ISLAMABAD: The Capital Development Authority (CDA) teams successfully installed the 50th of 156 girders at the Bhara Kahu project, which is a significant development. The fact that Pakistan Television's Twitter account formally announced this development suggests that the project's work is moving quite quickly and is almost finished. The Bhara Kahu bypass project has encountered numerous difficulties, including fallen pillars and other disasters that worried the locals. Since the project's commencement, these accidents have drawn attention and debate as safety concerns have taken precedence.
In order to allay the worries and guarantee the project's safety and completion, the authorities took additional safeguards. They even sacrificed a goat in a ritual in an unorthodox attempt to seek divine assistance for the project's execution to go smoothly and safely. These safety measures were put in place in reaction to earlier errors and accidents that disrupted society and raised public anxiety
Furthermore, the CDA's progress on the Bhara Kahu project is accelerating with the installation of the 50th girder. Notably, the authorities are committed to overcoming the difficulties encountered in the past and providing citizens with a safe and dependable infrastructure.
I think it's relevant to mention here that the Bhara Kahu bypass project was started on October 1, 2022, and it was supposed to be completed within four months under the direction of PM Shahbaz Sharif. The experts, however, believed the timeline mentioned in the PC-I was not rational for such a vast project. Later the project was announced to be completed before March 23, 2023, but the two back-to-back incidents on the site which include the killing of two laborers following the collapse of a transom and the collapse of five girders the project slowed down.
