Islamabad’s 7th Avenue Flyover Opened For Public

Capital Development Authority (CDA) has finally opened the 7th avenue flyover for public use. The update came from the official Twitter page of Islamabad Capital Police.

The original deadline for the project was October 2022. Although, later, the government decided to operationalize the roadway on August 14, 2022. Those plans were scrapped, however, due to the relentless rain.

The flyover bypasses the traffic signal previously installed at the location, facilitating traffic traveling to and from Rawalpindi, Bhara Kahu, Murree, and various areas within Islamabad.

National Logistic Cell (NLC) is spearheading this project after it became the lowest bidder. Likewise, Rawal Chowk Flyover project — which was awarded to Frontier Works Organisation (FWO) — has also been opened for traffic ahead of schedule.

IJP Road

Although the completion of these projects will alleviate traffic congestion on the expressway and other thoroughfares between the twin cities, the masses eagerly await the rehabilitation of the IJP road — another main thoroughfare under NLC’s list of ongoing projects.

It began in October 2021, with a completion deadline set for April 2023. In a review meeting held in May 2022, CDA learned that NLC had completed 41 percent of the work earlier than planned. While CDA has not disclosed its new completion timeline, the project is likely to conclude before the deadline.

  • After inauguration of 7th Avenue Flyover on Srinagar highway, CDA should seriously review the U Turns they have created on Srinagar highway near G9 G 10 and G 11. These U turn not only impedes smooth flow of traffic but also very hazardous for slow traffic joining high speed lanes just to take a U turn. Traffic engineering department must give a second thought and get flyovers re-approved again for safety and security of human lives.

  • Plz restart the work on 9th Avenue flyover on IJP road n complete the work which was started about One year ago

    • That’s not a 9th avenue flyover. That’s IJP road flyover and will get complete with IJP road completion.

  • Though 7th Avenue flyover is operational now But the portion of Srinagar Highway underneath the flyover is taking long time & there is a lot of traffic on this Srinagar Highway causing a great inconvenience
