Gwadar Development Authority (GDA) initiated construction activities on Friday to enhance and expand the Makki Masjid-Mullah Fazil Chowk section of Syed Zahoor Hashmi Road, commonly known as Airport Road. This marks a pivotal step towardsadvancing the city’s connectivity and underscores the commitment to bolstering its overall development.
Based on the directive issued by Dawood Khan Khilji, GDA Director Gene, the initiative aims to address a long-standing demand from the local community for better connectivity.
The stakeholders and public circles in Gwadar not only expressed satisfaction with the initiation of the work on the city’s crucial business highway but also stressed the urgent implementation of the long-delayed project. They voiced confidence in wholeheartedly supporting the construction and development of this significant project.
“Due to illegal occupation and unauthorized encroachments, the construction work on Maki Masjid to Mala Fazil Chowk was stalled for many years,” reads GDA’s statement. However, the government has already arranged a handsome amount as compensation for the legitimate owners if their shops or properties are disturbed during the expansion of the road. “These compensations, benchmarked against market values, represent the most competitive rates in the entire region,” according to GDA.
The improvement and widening of the road will facilitate convenient access to key business hubs in the city, such as Mullah Fazil Chowk and Shahi Bazaar. With the upgradation of the road, Mullah Fazil Chowk will also get sewerage and drainage lines, which is an environmental issue for the city of Gwadar.
Located in the centre of the CPEC pilot region, Gwadar, Marina Enclave Gwadar is an upcoming gated community that will provide a luxurious and convenient environment for its residents. Those looking to make a safe investment in Gwadar may do so by purchasing one of the more than 700 residential or commercial plots available in this magnificent project. The investors may book a plot via an interest-free payment plan, with monthly instalments beginning at £80.
