frequent changes in governments decisions it couldn't be executed.In 2008, a
fresh feasibility study was conducted to construct the road from Channi Sher
Alam to Fatehjang near the New Islamabad Airport through foreign investors on
the basis of private-public partnership.In that plan, the RDA made changes by reducing
the total length of the road from 75km to 54km. It also dropped the idea of
laying a rail track along the road to connect the main railway lines with the
new airport. According to the officials “The changes were made to reduce
the project cost,”.
