Islamabad: The Capital Development Authority (CDA) has initiated the hiring process for a contractor to conduct the developmental work on the Korang Bridge expansion (located on the Islamabad Expressway) — with the project aimed at facilitating the traffic flow in the area.
The CDA has invited single-stage, two-envelope bids from the construction firms (registered with the Pakistan Engineering Council) for the project this week as the PC- I of the project has already been approved.
Previously, the government had announced its decision to fund the construction work of the Korang Bridge and PWD Underpass through its Public Sector Development Program (PSDP) 2020-21. The project is aimed at facilitating the commuters who suffer from the challenges caused by traffic congestion on a daily basis.
The planning commission, in its recently held meeting, had decided that the development work would be executed in two phases — with the CDA expected to construct the PWD Underpass and expand the Korang Bridge on Islamabad Expressway (from Koran to GT Road) in the first phase.
