Margalla Avenue Islamabad also known as Islamabad Margalla Highway is a 33 km road project. Islamabad Margalla road is one of the projects of the Capital Development Authority commonly known as CDA. Margalla Avenue Islamabad was initiated to lessen the snarling up of the traffic at the GT Road while connecting it to KPK and other nearby localities. Initially, Islamabad Margalla Highway was initiated in 2006 but since then the project has faced many delays and setbacks and is still under construction. Later, in 2012 the project was approved and the contractors initiated the building of a 33 km road. The CDA gave the tender to Frontier Work Organisation (FWO). And now a swift construction of Margalla Avenue Islamabad is observed as the issue of the graveyard near Shah Allah Ditta is resolved as the route of Islamabad Margalla Highway is realigned towards the southern side.
The purpose of Margalla Avenue Islamabad is to reduce the traffic load. The road starts from G.T. Road at Sangjani. The Islamabad Margalla Highway will connect Sector B-17 to Sector E of Islamabad. Moreover, the new Margalla Avenue project will also connect the new under-development sectors of C13 to C16, Margalla Avenue project is also said to be Islamabad’s Master Plan. Phase 1 of Margalla is completed and it connects the route from GT Road to the D12 Sector of the Capital.
Despite all the troubles and delays the Margalla Avenue Islamabad has faced, the completion of Islamabad Margalla Highway will have the way to more new ventures in the real estate sector.
