the prime minister reached Rawal Dam Chowk and inspected work on the under-construction interchange which was launched in July 2020. After a briefing, it was decided that the contract would be awarded to the Frontier Works Organisation (FWO) with a direction to start the construction within 72 hours.

The FWO will complete the project without demanding any escalation in the cost in the contract.

The prime minister was briefed by Capital Development Authority (CDA)’s Member Engineering Munawar Shah.

He was informed that the project was delayed as the contractor was around 14pc behind schedule, adding that the project would be handed over to the FWO in 15 days.

The prime minister directed the FWO to start the construction work within 72 hours and complete it by September. It was also decided that the FWO would complete the project at the same amount - Rs1.1 billion - on which it was awarded to the former contractor.

The project includes multiple slip roads and one underpass as well as an overhead bridge and a separate underpass connecting Margalla Town. The project was inaugurated in July 2020.

The project is being constructed at the junction of Murree Road, Club Road and Park Road.

According to CDA officials, once completed the project will provide relief to commuters as traffic congestion on this portion of Murree Road has become a routine.

During the last few years, due to increasing population in adjoining areas of Park Road, traffic congestion has become a problem.

Old villages such as Lakhwal, Kurri, Chatta Bakhtawar, Shahzad Town, Rawal Town and Alipur Farash also saw increase in population that resulted into traffic load on Park Road.
