CDA opens bidding for Faisal Avenue Underpass contract

Islamabad:      The Capital Development Authority (CDA) has opened financial bids for the contract of Faisal Avenue Underpass, which will connect sectors G-7 and G-8.

The Rs395 million project has so far received a bid from M/S Habib Construction Services, which is 2% less than the estimated amount. The contract will be awarded to the lowest bid after completing all procedural formalities, CDA spokesperson Syed Safdar Ali told the media.

He added that the capital’s master plan requires the construction of principle roads and underpasses to divide and connect the sectors respectively. The said project will address the longstanding issues of traffic flow.

CDA has already approved the development of two underpasses for connecting G-7 to G-8, and F-7 to F-8.

The said project will resolve traffic obstruction issues on Faisal Avenue near Zero Point and Pakistan Institute of Medical Sciences (PIMS), the CDA spokesperson said. He maintained that such a project hasn’t been constructed in the past ten years.
