Islamabad, August 04, 2016 (PPI-OT):The Islamabad Chamber of Commerce and Industry (ICCI) has appealed to the Islamabad Mayor Sheikh Ansar Aziz to take notice of the poor quality repair of Islamabad Dry Port main double road as it was creating lot of dust pollution in I-9 and I-10 Industrial Areas and creating hurdles in the growth of business activities.
Atif Ikram Sheikh, President, Sheikh Pervez Ahmed Senior Vice President and Sheikh Abdul Waheed Vice President, Islamabad Chamber of Commerce and Industry said that Islamabad Dry Port was playing an important role in promoting exports/imports activities in this region and it should have been developed at par with international standards. However, its repair by CDA was quite sub-standard as it has not been properly carpeted as yet due to which the road was spreading lot of dust pollution in I-9 and I-10 areas creating health hazards for the industrialists, road users and the residents of its surrounding areas.
They said the main double road was providing access to Islamabad Dry Port and almost daily heavy duty vehicles and big containers were playing on this road to pick/drop commercial consignments from/at Islamabad Dry Port. However, on account of its sub-standard repair work, the vehicles plying on this road were sending off clouds of dust in the air due to which pedestrians, motorcyclists and people living in the vicinity of this road were inhaling dust, which was dangerous for their health.
They stressed that Islamabad Metropolitan Corporation and CDA should pay immediate attention to this important road and arrange its urgent carpeting to save the people from dust pollution and to facilitate the smooth promotion of business activities.
