CDA’s bus stand project still lingers on



ISLAMABAD: The Islamabad Transporters Association has expressed serious concern over the non-shifting of the bus terminals to the allocated place in Sector I11/4. The CDA approved a project in 2011 for the construction of bus stands in Sector I11/4 and auctioning them for shifting of bus terminals working in various localities of the capital, including Faizabad, Karachi Company, and Pir Wadhai. About 164 kanals of land was allocated for this purpose. While talking to the media personnel, the Islamabad Transporters and Passengers Welfare Association president has said that they had been sending reminders to the civic agency for shifting of the bus stands. He said that in 2002, the CDA and the Islamabad Traffic Authority (ITA) submitted a compliance letter in the High Court for resolving the issue of the bus stands with consultation of the transporters within two months. He said that in 2003, the CDA’s board approved a plan for temporarily bus stand in Sector I11/4. According to the plan, the transporters had to bear the expenditures of the construction while the Directorate of Municipal Administration (DMA) was responsible for ensuring basic facilities, including drainage system, water supply, security, etc. The association’s president urged the authority to resolve the issue while protecting their business, as a number of people were associated with this. He said that only three bus stands in the capital have NOCs.
