Chairman of CDA Amer Ali Ahmed said,

The longstanding issue of traffic gridlocks at the junction of 7th Avenue is going to be resolved. The interchange will provide a big relief to citizens who on a daily basis face traffic congestion at this particular point. Not only this interchange, but we are also going to start some other projects that include an interchange at 10th Avenue and overhauling of I.J.P. Road.

The project is worth Rs. 1.5 billion and will be completed within a year.
