IJP Road Will be Ready for Traffic Next Month: CDA Chairman

The long-awaited renovated IJP Road will be ready for public use on Pakistan Day (March 23), according to Capital Development Authority (CDA) Chairman Noor-ul-Amin Mengal.

This update comes directly from the CDA chairman’s official Twitter account. The project began in October 2021, with the initial date of completion being April 2023. It was awarded to the National Logistics Cell (NLC) after it came in as the lowest bidder.

In January, former CDA chairman Capt. (Retired) Usman Younis shared the progress of the IJP Road renovation project. According to him, most of the work on the project was complete, except for the Agha Shahi (9th) Avenue flyover.

Younis highlighted the following progress made on the IJP Road reconstruction:

  • Asphalt pavement, brick, and concrete (ABC) are 70% complete
  • Rigid Pavement is 90% completed
  • Mandi Mor Bridge — all structure work completed except expansion joints & NJB
  • Nullah Lai Bridge – all structure work completed except expansion joints

While Mengal did not share any particulars regarding the progress on IJP Road he said that the project will be complete in less than a month.

  • Number of U-turns on main IJP road are very limited and the connections to the service roads also require serious attention.

  • It would be the biggest favor for the citizens of Isb/Rwp that the Govt initiates and completes the Ring road to solve the traffic problems of the twin cities. Till than roads would be made to be broken.
