Islamabad: According to media sources, the Pakistan Environmental Protection Agency (Pak-EPA) instructed the Capital Development Authority (CDA) on Monday to ensure that a suitable environmental management plan (EMP) be applied during the restoration and widening of IJP Road.
As the agency has acquired the IJP Road project, CDA officials were expected to produce a Traffic Diversion Plan, a baseline data revived report, and the site of the camp office, according to Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) Monitoring Director Ahsan Rafi Kiani. He went on to explain that in order for the EIA Report to be authorised, the information gathered must be shared.
The director also directed CDA personnel to begin the necessary preparations to remove 1,265 trees from the project site. Mr. Kiani went on to say that it’s essential to look into the survival rate of plants transplanted in Islamabad prior before transplanting them. In addition, the CDA will plant 8,000 trees along the route.
In addition, two bridges and flyovers will be built, starting in Faizabad and ending at N-5. The EIA Monitoring Director Ahsan Rafi Kiani said that two camp office locations are being considered, one near Pirwadhai and the other at 9th Avenue.
