Islamabad: The Capital Development Authority (CDA) declared its dedication to the execution of environmentally sustainable projects that will bring about significant changes and improve the overall ecological condition of the federal capital.
An extensive network of bicycle lanes throughout the city, an automated system for parking cars, the implementation of electric vehicles, and tree-planting campaigns are among the innovative endeavors that have contributed to the development of an environmentally sustainable era of electronic mobility in Islamabad.
The ambitious plans were detailed by CDA spokesperson Nauman Khalid in an interview with a private news channel. “To mitigate carbon emissions and address environmental concerns, we are implementing cycling and electric bus initiatives in the nation’s capital,” he said.
An extensive fleet exceeding 200 electric buses is slated to be installed in Islamabad, providing locals with an environmentally sustainable means of transportation that mitigates traffic congestion and enhances route connectivity; thus, it will contribute to the overall improvement of the climate.
