Are we going to make new threads for each flyover?

I think threads should only be reserved for major infrastructure like mass transit, motorways, massive interchange, etc. I am closing this thread for the moment. If this is indeed something massive, post the render on lahore development thread..we'll judge it and if required re-open the thread.

According to an engineer, pilling work has already started near Multan road site. Contract has been given to ZKB. And literally its an 8 km long expressway. Expectations are it will also include MBS track in the middle of expressway.

Gulberg-Babu Sabu elevated road work to start in September

Lahore Development Authority (LDA) is expected to start work on a 10-kilometre elevated road from Gulberg to Babu Sabu Interchange in September, The Express Tribune has learnt. The Rs27 billion Elevated Express Highway will facilitate around 100,000 vehicles per day and reduce traffic load in key city areas.

According to LDA officials, the project proposal (PC-I) is in the final stages of preparation in consultation with the National Engineering Services Pakistan (NESPAK). Contracts for land acquisition, shifting of electricity and gas lines and building of pylons on the Cantonment Drain have been awarded. Three pylons for the expressway have already been built on the drain, while a total of 337 more will be built.

The elevated road will start from Gulberg’s Main Boulevard and follow the route of the drain. The ramp on the drain will meet the main elevated highway at the canal. From there, the elevated expressway will travel into Shadman. It will cross Ferozepur Road at Shama. From Multan Road, it will turn towards Gulshan-i-Ravi, where pylons will be built on the green belt. From Gulshan-i-Ravi Road, the bridge will pass over Bund Road and end 1.5 kilometres from Babu Sabu.

LDA Chief Engineer Israr Saeed said the project would be completed in 12 months. “Around 800 kanals of land would be acquired for the project,” he said. He said 740 kanals would be used for building an interchange and a bus station on Bund Road. “The acquisition of land for the project will be completed by the end of August. Construction on the project will start in September,” Saeed said. He said the expressway will have eight lanes, four on each side.

Good decision then. MBS on this route will be a fail. Doesn't make any sense.

True! Being a resident of Gulshan-e-Ravi, I think that this 27 Billion Rs is a total waste of money and total destruction of a very good and wide green belt of Gulshan ravi main boulevard. There will seriously be no need of any such elevated expressway only if the morons of TEPA and LDA finish that project of 3 lane road over Samnabad naala. Gulshan ravi main boulevard is alreayd 3 to 4 lanes each side and after completion of that samnabad naala project, commuters will have a decent enough direct access from Gulberg/ferozpur road to Motorway and Babusabu!

This project will facilitate people living around DHA in getting access to the motorway. Its a good project however would have liked to see Southern Ring Road completed first.

The Gulshan Ravi main boulevard is quite wide from where bund road starts but it needs to be widened up to the point of babu sabu interchange. The green belt is not imp as the sudden narrow lanes have often caused accidents and people are also jaywalking on this road which would be finished when the lanes will be widened.
