ISLAMABAD: The Senate Standing Committee on Climate Change on Thursday asked the Capital Development Authority (CDA) to stop the expansion of Islamabad Highway until a no-objection certificate is issued by the Pakistan Environment Protection Agency (Pak-EPA).

The direction was issued when the committee learnt that the CDA had started widening the three-lane highway without getting an environmental clearance from Pak-EPA.
