Link road given go-ahead

Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif presided over a meeting at Arfa Software Technology Park and gave approval to the construction of a link road from Ring Road to Ferozpur Road. This road will be constructed from Ring Road Package-17 to Ferozpur Road along Khairan Distributory. Shahbaz Sharif directed the departments concerned to immediately start work on this track.

No the LRR has a dead end at the moment at P-17 near sui gas society at Kamaha road. Though there is a proposed interchange at Ferozpur road but the comes under Southern Loop, and that interchange would be a clover leaf interchange. But this would just be a link road from ferozpur road to LRR I guess.

BRT ON CANNEL ROAD

Yes, there is a plane to provide BRT on cannel road and Multan road. See the interview of Director Engineering Construction TEPA on page #264 posting # 5276. Also if u see the newly fabricated overhead pedestal bridges, there is a set of down stairs in the middle of bridge opening in the cannel. That is for the same purpose. Can be seen these new bridges photographs on page # 260

They are just rebuilding the Kamahan road i think. The road starts from Chungi Amar Sidhu on Ferozepur Road and runs along the Khaira Distributary and terminates at Ring Road Package 17 as they call it.

The rest of the Kamahan road was eaten up by the Ring Road, it was built over and replaced by the LRR.

Link.

Construction sector has actually 70 industries embedded into or linked with it. You start a construction project, you give earnings to people in all these sectors. It is a fact that USA brought itself out of the great depression of 30s by initiating (AND COMPLETING) massive infrastructure building throughout the country including road and railway. It provided business to businesses, jobs to jobless, market access to farms.

So, to bring the economy out of recession, start building (without corruption )

New overhead bridges

From TNB to Doctors hospital underpass = 3
From Doctors hospital underpass to Jinnah hospital underpass = 1
From Jinnah hospital underpass to PU underpass = 1 (3 were already there)
From PU underpass to Garden town underpass = 0
From Garden town underpass to Muslim town underpass = 1
From Muslim town underpass to FC underpass = 0
From FC underpass to Jail road underpass = 1
From Jail road underpass to Mall road underpass = 1

So, there are 11 (8 new & 3 old) overhead bridges on canal road from TNB to Mall road underpass....
