According to a statement released by the civic administration on Monday, the rennovation and widening of IJP Road will be completed in April of next year. This was mentioned by officials from the CDA and the National Logistic Cell during a briefing given to CDA Chairman Amer Ali Ahmed at the site office.
The famous IJP Road connects Rawalpindi and Islamabad, as well as G.T. Road and the Islamabad Expressway. The road is also used by a high number of heavy vehicles because it runs alongside Islamabad’s wholesale fruit and vegetable market.
Thousands of passenger buses, coaches, and other vehicles use the road because of the general bus stations at Pirwadahi. The route begins in Faizabad and finishes in Peshawar. Pavement distress was caused by an increase in traffic volume and the axle weight of slow-moving heavy trucks.
According to CDA authorities, 41 percent of the work has been performed thus far. The chairman instructed the CDA to clear paths along IJP Road in order to redirect traffic away from I.J. P. Road. In addition, a control room has been established to assist motorists in the event of an emergency.
According to the statement, the CDA chairman asked the project’s contractor to hasten work, namely from Pirwadahi Adda to Pirwadahi Mor, because residents have been suffering as a result of the continuing construction. He ordered the engineering division to finish the four-kilometer stretch of road by August. It connects Rawalpindi and Islamabad, as well as G.T. Road and the Islamabad Expressway.
The road is also used by a high number of heavy vehicles because it runs alongside Islamabad’s wholesale fruit and vegetable market. According to PC-I, the project is scheduled to be completed in April of next year, and CDA is putting up every effort to complete it before the deadline, with 41 percent of the work accomplished thus far.
