D-12 Still Awaiting Basic Facilities | Pakistan Real Estate | Scoop.it

Instead of completing previous residential projects, the Capital Development Authority (CDA) seems to be more inclined towards launching new residential sectors prior transferring of power to recently elected local governments.

A number of residential sectors including I-12, I-14, I-15 and D-12 launched decades ago are still waiting for attention of the civic body. The D-12 sector that was launched more than two decades ago, failed to attract the attention of the concerned authorities for the development of basic amenities for the residents.

The authority has the responsibility to develop, maintain, repair and resolve the problems of different sectors of the federal capital. It is also told that the development work was started back in 2001, the civic body has collected the development charges from the residents but the work was halted at later stage leaving most of the development work unaccomplished.

2nd Phase of Signal Free Corridor to Start in January

2nd Phase of Signal Free Corridor to Start in January | Pakistan Real Estate | Scoop.it

Abolition of signals at I-8 intersection and widening of the road from Zero Point to Faizabad have lessened the traffic woes of hundreds of motorists, who were otherwise habitual to face traffic jams at this very junction on regular basis.

Newly constructed road with two additional lanes offering a signal-free ride, is not just giving mental relaxation to the motorists but also reducing at least 7 to 10 minute drive of those who use this road on daily basis. Before construction of new road, long queues of vehicles were witnessed at I-8 intersection, especially during office time.

However, the situation is completely changed now. Seeing this, another intersection is also underway and work is being conducted at a faster pace. Comfortable journey before and after office is a blessing and with the construction of another intersection we are heading towards it.
