A plea to Minister CAD
Simply Dam road, Barakhau Islamabad was built by Islamabad Administration, more than thirty years ago to cater for transport requirements of local population and to make easy access of govt officials to Simply Dam and government installations there.
At that time, there was tiny local population of villages on both sides of the road, which has now increased in tens of thousands after emerging new housing schemes, towns etc. to the extent that the Election Commission of Pakistan had to create a new constituency NA-49 for true and effective representation of the people of the area in National Assembly.
The Simply Dam road is sole link to Barakahu and the Federal capital for thousands of dwellers of the villages, towns and premier colonies like PTV colony, Shaheen Farms, Green Valley etc. that fall on the both sides of the road from Barakahu, Phulgram, Athaal, Pend-Begwal, Mara-Begwal, Malote and beyond. Now the road is busiest one and sometimes looks like Murree-Muzzafarabad road owing to traffic rush and jam.
The road looks like ruins of ancient times of Mughal era or beyond. Miserable road condition is a cause of hassles not only for general public, but also for thousands of Federal government employees and students, who use that road to attend to their offices and colleges. Ironically, Simply Dam road is deprived of Islamabad administration’s attention for last three years despite the fact that the Federal Minister CADD, Dr. Tariq Fazal Chaudhry, who is very pragmatic in power corridors, represents the people of the area and PMLN nearly swept in recent local bodies elections. The Minister CADD, Dr. Tariq Fazal Chaudhry, Mayor Federal Area and other relevant authorities need to pay attention on repairs of Simply Dam road to save the local population from traffic hardships. —Barakahu, Islamabad
