CDA chose to buy these road projects because the federal government decided to award contracts to government organizations without floating tenders. The Ministry of Defence’s Frontier Works Organisation (FWO) will be in charge of both projects. The National Logistics Cell (NLC) was the other entity in discussions to carry out the project.

The 7th Avenue Interchange in Aabpara, which will be erected at the intersection of 7th Avenue and the Srinagar Highway, would cost PKR 1.5 billion. Due to the sensitive nature of the project, CDA chose to work with FWO to expedite its completion. The interchange will assist in traffic congestion reduction.

It will be a cloverleaf junction with four right and left loops at the intersection of 7th Avenue, Garden Avenue, the Srinagar Highway, and Khayaban-i-Soharwardi, according to new information. An underpass will also be constructed to connect the two portions of Khayaban-i-Soharwardi.
