Islamabad: The Rawalpindi Development Authority (RDA) has applied to the Capital Development Authority (CDA) for a no-objection certificate (NOC) to connect the Leh Expressway to I.J. Principal Road and 10th Avenue.
The RDA is working on the Leh Expressway, while the CDA is working on the I.J.P. and 10th Avenue projects. Officials stated the RDA has recently requested that the CDA provide a NOC for the Leh Expressway to be connected to 10th Avenue.
A meeting was conducted at CDA headquarters a few days ago with CDA’s engineers and consultant Zeeruk International (PVT) and RDA’s consultant Nespak to evaluate the design of the planned overhead bridge that will connect the Leh Expressway and 10th Avenue.
Officials from the CDA said that during the meeting, the RDA’s consultant mentioned that the proposal had been produced in conjunction with the CDA’s consultant, and that the design had been streamlined to minimise land acquisition on the Rawalpindi side.
10th Avenue will be built in two parts, according to CDA authorities. In the first phase, a five-kilometer road will be built between I.J.P. Road/Katarian Bridge to Srinagar Highway near G-9’s end and G-10’s beginning. The project will take 21 months to complete once it is started. The road will be built from Srinagar Highway to Margalla Road in the second phase, according to officials.
