A delegation of Traders Welfare Association, Jinnah Super Market, Islamabad visited Islamabad Chamber of Commerce and Industry led by its President Muhammad Ejaz Abbasi and stressed upon the CDA to construct parking plazas in commercial centres to ease the parking issues.

While addressing the delegation, Khalid Chaudhry, Acting President, Islamabad Chamber of Commerce & Industry said that future parking needs are not being considered which has become a serious issue for traders and visitors adding Capital Development Authority should construct parking plazas in major commercial centres.

He said Planning Division of CDA had decided to construct parking plazas in Super Market, Jinnah Super, F-10 Markaz and Blue Area but later the decision was shelved due to unknown reasons.

Muhammad Ejaz Abbasi, President, Traders Welfare Association, Jinnah Super Market, Islamabad said that a 13 storey plaza has been constructed in Jinnah Super by eliminating a dispensary, but no sewerage and water supply arrangements have been made for such a big project. He stressed that CDA should arrange these facilities before the onset of summer season otherwise; the area would face serious problems.

He said CDA had planned to up-grade Jinnah Super Market, but despite lapse of about three years, no work has been undertaken for up-gradation.
