Islamabad - The Capital Development Authority (CDA) would soon initiate construction work on major roads in Sector I-12. This project would cost Rs358 million. The tender notice for construction of major roads in Sector I-12 has already been floated in the national press and contract for construction work would be awarded soon after opening of tender on January 15, 2015, said a press release issued here Sunday.

On this occasion, Member Administration and Estate Amer Ali Ahmed, Member Engineering Shahid Sohail, Director General Works and officers of concerned formations of the Authority were also present.

The chairman CDA said that the authority is paying special heed to the stalled sectors, which have been either completely neglected in the past or development work could not be completed. “Due to these reasons, the allottees of these sectors have been facing great difficulties,” he added. He said that plan for construction of major roads in Sector I-12 has been finalised and Rs358.00 million have been allocated.

The chairman directed the Engineering Wing to immediately start construction work on major roads in Sector I-12 after opening of tender.
