Islamabad: The Capital Development Authority (CDA) is hopeful that work on the final stretch of Margalla Road, dubbed the Bhara Kahu bypass, will begin next month.

“Now, before the formal commencement of the work, thorough engineering of the project will be completed when the alignment has been approved. “We want to start this project in November and finish it in a year,” stated a CDA senior executive.

He added that a meeting on the project has been arranged on Monday, and that the CDA intends to begin construction at Satra Meel, where it will end.

The army’s engineering-in-chief section, which had been engaged by the CDA to finalise the road alignment, finished the job last month. According to sources, the Bhara Kahu bypass was planned to start at Quaid-i-Azam University and end just short of Satra Meel in the first draught alignment.

However, CDA management requested that the alignment be revised to prevent land acquisition and built-up property issues, and that the entire road cross state territory.

According to reports, the E&C has finalised a revised 7.8-kilometer route that will begin near the Pakistan Institute of Development Economic (PIDE) building and end short of Satra Meel after crossing state land. The CDA management got the alignment changed to avoid land acquisition as in the first alignment a portion of private land also fell in the alignment.
