ISLAMABAD: The Federal Development Agency (FDA) has opened tenders for the construction of Tenth Avenue and awarded the contract to NLC, the lowest bidder. Tenth Avenue will be built in two phases.
The first phase will include construction of five km long road with installation of drainage system, construction of underpasses between roads and at railway crossings and electrical work while the second phase will include construction of flyover on Srinagar Highway.
Development work on both phases of Tenth Avenue will cost a total of Rs 10.28 billion.
The construction of Tenth Avenue is part of Islamabad’s master plan but no practical steps have been taken in the past for its construction.
The construction of Tenth Avenue will provide indirect services to the residents of Sector I10, H9, I9, H9 and other adjoining sectors while the construction of this road will also improve the flow of traffic on other adjoining major highways.
