January 27, 2020

Islamabad : After resuming work of G-7/G-8 underpass at Faisal Avenue, work on safer plantation of grown trees is in progress with utilization of a latest transplantor at new locations.

A committee under the directions of the Pakistan Environmental Protection Agency (PAK-EPA) constituted for scientific transplantation of grown trees which were affected due to construction work of underpass is supervising the transplantation process. A committee has directed the concerned formation to ensure proper monitoring of the transplanted trees for ensuring their survival so that after completion, the project could add to the environment in the surroundings.

It is pertinent to mention here that in order to preserve green character of city and for its further enhancement CDA management has devised a policy to plant 30 plants in lieu of one affected tree. Acting upon this policy not only new trees planted but affected trees are being transplanted at alternative sites. In line with the directions of the CDA management massive tree plantation has been carried out in the surroundings of the vicinity of under construction underpass.
