(Karachi) Prime Minister Imran Khan has inaugurated four development projects in Islamabad that would help ease traffic woes and address grievances of the citizens, media reported on Thursday.
PM Imran has directed Capital Development Authority (CDA) for early completion of Rawal Dam Interchange, Korang Bridge and PWD Underpass on Islamabad Expressway.
After construction of the PWD underpass, the Express Highway will become signal free. The extension of Rawal Dam Interchange, popular as Rawal Chowk, was mandatory now as the traffic congestion on Park and Murree Roads have increased with the rise in the population of twin cities of Islamabad and Rawalpindi.
Earlier, as part of the government's effort to protect the nature, Prime Minister Imran Khan announced the establishment of 15 national parks in all the federating units.
Launching the ‘Protected Area Initiative’ in Islamabad, the PM said this initiative will create employment opportunities for people across all provinces. He further said not only this will provide environmental benefits, but will also contribute to the country's economy in this time of pandemic.
