Islamabad: The board of the Capital Development Authority (CDA) has directed the engineering wing to take steps to resolve concerns relating to the construction of a ladies club in G-10, which has been on hold for the past 11 years.
The building on two acres was completed in 2010, but no further steps have been taken to complete the project since then. According to sources, the engineering wing brought the problem before the CDA board a few days ago, requesting permission to float new tenders to finish the job.
According to the sources, the board members believed the engineering wing was handling the situation on its own because the board was not supposed to make such a decision. The board, on the other hand, directed the engineering wing to take initiatives such as revising PC-I and resolving the issue so that work could begin sooner.
Officials from the CDA stated the project had been delayed inordinately and that over Rs300 million had already been spent on it.
Two wedding halls, a mini-cinema, a swimming pool, coffee shops, restaurants, a library, squash and tennis courts, and a gym were all part of the club’s design. The CDA was told to complete the project by the Public Accounts Committee while hearing an audit para a few months ago, according to authorities. It’s one of the CDA’s long-running, contentious, and poorly-planned initiatives.
