Sept 8 – As Reported by The News, Chairman of the Capital Development Authority (CDA) Captain (r) Muhammad Usman has revealed that he would prioritize all of the ongoing CDA Projects in Islamabad for their timely completion.
By giving his interview to newsmen, he claimed the huge development activity is taking place at sites of all those projects for which the earlier administration had already set completion deadlines. He also figured out that previous authority had determined the deadline in a problematic way that was problematic to meet the time-frame for projects completion. CDA is working on the restoration and extension of IJP Road. Some other current CDA projects are Margalla Avenue and Expressway extension.
As the parliament has already approved Islamabad Food Authority, so CDA chairman aim to work on it too. CDA Chairman claimed that he had headed Punjab Food Authority before. So, he would like to take control of Islamabad food authority too.
The CDA chairman also explained that he does not prefer the procurement of cleaning machinery, as they would be a huge liability in future. Being a chief commissioner of Islamabad, he considers it as his moral obligation to keep the entire city clean.
He revealed that his administration would outsource all of the cleaning services to some private entities. It would then depend on those entities that how do they accomplish cleanliness tasks. He further said that nobody thought of parking and garbage dumping sites, while preparing Islamabad’s masterplan. As of now, CDA is working on five parking plazas, along with some other project. On the other hand, selecting dumping sites within adjoining districts would take next two decades.
The residents of Islamabad are hopeful that these CDA project would ease their travelling within the city. CDA chairman claims within next few month the residents would witness a huge transformation of the city.
