CDA to auction debris on Kashmir Highway


ISLAMABAD: The Capital Development Authority (CDA) has decided to auction debris lying on right of way of Kashmir Highway, if their owners do not remove it.
CDA Chairman Amer Ali Ahmed on Wednesday issued instructions to Engineering and Estate Wing to issue an advertisement inviting parties to remove debris lying on Right of Way (ROW) of Kashmir Highway.
According to a spokesperson of CDA Syed Safdar Ali, in the advertisement the Estate Wing will ask the owners of demolished property to remove the debris.
“If they did not remove it, the debris will be auctioned so that the site is cleared,” he said.
The spokesperson said after removal of debris the civic agency will involve Metropolitan Corporation Islamabad (MCI) to plant trees on the sides of Kashmir highway.
Last year, the CDA had conducted a mega operation on right of way of Kashmir Highway adjacent to sector G-12, removing several commercial buildings including marquees.
CDA officials told Dawn that besides removing debris from Kashmir Highway, the high-ups should also pay heed to another important issue of throwing the debris on greenbelts near nullahs by private contractors in various areas of city, particularly in I-8 and H-8.
