Mareer Chowk tunnel project to be completed by March 15

Mareer Chowk tunnel project will be completed until March 15, as nearly 40 percent work on the project has been completed, while the remaining 60 percent will be completed by the deadline, Member of National Assembly (MNA) Malik Shakeel Awan said on Wednesday.

He said this during a visit to the site to inspect the construction work. He directed the officers concerned to accelerate the pace of work. The MNA said that earlier, the project’s completion date was Mar 31, which was being completed with Rs 430 million. “Both the tunnels on Murree Road under the railway bridge are being widened and will be made 65-feet-wide to ease traffic congestion at the square.” He said that the project would be completed within the shortest possible timeframe so that citizens could be provided relief. Shakeel Awan said that the project would help resolve traffic problems on one of the busiest squares of the town. After the construction of new tunnels on both sides, the square would become signal-free.

Pirwadhai Mor Flyover faces bottleneck

Rawalpindi Cantonment Board (RCB) has refused to shift water supply and sewerage lines, along the under-construction Pirwadhai Mor Flyover, at Peshawar Road, unless reimbursed for services.

Commissioner Imdadullah Bosal asked RCB to shift services along Pirwadhai Flyover, so that the construction company National Logistic Cell (NLC) could start construction on Peshawar Road.

The demand was made during a meeting held here at Commissioner Office with Commissioner Imdadullah Bosal in chair. The meeting was attended by Punjab Communication and Works, RCB, Sui Northern Gas Pipelines Ltd (SNGPL), Islamabad Electric Supply Company (Iesco) and NLC officials.

However, the RCB demanded Rs25 million from the provincial government as charges for shifting the utility services like water supply and sewerage lines.

RCB claimed that the main water supply line coming from Khanpur Dam at Pirwadhai Mor was constructed last year and it would be difficult to shift it.

According to officials working on the project, Pirwadhai Mor Underpass and Flyover Project will be completed in four months, in two phases. The total cost of the project is Rs1.447 billion.

In the first phase, the flyover will be constructed at Peshawar Road, on the side where the traffic is coming to Saddar from Peshawar.

In the second phase, the underpass will be constructed to connect I.J. Principal Road with Peshawar Road.

Divisional administration official told Dawn that the project started in haste and without proper planning and the shifting of utility services would delay the work. “If these issues had been resolved before the start of the project, then the unnecessary delay would have been avoided,” he said.

The official said that earlier, SNGPL main supply line of gas came in the way, when the construction company dug the ground for the foundation of the flyover.

The official added that the Communication and Works department made amendments in the master design, otherwise, the shifting of natural gas would have taken two months extra. He said that the design had been changed with the consent of the Punjab government.

Communication and Works department Superintendent Engineer Jamshaid Khan told Dawn that the provincial government asked RCB to redesign its drain, along the flyover at Pirwadhai Mor.

Jamshaid said that the water supply line and sewerage and the construction cost will not be paid by the provincial government but it would be constructed by RCB from their own funds as it was not part of the flyover.

“The provincial government already paid money for the shifting of services before the start of the construction work, October last year,” he said.

However, the RCB Additional Cantonment Executive Officer Shakeel Anwar Jappa told Dawn that the provincial government asked to shift the utility services along Pirwadhai Mor but the RCB sought charges from it for this purpose.

“We demanded Rs25 million from the provincial government for shifting of services,” he said and added that there were main water supply lines and sewerage lines along the main road and these were initially part of the flyover project.

Last time I visited Pakistan was in jan 12 and Liaqat Bagh signal was closed and just a u-turn was present. People could go straight to Moti Mahal. There started the real traffic jam.

For the stadium road I have heard the ninth ave will be extended and stadium road will be incorporated and they will build an intersection on murre road may be near Arid Agriculture University.

Naz Cinema has always been a nightmere

The best thing is to construct a few km long flyover from Naz Cinema to Committee Chowk underpass. it would hardly be more than a km long, but would solve a lot of traffic problems.

The pace of work is good. This Pirwadhai mor underpass is so important for the easy flow of traffic. I used to travel through this route when I was in Pakistan. There used to be trafficjams here every time.
