The Development Party of the Capital Development Authority also approved a 193 million project to construct an underpass on the intersection of Atta; Turk Avenue, G5 and G6. The agency will also widen Jinnah Avenue and Ayub Chowk at the cost of 157 million. When asked about the timely completion of the projects the CDA officer claimed that he is determined to complete all the projects in six months. He said that the buses will initially be launched on three routes but later three more routes would be added.
