The CDA’s engineering wing would create the interchanges at Shaheen Chowk and E-11 Chowk, according to details. The CDA board of directors will discuss finalising the consultant firm during a planned meeting.
According to reports, Khayaban-e-Iqbal is one of Islamabad’s busiest roads due to the proximity of government offices and educational institutions to Shaheen Chowk. On the other side, the road is congested as a result of the construction of apartment buildings and wedding marquees in E-11.
