The water supply lines are about 487 km in length while for overseas block, the length is about 30 km.
After a thorough and intense ERS investigation process and bore testing, WASA and RDA will source water for the society. The project has some subsoil water on the site while nine turbines are already working in the area. Expectedly, the other 40 turbines will also be used to speed up the work.
Approximately, Capital Smart City developers will need at least 5 years’ time to complete the infrastructural development of the society. As per the plans, some primary schools, shops, and mosques will be built within 3 years and for the people who have started building their houses.
However, talking about the exact timeline, the project is expected to be completed and handed over in the first quarter of 2020.
At the initial stages, about 400 machines and equipment are deployed on the site while the number is increasing with every passing day and it is expected that the number would go as high as 550 machines.

The Overseas Block is set aside for overseas Pakistani only. Local Pakistani can, however, buy them in resale. Since they have top-notch facilities, the demand for Overseas Block is quite high. The reason for such appeal is as follows:
- Firstly, the living standard comparable to that of foreign countries
- Secondly, the interchange provides direct access from Motorway
- Thirdly, it lies right next to Main Boulevard
The Executive Block is specifically for those buyers who pay their installments on time. The location of the block is therefore prime.
