LAHORE | Lahore Ring Road | 40 KM + 45 KM | Infrastructure | U/C



Work on Lahore Ring Road to start soon: LRRP will strengthen infrastructure: Pervaiz

Staff Report



LAHORE: Punjab Chief Minister Chaudhry Pervaiz Elahi said on Friday that Lahore Ring Road Project (LRRP) would ensure smooth traffic and would strengthen the provincial economy and infrastructure.

Mr Elahi was presiding over a high-level meeting to review implementation of LRRP on Friday where he announced initiation of LRRP. The first section of the road would be constructed at Niazi Chowk, Bund Road and 14 interchanges would be built to provide better transport facilities to citizens, he added.

Punjab Chief Secretary Kamran Rasool, Finance Secretary Salman Siddique, Communications and Works Department Secretary Sibtain Fazal-e-Haleem and heads of various departments attended the meeting. Mr Elahi said highways connecting Lahore would be maintained under LRRP for ensuring smooth traffic. Railway crossings and over-head bridges were in the plan and would complement industrial zones, he added. He said LRRP would create employment and would prove to be hub of economic activities. Interchanges would be constructed on Bedian Road and Lidhar, where land would be acquired for Government Officers’ Residences (GOR)-I, GOR-II, GOR-III and new campuses of Government College University and Kinnaired College University, he added.

Mr Elahi said that around one million registered vehicles were using the roads and were increasing every year. The road network was being expanded in all cities of the province to provide better means of transportation, he added.

A delegation of journalists led by Lahore Press Club President Arshad Ansari called upon Mr Elahi on Friday. Talking to the delegation, Mr Elahi said that the Journalists’ Colony, spread over 1000 Kanals, would be constructed at Harbanspura, Lahore. Mr Elahi said that he would inaugurate the Journalists’ Colony within a month, where all basic facilities of life would be provided. He directed the administration to remove all hurdles within one month so that the plan for the colony could be carried out.

The sheikh zayed road connects 2 cities ... that is different to the LRR ... you can compare the LRR to the A40 or M4 in London ... these are parts of the London ring road network ... Ringroads like the Lahore ring road is a much bigger project than the sheikh zayed road.

C&W official said 2.5 yrs time but CM Punjab said that our primary target is to finish it with in 1.5 years and it is possible.

i saw the interview (recorded some time ago) of Malik Riaz (Chairman Bahria Town) and he said that i was in lahore and i saw the ring road project and i asked CM Punjab Y r u throwing ur money on a six lane double carrige road. its going to cost 12bn (old cost) and ull get nothing back, he said that i advised him to make it more beautiful and make wide service roads and make a highrise downtown on it and he said that if these plans are implemented then in a span of 2 years of completion LRR can produce a revenue of atleast 40bn.

Now the LRR costs 16bn and there are service lanes, but i dunno abt highrises. I was comparing it with Gulberg MB but after seeing the rendering i think Gulberg MB will be nothing compared to it.

well it wouldnt take long for the road to complete, but take about 5 years for the high rise down town to complete, i hope no idiot investers buy land on it and leave it there for about 10 years till prices go up and then sell it. they should sell plots to only those people interested in investing in towers and malls.
