Ongoing projects’ completion top priority


Deputy Commissioner Sialkot Maisam Abbas has said under the Punjab Intermediate Cities Improvement Investment Programme (PICIIP), the top priority of the district administration is to complete the ongoing development projects in the city at the earliest.

He was addressing a meeting of the representatives of the National Engineering Services Pakistan (NESPAK) and contractor companies, participating in the PICIIP, at the DC Office Committee Room. The meeting was attended by Additional Deputy Commissioner Finance and Planning Syeda Amina Maududi, Chief Engineer PICIIP Muhammad Akhtar Abbasi, Director PICIIP Asifa Khan, Senior Resident Engineer NESPAK Saifullah Amin, Deputy Director Development Abdul Rauf, XEN Public Health Engineering Department Abdul Waheed, AD Development Mohsin Ali Riaz, SDO Highway Saim Ali Khan and representatives of the departments concerned.

The DC said reconstruction of Defence Road, Khadim Ali Road and Jail Road was part of the PICIIP project, and the remaining works including carpeting of these roads, water supply and connection of sewerage lines would be completed this month. He said the monsoon rains and slow work on the project by the contractor of the PICIIP project led to delay in the project.
