Islamabad - Completion of ongoing development projects and launching of new mega public welfare projects is among the top priories of Capital Development Authority (CDA) and Metropolitan Corporation Islamabad (MCI).

In future those projects would be preferred which would not only help enhance development activities in the city but directly facilitate its residents. These views were expressed by Mayor of Islamabad and Chairman CDA, Sheikh Anser Aziz while inspecting the ongoing development work on the service roads of Sector E-11. On this occasion, local representatives, senior officers of the concerned formations of CDA and MCI were also present.

The Mayor said that MCI and CDA would jointly work for the future development and beautification of the city so that Islamabad could be made most beautiful and modern metropolis of the world. He said in accordance with the vision of Prime Minister of Pakistan Mian Muhammad Nawaz Sharif, the elected representatives will play their effective role in future development of the city and making Islamabad a model city.

The Mayor was apprised that development work in Sector D-12 is in final stages, while construction work on dualisation of both service roads (East and North) in Sector E-11 is in progress. He was informed that construction work on both the service roads leading to Sector D-12 was initiated four months ago and the estimated cost of roads was Rs249 million but construction work would be completed at the cost of Rs178 million as the tender was awarded 28 per cent less than the NIT cost.

The Mayor directed Member Engineering to complete the project within due time with no compromise on quality and standard of the work. He also directed Environment Wing for plantation of trees and colourful flowers on both sides of the service roads and carryout landscaping of median strips between roads.
