There are minor issues of shifting of services lines from different patches, which are no more hindrance to the work and the contractors shall work with full throttle to complete the project in the stipulated time frame.The meeting was informed that the RDA had appointed four engineers who would act as focal persons for different packages to coordinate with different departments and contractors. While speaking on the occasion, Abbasi stressed that there would be no compromise on the quality of work and material used in the project. He also asked the contractors to fully cooperate with the instruction of the district administration and police, keeping in view, the sensitivity of the prevailing law and order situation.

He further directed the contractors to install signboards of approved size for the facilitation of the public.They should also sprinkle water at the site regularly and cover the work area with sheets to avoid any untoward incident.
