Islamabad: Special Assistant to Prime Minister (SAPM) on Capital Development Authority (CDA) Affairs Ali Nawaz Awan inaugurated the G-7/G-8 Underpass at Faisal Avenue on Friday (Oct 2), according to a news source published on October 2.
The G-7/G-8 Underpass at Faisal Avenue has been constructed at a cost of PKR 395 million. While the project had been slated to be completed in May, construction work had to be halted due to the coronavirus outbreak and its resulting countrywide lockdown.
The SAPM stated that this major road project had been constructed after a decade-long gap, and that now several projects — including the construction of 10th Avenue and the development of an interchange at the junction of Srinagar Avenue near Abapara and 7th Avenue — would soon be completed. He further revealed that the contract for the development of the Rawal Dam Interchange had already been awarded, and that work on the project would be launched in November.
As per Islamabad’s master plan, the CDA is expected to develop major avenues between the city’s residential sectors in order to link them through underpasses.
