Islamabad: According to a source, the capital city is being built without taking into account the expansion of the Blue Region, resulting in a lack of room for business activities. The area, which is supposed to be built in line with a master plan created by the Greek firm Doxiadis Associates in 1960, is facing several difficulties in putting it into action.
The master plan says the city’s residential sectors and central business district (CBD), which is commonly known as the Blue Area, should grow side by side. But so far, the Blue Area could not see development beyond G-7 and F-7, though it is supposed to be expanded up to F-17 and I-17 sectors, which are the last sectors of the city.
Since its inception, the CDA fully developed the Blue Area along just two residential sectors – G-6, G-7 or F-6, F-7 up to Khyber Plaza.
Even in 2021, a large number of sectors that included C-13, C-14, C-16, H-13, H-14, D-13, F-13, D-14, D-15, D-16, E-15, and E-16 are yet to see any development work.
The sectors E-12, I-12, C-15, and I-15 have yet to be developed but the current management has been focusing on them.
When contacted, CDA Chairman Amer Ali Ahmed agreed that CDB and residential sectors had not been developed following the need of the city. “I do agree, unfortunately, CDA could not develop CDB with the growth of residential sectors,” he said.
