According to the details, the landscaper is using heavy equipment and should be done by the end of this month. An official of the Capital Development Authority (CDA) (whose name was not disclosed) stated that the plan is to complete IJP Road by March 23, so work on the green belt must be completed before it.
Under the plan, the green belt from Pirwadhai Morr to the Faizabad area will be filled with thousands of new trees. The CDA said that the layout plan for IJP Road was made to help protect green cover while the road was being built.
It’s important to know that work has begun to make green belts in the city look better and grow. A total of PKR 21 million is being spent on landscaping, allied works, natural stone walls, and other materials to make green belts look nicer and protect them from encroachments.
