The second active project with the Directorate is Tarnol Housing Scheme. The site of this housing project is 8 Kms away from Tarnol GT Road junction and 25 kms from Islamabad and Chaklala. Tarnol Housing Scheme was formally launched in August 1989. Purchase of land, consolidation process, possession and settlement of claims / disputes continued for quite some time. Finally, in 1992 Air Headquarters decided to settle all issues with the land owners to initiate the development work. The land consolidation took almost 04 years i.e till the end of 1995. Tarnol Housing Scheme is located in the extended area of zone-II of Islamabad. In the vicinity of our project, 13 other housing schemes are also being developed. Tarnol Scheme spans over a distance of 2 kms along Rawalpindi Fateh Jang road and is a fine blend of flat, sloping and undulating ground. The scheme is divided into 8 blocks. The Motorway interchange just opposite Block ‘A’ of Fazaia Housing Scheme Tarnol provides excellent communication facility to the residents and has reduced approach time to important places of Rawalpindi / Islamabad area considerably.
The development pace of the Tarnol Project remained a challenging job. Slow but consistent efforts were put in by the directorate since its establishment. Nevertheless, the revitalization of Tarnol Project remained the utmost priority for Directorate of Estate Projects. To capitalize on the opportunities, rehabilitation works started promptly with start of new millennium, which included construction of boundary wall, new sewerage network, new commercial plazas and construction of roads. Besides, the additional land was also procured to enhance the capacity of this scheme. By the Grace of Almighty this project started growing and flourishing. The renowned City School has made its way to the project. Shahpur Dam water project is on its finishing stages and the pace of constructing homes in the society has increased. The paced up development work, falling in the premises of new Islamabad International Airport and situated on the orifice of Motorway / Kashmir Highway interchange had increased its market value like never before.
