Islamabad’s new highway renamed ‘Iran Avenue’ ahead of Raisi’s visit

Islamabad: In an act of camaraderie with Iran, Pakistan will dedicate a new highway in Islamabad to its ally.

This renaming precedes the visit of Iranian President Seyyed Ibrahim Raisi to Pakistan, scheduled from April 22 to 24. This visit marks the first by any head-of-state following the general elections on February 8.

Sources reveal that the government plans to rename Eleventh Avenue to Iran Avenue. The decision was ratified by the cabinet following a proposal by the Capital Development Authority (CDA) circulated among its members.

It is important to highlight that the CDA initiated the construction of Eleventh Avenue.

Currently, the avenue extends from Sector D-12 to the northeast corner of E-11, featuring an interchange at Khayaban Iqbal. The next phase will see its extension to IJ Principal Road.
