Islamabad: The Capital Development Authority (CDA) has announced its decision to resume the construction of a road link between Grand Trunk (GT) Road and Sector D, according to a news report published on January 27.
The project was delayed for seven years owing to disputes between the authority and the contractor. Now, the CDA management intends to award a new contract for the road project through competitive processing.
According to reports, the authority is now finalising a new estimate and hopes to award the contract during the next month. It was also revealed that the development of the four sectors C-13, C-14, C-15 and C-16 depends on this project.
The PKR 588 million project, which includes the construction of an 8.5-kilometre-long strip for Margalla Road, was launched in 2012.
