ISLAMABAD: Federal Minister for Finance and Revenue Dr Abdul Hafeez Shaikh on Friday constituted a sub-committee to finalise the arrangements between Capital Development Authority (CDA) and the Punjab government for running buses on the newly constructed metro-bus corridor from Peshawar Mor (G-9) to New Islamabad International Airport.

A meeting to discuss and finalise modalities regarding functionalizing the metro-bus corridor presided over by Hafeez Shaikh decided to constitute a sub-committee under the chairmanship of deputy chairman Planning Commission.

Earlier, the CDA chairman said there was a great need to operationalize the Metro-bus corridor from Peshawar Morr (G-9) to New Islamabad International Airport immediately for providing a comfortable, safe and secure transportation facility to the commuters in federal capital.

He added that the federal cabinet had already approved formation of Capital Mass Transit Authority (CMTA) to run the metro bus service from Peshawar Morr (G-9) to New Islamabad International Airport.

However, the CDA required support from Punjab Mass Transit Authority in the form of buses and technical know-how to make the corridor operational immediately.

Advisor to the PM on Institutional Reforms and Austerity Dr Ishrat Hussain, CDA chairman Aamir Ali Ahmed, Additional Secretary M/o Interior Iftikhar Ali Shallwani, deputy chairman Planning Commission Muhammad Jehanzeb Khan, Punjab Mass Transit Authority MD Mirza Naseer Inayat, Member National Highway Authority Arbab Ali, Secretary Finance Kamran Ali Afzal and other senior officers also attended the meeting. The Punjab chief secretary joined the meeting through a video link.
