The provincial government is thinking upon lifting the ban on the high-rise buildings and other constructions on the prominent locations in Murree, notwithstanding approval of all the stakeholders, which includes the environmentalist lobby and the climate change ministry.
On Thursday a delegation of the MNAs from Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf—PTI headed by Sadaqat Abbasi met with the Punjab Chief Minister—Usman Buzdar in the capital city.
The lawmakers have asked the chief minister of lifting the ban on construction as it had entirely ceased the construction industry in Murree.
While responding to the request of the PTI MNA, CM assured of a positive decision after consulting with all the stakeholders.
As per the reports of local media, Abbasi, when asked, said that the ban would be lifted soon after which the construction work would restart in Murree with full bloom.
During the same meeting, the CM gave directives for boosting tourism in Kotli Satyan and Murree.
Buzdar asked for the revamp of all recreational locations as well as the construction and repair of all roads leading to both areas for the ease of the visitors and for boosting tourism.
The CM said that all the main roads and link-roads leading to the tourist location should be repaired, widened and constructed on a permanent basis.
After the directions by the head of the provincial government, the carpeting and widening of road from Murree to Kohala have been accelerated.
