(Naqash Munir, Islamabad: 2017)
Recently Capital Development Authority (CDA) Member Administration Yasir Pirzada said that Free WIFIs, and facilitation desks at entry and exit points of Islamabad would be established to facilitate the visitors from the other cities.
Installation of public WIFIs and facilitations desks for the general public is a good step. However in the city of Islamabad, public benches and trash bins are almost none at the most needed parts of the city. Generally public parks are located in the far sites and are normally accessed through some sort of transport. It is not necessary that a person will take a sit in a public park only.
A person who prefers to walk generally needs to take a break at some point of his/her walk and use a trash bin supposedly.
Therefore, to facilitate the visitors and locals is to first provide sitting benches, trash bins and better shade where people can make use of the WIFIs too with more comfort.
