Power to Centaurus
The city managers have allocated a piece of land in Fatima Jinnah Park for installation of a grid station to provide electricity to the under-construction Centaurus Tower in Sector F-8, Blue Area commercial centre and some residential sectors.
“We have allocated land for the grid station and asked Iesco to start work on the project,” said CDA spokesman Ramzan Sajid.
Whatever cost is required for the grid station would be paid by the CDA, he added.
Negating an impression that the CDA’s poor financial condition did not allow such a project, the spokesman said: “The financial position of the CDA is not so bad that it cannot bear the cost of a grid station.”
