Islamabad Aims for Eco-City Status with Electric Vehicles

Details indicate that going forward, the CDA will only purchase electric motorcycles, which is a big step in the right direction to reduce pollution in the environment. By phasing out conventional motorcycles and introducing eco-friendly electric buses, the CDA aims to significantly reduce the city’s carbon footprint. This transition is part of a sweeping environmental initiative designed to promote sustainable urban mobility and enhance the quality of life for residents.

This ambitious initiative marks a significant step towards transforming Islamabad into an eco-friendly city through the adoption of electric vehicles and comprehensive infrastructure improvements.

Furthermore, addressing critical infrastructure gaps, Minister Naqvi announced the transition of emergency services administration from the Metropolitan Corporation Islamabad (MCI) to the CDA. This move promises enhanced, internationally standard emergency services for residents, ensuring rapid and efficient responses to emergencies. The Minister also emphasized efficient urban management, underscoring the imminent establishment of the Capital Waste Management Company. Plans are being expedited to finalize matters related to waste management, aiming to improve cleanliness and waste disposal across the city.

To alleviate traffic congestion, Mohsin Naqvi outlined imminent construction plans for the Serena Chowk Underpass and F-9 Park Chowk Flyover projects. These projects are expected to ease traffic flow and reduce travel times for commuters. Additionally, the long-awaited completion of the Expressway project has been prioritized to further improve connectivity within the city.

In a bid to ensure equitable development, the Minister pledged to complete development initiatives in underdeveloped sectors of Islamabad. This includes ensuring timely possession for allottees, thereby addressing longstanding issues of land allocation and development delays. By focusing on both the development of new infrastructure and the completion of existing projects, the government aims to create a more balanced and inclusive urban environment.

The meeting at CDA headquarters highlighted the government’s commitment to transforming Islamabad into a modern, eco-friendly city. With the introduction of electric vehicles, enhanced emergency services, and strategic infrastructure projects, Islamabad is set to become a model for sustainable urban development in Pakistan. The combined efforts of the CDA and the federal government are expected to significantly improve the city’s livability, making it a better place for its residents and a more attractive destination for visitors.
