The Punjab gov should launch a big project like sindh to build new roads.
In Lahore the roads next to the airport need some fixing.
Or are they already looking into this?

Done by QM:





That historical airstrip (Walton airstrip), will be gotten rid off, info by RMS Azam:

LDA (Lahore Development Authority) wants to turn Walton airstrip into a boulevard connecting Main Boulevard with Walton Road and DHA (Defence Housing Authority) via an overhead bridge, which will pass by the Bab-e-Pakistan Monument. The flying clubs want alternative land for an airstrip before they let go of Walton. Right now there is a lot of wrangling going on between the flying clubs, LDA and the CAA (Civil Aviation Authority).

February 23rd, 2009





Next Week's Project: Lahore Ring Road (LRR)

The photo below is looking over and into the foundation of the upcoming Mubarak Center, the tallest building in Pakistan. We were heading in to land and were on our approach run to the Walton airstrip. Note the cranes on the top left corner are completely submerged in the foundation. More interesting is how close the flight path to the runway is to the upcoming structure.



The pilots told us that there is some pressure to close the air club down. On the other hand, the Mubarak Center is a joint venture between the Abu Dhabi Group and the Government of Punjab. Below is a clip I took from Google earth . It shows just how close to the flight path the construction is.

What are they going to do about that house sitting on the edge of the hole from which the Mubarak Center will rise up? Looks ridiculous.

Hopefully they'll get rid of it! Not to forget that a flyover will also be built next to Mubarak Center:



So they'll have to get rid of the house and offer the family compensation. I'm sure they've already done something about it, as its such a gigantic project. Plus a foreign firm (the Abu Dhabi Group) is also involved in this project.
