ISLAMABAD: Prime Minister Imran Khan has launched work on four mega projects in the Federal Capital.
The development projects launched by the prime minister included Rawal Dam Chowk Interchange, Korang Bridge, PWD Interchange and phase-1 of the development of Sector I-15.
Imran Khan, who unveiled the plaques of development projects, was briefed on their significance for the residents of Federal Capital.
The groundbreaking ceremony was also attended by the federal cabinet members, the Capital Development Authority chairman and senor officers.
The contract for the three road projects has been won by a joint venture of Maqbool Associates and Calsons.
The construction of Rawal Dam Interchange is crucial in the wake of growing traffic load on the Park Road and the Murree Road owing to increased population in the adjoining areas. It is a traffic management solution project that will be completed by the CDA through its own financial resources in 24 months.
The PWD Interchange and Korang Bridge are the two bottlenecks on the Islamabad Expressway, which catered to both local and heavy traffic between Islamabad, Lahore and Azad Kashmir. This project would also be executed by the CDA in 15 and seven months respectively. The project will be funded through the Public Sector Development Programme.
