Islamabad: According to a CDA representative, the building of Pakistan’s first one-kilometer eco-friendly plastic road at F-9 Park would be completed shortly.

He went on to say that it is a huge step forward from traditional asphalt roads to future-proof plastic roads that offer both performance and sustainability benefits.
He stated that 500 to 600 tons of municipal garbage, as well as 150 to 200 tons of plastic waste, are collected every day in Islamabad. He stated that recycling the daily collected plastic in road construction will considerably reduce environmental pollution in the city.
He went on to say that after the F-9 pilot project; the concept will not only be used in Islamabad but will also be copied in other cities throughout the country and on important routes in the capital.
