeting of roads is to the tune of Rs. 220 million and it is starting soon. The project’s funding is coming from the Federal Government. The execution agency of this project will be the Capital Development Authority. Particular attention will be on carpeting the streets. The carrying out of carpeting work will be across Islamabad in all sectors. They are issuing the invitation of tenders in this respect. The MPO will also be engaged for this purpose.
Overall, roads and streets in Islamabad were waiting for repair and maintenance including carpeting for long time. There has been serious neglect with regards to road maintenance in the past few years. Common people were also suffering because of dilapidated condition of roads and streets. The Incumbent CDA administration, which is sensitive to issues of common men in the street, will now carpet roads and streets in Islamabad.
Moreover, the Capital Development Authority is also working on a comprehensive strategy to uplift infrastructure in Islamabad.
The official website of CDA is here: Capital Development Authority
The tenders for road are available here.
Capital Development Authority procures all its goods and services in accordance with PPRA Procurement Policy, all PPRA codes of practice and guidelines, and the Authority’s Procurement Policy.
This is the first significant development activity in Islamabad in the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf led current government. Previously, a pause could be seen on a number of development activities. This pause was due to the economic situation in the country where few funds were available for any development work. Let’s hope the momentum continues as CDA plans to start road carpeting projects in Islamabad.
