Chairman Noor ul Amin Mengal of the Capital Development Authority (CDA) recently shared ground-breaking intentions to transform Islamabad in a tweet from his official Twitter account. In addition to a number of other initiatives, the announcement highlighted the long-overdue removal of solid waste from the Islamabad Motorway (IJP), the installation of service lanes on both sides of the IJP, the construction of eight pedestrian bridges, and the impending start of an electric bus service.
The CDA's dedication to improving the cleanliness and overall appeal of the capital city is shown in the clearance of solid garbage along the IJP, a duty that was ignored for many years. Chairman Mengal hopes to address the ongoing problem of waste accumulation with this initiative, making the environment healthier and more aesthetically pleasing for both visitors and residents of the twin cities. Additionally, the CDA's intention to add service lanes on both sides of the IJP shows that it is taking proactive measures to enhance traffic management and guarantee a smoother flow of traffic. This new construction will improve the commute for drivers using the busy motorway and help relieve congestion. In order to enhance pedestrian convenience and safety, the CDA will also build eight pedestrian bridges over crucial locations along the IJP.
These bridges will improve the city's overall urban infrastructure while facilitating pedestrian mobility and providing a quick and safe way to traverse the busy thoroughfare. Chairman Mengal also announced the impending introduction of an electric bus service, due to begin operations by June, in a significant step towards sustainable transportation.
