Islamabad, December 20, 2017: The Asphalt Mixing Plant has been made fully functional in Machinery Pool Organization (MPO) of Metropolitan Corporation Islamabad (MCI) and its daily production capacity is 1500 kilogram per day, which can carpet an area of 135 square feet. The Korean Asphalt Mixing Plant was installed in MPO Workshop 25 years ago and remained nonfunctional due to which MPO had to award contract for carpeting of roads worth millions of rupees. But now this plant has been made functional and its production capacity is being covering the carpeting work of different roads in Islamabad. Some 200 kilometer road network in the Federal Capital has been carpeted, which help saved Rs.120.00 million in this regard.
