Sheikh Pervez Ahmed, Senior Vice President, Islamabad Chamber of Commerce and Industry has called upon the Capital Development Authority to urgently repair Islamabad Dry Port main road and Industrial Areas roads on priority in order to facilitate the trade and industrial activities.
He said Islamabad Dry Port road was broken since long, but CDA was paying no attention to its repair due to which the heavy vehicles going to dry port and industrial areas were facing great problems. He stressed that CDA should work on war footing basis to repair these broken roads and restore the faulty street lights of these areas.
He said government was earning millions of rupees from dry port and industrial areas in terms of sales tax and excise duty but was paying no attention to develop roads of these areas at part with international standards due to which business community was facing great inconvenience. 
Sheikh Pervez Ahmed said that the condition of roads in I-11 Sector near Metro Habib Cash and Carry was also deplorable as these roads were dotted with frequent big potholes. He stressed upon the CDA to repair these broken roads on urgent basis. 
He said water supply system of CDA has failed to supply water in overhead water tanks in I-9 and I-10 industrial and residential areas due to which the industrialists and residents were facing acute water shortage issue. He said CDA’s water tanks were also unable to provide water on time in these areas while the civic body was spending millions of rupees on their fuels. He said CDA should arrange bores in these areas to cope with water shortage issue.
Sheikh Pervez Ahmed said CDA was supplying bored water in I-8 sector due to which there was no issue of water shortage in this area and stressed that CDA should make similar arrangements in I-9 and I-10 sectors to ensure regular supply of water to these areas.
