7th Avenue Construction is Already Caving in Within a Few Months

ISLAMABAD: The construction of 7th Avenue in Aabpara, which was spearheaded by the National Logistic Cell (NLC) after winning the bid as the lowest bidder, has encountered a setback.

One side of an exit in Aabpara has started to cave in just a few months after the avenue’s inauguration.

It is worth noting that Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif had directed the authorities to expedite the project’s completion to ensure it was inaugurated before the deadline.

Originally, the deadline for the project was set for October 2022. However, the government decided to operationalize the roadway on August 14, 2022. Unfortunately, the incessant rain caused the authorities to scrap those plans.

As a result, the Capital Development Authority (CDA) announced the opening of the 7th Avenue flyover to the public on September 29th.

Despite the efforts to complete the project before the deadline, the recent caving-in incident shows that there are still issues that need to be addressed.

The authorities responsible for the construction of 7th Avenue must work to resolve the issue promptly to ensure the safety of the public using the roadway.

The incident highlights the importance of prioritizing the quality of infrastructure projects over fast-tracking their completion to meet deadlines.


  1. Engineeeing projects should not be pushed to complete as engineering practices has to followed and time lines as per these practices has to adhered because of hasty decisions quality is compromised and this is only done in Pakistan no where is the world it is done that way.

  2. Time management should not be a big issue for such huge and resourceful construction company and there are several examples where such projects were accomplished in limited time.

  3. Unfortunately the PM SS is in the habit of forcing the project managers to complete projects before the tehnically and logistically agreed time lines ignoring its adverse effects on the projects. If someone shows the guts not to follow his orders as was done by Gen. Muzamil the ex Chairman WAPDA, he is victimized like him.

    1. کسی بھی پراجیکٹ پر نظر ڈالیں، کرپشن سے پاک نہیں ملے گا۔ کہیں کم، کہیں زیادہ۔ اور اس کرپشن دھندے میں سب سے زیادہ انجینئرنگ مافیا شامل ہے۔خواہ آرمی ہو یا سول، کرپشن سے پاک نہیں ۔
      اور کرپشن بنیادیں کمزور کرتی ہے۔

    2. It was imran govt who made sure tat only fwo and nlc will get all the contracts, without any eligibilty, being a cowrad ik submitted againgst the will of his masters.

  4. Poor quality of material like Bara Kahu, is the one and only reason for caving of 7th Avenue..

  5. Army must not be in private business …this is east India company model ….it discourages private investment and innovation …for it’s bad for competition

  6. Is the Speed only issue? Or there can be issues of bad Material, bad practices etc. Without investigation reporting such issues does not help to resolve the issues rather to politicize the issue.
    If time is the only parameter then why the most delayed Peshawar BRT still has issues?

  7. NLC, FWO are doing nothing but subletting the contract to petty contractors and enjoying the hefty commissions and destroying competitive construction culture of Pakistan. You will find no third party check on the ongoing projects. You just see the way Islamabad Highway project management from koral chowk to T chowk u will be ashamed with their working behaviour.

    1. Hasty completion and low price contracting results in inferior results just as seen now. Eliminating private sector over semi government enterprises is another reason. Quality should be the awarding criteria and reasonable pricing not the lowest

  8. Nature cannot be changed and no one is nearer and dearer to Creator al mighty.

    No, personal ethics as a Muslim and human.
    No law and order in any organization or body.
    Just to blame one party or organization is not the solutions.

  9. Same will happen with bharakahu bypass.
    2 incidents have happened already.
    may Allah protect us from Shahbaz speed.
