Islamabad’s Sihala flyover entrusted to FWO for speedy completion

FWO plays a commendable role in ensuring the smooth execution of government projects. Due to its efficiency and timely completion of projects, the government often entrusts FWO with important projects in Pakistan.

In a major achievement, Frontier Works Organization (FWO) bagged the Sihala flyover project in Islamabad. The Capital Development Authority (CDA) awarded the contract to FWO for the construction of the Rs. 770 million flyover project on Kahuta Road.

Last year, CDA entrusted the project to a private company. However, the company failed to start the project. Later on, it gave up this project while citing an increase in the construction material cost.

Therefore, CDA awarded the contract of the Sihala flyover project to FWO at the same rate and terms and conditions. Work on the flyover project will start after Eid and is expected to be completed within one year.

In July 2021, former Prime Minister Imran Khan had also performed the groundbreaking of the Sihala Flyover project along with the Rawal Dam Interchange and Korang Bridge expansion projects.

FWO sustaining excellency

Pertinent to mention, FWO plays a commendable role in ensuring the smooth execution of government projects. Due to its efficiency and timely completion of projects, the government often entrusts FWO with important projects in Pakistan, for instance, the Rawalpindi Ring Road project.

Ever since its inception in 1966, FWO has progressed to become one of Pakistan’s largest engineering and construction organizations. Over the years, FWO has gone on to work on hundreds of diverse projects across the country, from KKH to the Makran Coastal Highway in Balochistan.

Recently, FWO made major progress on the construction of the Lillah-Jhelum dual carriageway (LJDC). Earlier this year, former PM Khan ordered the completion of Lillah-Jhelum dual carriageway by March 2023.

He directed the authorities concerned to finish phase one of the project — Lillah Interchange to Pind Dadan Khan and the second phase – Misri Morr to Bukhari Chowk by June this year. Furthermore, he instructed that the project will receive funds from Punjab’s development budget.
