As per sources, the Capital Development Authority (CDA) announced renaming roads after prominent people to honor their contributions to the nation on 21st December.

Last month, the Capital Development Authority (CDA) renamed the recently-built PWD interchange after the deceased nuclear scientist Dr Abdul Qadeer Khan.

Sources now report that the same CDA board meeting decided to revive the abandoned move to name the town’s three roads after historic figures Josh Malihabadi, Jameeluddin Aali, and Hafeez Jalandhari. As a result, CDA will forward four names to the federal government for final approval.

A previous plan, announced in 2019, allocated the names Jameeluddin Aali Road for the Service Road (South) of Sector D-12, Josh Malihabadi Road for the Service Road (West) of Sector D-12 and Hafeez Jalandhari Road for the Service Road (East) of Sector D-12. The new names of the roads will be displayed on signboards on the sites after approval.
