Last time I was in PK , I took this Faisalabad-Lahore Dual Carriage way and they were building another toll Plaza just before you face Motorway ramp (which is closed as of now). From what I learn the closure was a fight between Dual Carriage way authority and NLC as the cars will not be taking the exit on the Dual Carriage and the operating company was going to loose revenue. So to fix this issue, they were going to build this new toll Plaza ( I think the location is Begam Kot). Not sure what is the current status of it, but if that Toll Plaza and Motorway ramp comes operational , going and coming from Faisalabad would be very easy as you have to face crap load of traffic if you enter via Saghian or west Lahore.

I always took a turn back and enter motorway from Jaranwala exit on the other side and exit on thokar rather quickly.


PS: not a bad idea although I'm against any development which takes out agriculture land - we have already lost a lot of good agri land and we are going to suffer one day.

We can but we don't have any proper render/map/design/route of the project yet. Once we get all the details online then surely we will start a new thread and post all the information there.

NEW BUS STAND

We have to see the future requirement of city may be for time being we face little problems. In my opinion: Thoker Nayaz Baeg is the best area for New Bus Stand. Buses want to move toward Pind directly can choose M2.The Buses want to go through Nayazi Interchange ,can go through Ring road and then the part of ring road “Band Road” then to Shahdara. No need to go on Multan Road. Toward Multan already no problem. Same for Kasur it will be no problem when it completes the ring road. Now If we see the city internal routs, as city government planning BRT on canal road it will solve the problem of that area it will link most of the main roads. Same there is also plane BRT on Multan road, so it will cover that area also.

Yes you are exactly right dude but as I earlier said that the transport mafia is too strong, they never would care for wtf is or will be planned for future. Thokar nayaz beg is the best place for a main bus terminal of Lahore. But the court has given the stay order in the favor of transport mafia against CGDL & I wonder how long this case will now remain in court and the plan of shutting down the BadamiBagh lari adda would ever be implemented or not.

May be you gentlemen would like to consider the approachability of the passengers as well. TNB is at the southern end of the city, with very few direct public transport rout actually going there.

My point is that a location should chosen as to reduce hassle for everyone; passengers, transporters, traffic managers etc. TNB location would cause the similar traffic Jam on Multan Road as it causes in Bakar Mandi area, affecting the flow of highway traffic.

Usage of ring road by intercity transport would cause serious disruptions on the high speed zone as their drivers/conductors are prone to stop the vehicle suddenly upon seeing a prospective passenger.

The proposed Babu Sabu location is accessible from every area of the city and several public routes run along the Bund road 24/7. this location will not cause any disruption at any location in the city or highway (provided intercity vehicles are not allowed on Ring road). Shahdra is easily served using Faizpur interchange of Motorway and Jaranwala road. for passengers of adjoining areas, TNB can still serve as supplementary pick up/ drop off point as it currently does.

Good Idea. But it will require removal of several hundreds (if not thousands) of trees
