ISLAMABAD: Efforts are afoot to set up as many as 200 pre-fabricated toilets in the city to facilitate the citizens in responding the nature’s call at public places, the Capital Development Authority (CDA) Member Finance.
Talking to APP, he said the CDA’s directorates of Environment and Sanitation had already issued tenders for establishment of off-the-rack toilets at parks, picnic spots, jogging tracks, markets, highways and bus terminals.
