ISLAMABAD: The Capital Development Authority (CDA) has embarked on a determined mission to combat encroachments and illegal constructions, undertaking a comprehensive crackdown across various areas of the federal capital.
At the helm of this endeavor are Chairman Captain (R) Anwar ul Haq and the Building Control Directorate of the CDA, working in tandem with the Enforcement Directorate, local administration, and Islamabad Police.
Together, they executed a stringent operation targeting several key locations, including GT Road, T-Chowk, Sohan Ada, and surrounding areas.
The operation yielded the demolition of multiple commercial buildings found to violate building by-laws.
In a significant development during this crackdown against building by-law violations, a total of 14 structures constructed without the requisite CDA approval met their end, accompanied by notices issued to the property owners.
The ambit of this crackdown extended to other vital areas across Islamabad, encompassing H-12, Pothohar Road, Kuri Road, Park Road, Bari Imam, and Rawal Town.
Moreover, these operations witnessed the removal of unauthorized constructions through the utilization of heavy machinery.
Furthermore, as part of the ongoing campaign to maintain Islamabad as a city free from encroachments, authorities seized eight trucks laden with confiscated materials, which were found on public roads and green belts.
