Islamabad: The altered alignment of the planned Margalla Road section known as the Bhara Kahu bypass was authorised by city management on Wednesday.

According to sources, the Army’s Engineer-in-Chief (E&C) branch presented the planned alignment of the 7.4-kilometer Bhara Kahu bypass route, which is part of the Margalla Road project, to officials from the municipal agency at the Capital Development Authority (CDA) headquarters.

According to sources, an alignment was produced by the E&C branch, which was contracted by the CDA, but the municipal agency did not approve it since a section of it landed on private land near Kot Hatyal.

According to the sources, the CDA team, led by its chairman, Amer Ali Ahmed, and comprised of representatives of the engineering and planning directorates as well as other officials, was then given a presentation on the altered alignment.
