Proposals invited for stalled Margalla Road project in Islamabad

Islamabad: According to a recent piece of news, the Capital Development Authority (CDA) has issued a request for proposals for the construction of a 10-kilometre stretch of Margalla Road that has been delayed for years.

The CDA recently invited construction companies to submit bids for the Khayaban-i-Margalla from G.T. Road to D-12 balance operation, which is part of Package I.

The civic agency had won a contract worth Rs. 588 million for the building of an 8.5-kilometre stretch of road in 2012, but the project was never finished because the contractor left the site after finishing the earthwork and filed a lawsuit against the CDA. A century-old graveyard near Shah Allahditta collapsed on the road’s axis, causing it to be misaligned.

The CDA and the contractor recently reached an out-of-court settlement, clearing the way for a new tendering process. According to CDA officials, instead of the 8.5 km route, a 10.5 km road will be built, which will end at the D-12 endpoint. At a distance of around 1,000 feet from the cemetery, the route will be redirected to the north.
