The CDA is working hard to finish the Bhara Kahu Bypass on time

News sources said on August 29 that the Capital Development Authority (CDA) is doing everything it can to finish the Bhara Kahu Bypass project as soon as possible. Capt. (ret.)

The chairman met with Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif, who told the CDA administration to do everything they can to finish the project in the next four months. The chairman told the prime minister that the government had started a survey of the route’s topography, which would be done in the next few days. After the survey is done, the CDA will finish the engineering design for the bypass before finalising Project Concept-I. (PC-I).

A spokesperson for the CDA told the media that PM Shehbaz Sharif is in charge of the project himself. The authority has already teamed up with the Frontier Work Organisation (FWO), and construction is set to start in the second week of September.

It’s important to know that the PKR 5 billion project is one of the city’s most important projects to improve road infrastructure. According to its PC-I, the bypass would be five kilometres long, with a one-kilometer-long elevated road (flyover) and two interchanges, one at the beginning and one at the end.

The route will start at the Quaid-i-Azam University stop on Murree Road, go along Kayani Road, and end near the Jugi stop on Murree Road. After that, it will have a flyover that is one kilometre long and ends at the end of Bhara Kahu.

Officials from the CDA said that the project will be done in two parts. The first phase goes from GT Road Sangjani to D-12, and the second phase is the Bhara Kahu bypass. Officials from the CDA say that 70 percent of the work on the first phase of the project is done and that it is moving along well. Work on the Bhara Kahu bypass is going to start soon, it was said. The CDA engineering wing said that the Army’s E&C branch had already finished the engineering design and alignment of the bypass. The Frontier Works Organisation is reviewing the draught of PC-1, which the city managers are waiting for (FWO).

When the CDA gets the PC-1 from the FWO, it will send it to the Development Working Party for final approval (DWP). As soon as the PC-1 is approved, work will begin on building the bypass. The Pakistan Environment Protection Agency has received the draught report on the Environment Impact Assessment (EIA) (EPA). The 7.8-kilometer bypass was supposedly built so that people going to Galyat, Kashmir, and Murree could take a different route. The proposed bypass will start in the Malpur area and end near Satra Meel on Murree Road, according to the details.
