ISLAMABAD - Residents in various sectors of Islamabad Sunday demanded of the Capital Development Authority (CDA) to build unpaved streets in their areas.
Residents in G-10 sector said there are still several areas where the CDA has not yet built the streets despite construction of house and the unpaved streets giving a look of re,ote villages. “We can not walk in our street whenever it is raining,” a resident of G-10/2 said, who lives in a street near the main Ibn-e-Sena road.
“The CDA inspectors routinely roaming in the area but they have never taken note of the troubles of the people,” he said. A student Abbas, also resident of G-10 said, said it is highly regrettable that people have built houses nearly two years ago in G-10-2 but some streets are still unpaved. “The residents have to walk in mud in rainy season,” Abbas said.
He said that the CDA inspectors in the area are aware of the situation but they have never informed their senior officials of the pathetic condition of unpaved streets in the developed sector. Residents said that the CDA can easily build the unpaved streets as small portions of several streets have not yet been carpeted.
The residents of the G-10 sector hoped that the incumbent CDA chairman, who lives in the sector, will undertake a visit to see himself the poor condition of the ‘kacha’ streets. School children also complained about their muddy streets when it is raining in Islamabad. Anas, a student at a private school, said that he goes to school with full of mud now a days as “have we have muddy street in rains’.
Residents recalled the CDA officials had conducted surveys for the construction but no action has been taken so far to build a short street.
