Much needed project.
Considering its cost and actual requirement of the location, i am sure it would be a big interchange. Most likely, it would be 3 level crossing.

yes. it is also known as loyewala bypass. This is probably the only place on N-5 that has a traffic signal.

They should build a cloverleaf interchange at this intersection not a simple flyover.

NESPAK to build signal-free interchange at GT Road

Quote:


LAHORE: National Engineering Services Pakistan (NESPAK) on Wednesday was assigned the task of a detailed design by the Communication and Works Department for a signal-free interchange at Aziz Cross, Gujranwala.

Presently, the traffic system on GT Road at Aziz Cross completely requires uplift in level of service and quality.

According to a press release, the project comprises construction of a main flyover of three lanes on either side for traffic coming from Rawalpindi and Lahore entering into or exiting Gujranwala City.

Two loops will be provided, leading to eastern and western side bypasses.

This arrangement will provide a partial cloverleaf pattern at the interchange.

Elevated directional ramps will also be installed, which will lead the traffic coming from eastern and western bypasses towards Rawalpindi and Gujranwala city.

The project also includes a two-lane bridge over railway line.

PC–1 of the project with an estimated cost of Rs5.79 billion has been approved by the Planning and Development Department.

Work on the design is in progress. The project is expected to complete in 10 months.Meanwhile, the Strategic Planning Unit of Lahore Development Authority entrusted NESPAK with a feasibility study of Ravi Riverfront Urban Development Project.

The scope of consultancy includes carrying out topographic survey of the project area measuring 110,000 acres along River Ravi over a length of 46 kilometres.

It also includes geotechnical investigations and socio-economic survey of the project area. Substantial work of geotechnical investigations and socio-economic survey has been completed. Work on topographic survey is in progress

A much needed project

this is great, that intersection was jammed all the times due to huge traffic coming from Rawalpindi side and from inside of the city as well. now the traffic will run smooth without interruption. good news. by the way, do you know when the construction work will start?
