Capital gets modern facilities

36

AFTER successful implementation of his directives for prompt launching of the Metro Bus project connecting Islamabad airport with Peshawar Morr, Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif, on Thursday, inaugurated another much-awaited modern transport facility for residents of Islamabad.

He launched Blue Line and Green Line Metro Bus Service on the 15 kilometre long Bhara Kahu-PIMS route, one of the busiest routes in the federal capital to provide relief to daily commuters.

True to his reputation of being crazy about developmental activities, the Prime Minister is coming out with a multitude of projects to alleviate sufferings of the people and resolve their problems.

Apart from the Blue Line and Green Line transport system, he has already issued instructions for launching of Bhara Kahu and Rawat sections of Metro Bus project that would go a long way in addressing traffic congestion on these routes that has become a nightmare for travellers.

In 2018, the PML(N) government initiated work on expansion of the Koral-Rawat section of Islamabad Expressway but unfortunately the work remained stalled during the last four years and now again the new Government is going to launch the project after Eidul Azha.

The importance that the coalition Government is attaching to resolution of the problems of residents of the capital and to modernize facilities for them is evident from the fact that projects worth thirty billion rupees are envisaged for Islamabad including expansion of Islamabad Safe City from the existing thirty percent to hundred percent area.

It is also important to note that the salary of Islamabad Police has been raised to match with that of the Punjab Police, which would encourage the police force to perform its responsibilities with dedication and zeal.

The decision to make the FC anti-riot force would also help ensure maintenance of law and order, which has become a source for concern for people due to the tendency of violent politics.

The present Government has also announced a comprehensive plan to shift public sector buildings to solar energy and hopefully federal government would make Islamabad a model in this regard.
