The Capital Development Authority (CDA) has confirmed its plans to complete the IJP Road's renovation under the first phase by the end of next month.
Under the first phase, CDA was responsible for improving the IJP Road from GT Road to Sector I-11, Mandi Morr.
The news was confirmed by a CDA official who is associated with the project.
"Our contractor, National Logistic Cell (NLC) keeping the progress of the work at a good pace and hopefully, the work on the first phase from G T Road to Mandi Morr will be completed by the end of August which is ahead of target," the source said.
It is worth mentioning that some hurdles were caused due to rainy weather but despite that, the project's first phase remains on track to be completed on time.
A senior CDA official also informed that the total cost of the project will also be revised due to an increase in fuel prices. He further claimed that with the completion of this phase, more than half of the project will be completed.
The implications of this project's completion will mean that load of traffic on the 9th will reduce significantly "as the commuters traveling towards Srinagar Highway and Margalla Road from Rawalpindi cantonment, Satellite Town and adjoining areas and sectors I-9, I-10 and I-11 would use 10th Avenue."
