Islamabad: According to news reports published on September 21, the National Highways Authority (NHA) has requested that the Capital Development Authority (CDA) give priority to the repair and rebuilding of the Murree Road section that was damaged during the construction of the Bhara Kahu Bypass.
In response to the information given, the NHA called a meeting with CDA representatives after receiving several complaints from the general public about the shoddy and uneven condition of the road. Officers from both organizations who needed to attend the meeting were present, and it was presided over by the NHA Member Engineering and Coordination.
NHA representatives encouraged the CDA to start Murree Road repairs right away to lessen the inconvenience to the people during the meeting. The National Logistic Cell (NLC), with whom the department has already had negotiations in this regard, was informed by the CDA Director General and other officials that work will start soon.
It is significant that the CDA owns the Bhara Kahu bypass while the NHA is in charge of Murree Road. The portion of Murree Road underneath the flyover sustained substantial damage while the bypass was being built. The CDA has failed to start repairs, despite the bypass being finished.
