Nice project. The existing road between Iqbal Park and Badshahi Masjid is ridiculous, which has converted this whole area into a sheer mess. One feels no attraction in going to this area for visit which contain few of the most historic landmarks of our history like Badshahi Masjid, Shahi Qila and Iqbal Park etc.

I strongly wish that they totally eliminate the bus stand from Badami Bagh and shift it towards outer side of Ring rd at some appropriate place.

Agreed ... only concern would be parking. I hope they find a solution as the existing road use to provide parking as well for the historic places.

Yeah I agree, a proper parking place needs to be constructed! Plus the existing road should be made into a pedestrian red brick or cobbled stone road! With lots of trees and fountains!

Hope they use some good landscape architect!!

Special Thank to OMI92 for making very good pictures and news of Lahore. I just saw this thread today even I know about this project.

This project will certainly change the look of Lahore.

As we can say without any doubt that Metro Bus apart from its usage / benefit changed the whole look of Lahore and after completion of Metro Bus project roads along with the Metro Bus route are now much organized and gives a look we saw only in European movies not in Pakistan.

Again a very BEAUTIFUL PROJECT and pray for its success !!!!!!!!!

Wow Now I know that this is a big project, and was very much needed for this most congested area of the city.
