CPEC western route accelerates urbanisation around new airport

Staff Reporter

The Hakla-D.I.Khan section of CPEC western route (M-14) has triggered a massive wave of real estate investments in Fateh Jang tehsil, making it a new hotspot for housing schemes adjacent to new airport, says a report published by Gwadar Pro on Tuesday. Fateh Jang is the first interchange towards D.I.Khan on CPEC western route after Hakla, which connects M-14 to M-1.

This tehsil also hosts the new Islamabad international airport while the $ 8.2 billion CPEC project of Pakistan Railways’ Mail Line-1 also passes through Fateh Jang. According to the report, as the M-14 nears completion with June 2021 as the expected timeline for inauguration, Fateh Jang has gained enormous importance for urbanisation as people start relocating to areas around motorways and the CPEC route for better connectivity and future prospects including industrialisation.

The planned Rawalpindi Ring Road also intersects with the CPEC route near the new Islamabad airport, a further addition to the importance of this beautiful area. With about 90% works of the 285-kilometre M-14 already done, several housing schemes have emerged near Fateh Jang interchange while the existing societies have accelerated development to attract investors.

Islamabad Cooperative Housing Society (ICHS) was once a forgotten scheme, but has now become an attraction as its main gate is located near the Fateh Jang interchange. The Avenue-3 is also one of the several new housing projects to benefit from this interchange. Another interchange expected on M-14/N-80 intersection and the Hakla interchange on M-1 will provide hassle-free connectivity with Islamabad to sector D-17 of the capital and the cooperative housing societies developed by various agencies of the federal government for their employees.
