Recently, the government directed the Capital Development Authority (CDA) to launch the F-13 residential sector for the low-income group of Islamabad.
Following this, the Interior Minister Sheikh Rasheed Ahmed visited the apex civic authority on Wednesday. During the visit, he addressed the city managers and gave several directives regarding the launch of the F-13 sector, the construction of the 7th Avenue interchange, the reconstruction of IJP road, and the regularization of the contractual CDA employees.
The minister stated:
The new sector will inaugurate on the 23rd of March, and it will have flats for the people from the labor class.
In a press briefing Sheikh Rasheed said:
The 7th Avenue interchange will be built on the junction of the avenue and Srinagar Highway near Aabpara. The civic body will restore 240 parks in Islamabad within two months. People living in the F-6 and F-7 slums will be shifted to the I-9 and Farash Town flats.
He further directed the CDA to launch a sector for journalists and to accommodate those who did not get plots in the past. Talking about other initiatives, Sheikh Rasheed stated:
The Eagle Squad will launch 100 motorbikes as part of the measures to fight crime in the federal capital.
Following Sheikh Rasheed’s directives, the CDA Chairman, Amer Ali Ahmed, and other members of the board briefed the Minister about the overall performance of the body.
The authorities apprised the Minister about the PC-I of the 7th Avenue interchange project worth Rs. 2 billion, the reconstruction and expansion of the IJP Road project worth Rs. 6 billion, and the proposed 10th Avenue project.
