Lahore Development Authority has established the first ever planned business hub of international standard, Finance and Trade Centre, Lahore, over an area of 1123 kanals, near Expo Centre, Johar Town.

The site is close to Lahore Canal, Motorway, Southern Bypass, Rai-Wind Road, Multan Road and other major intercity roads of the provincial metropolis for facilitating easy movement of business community from other cities. Specialized facilities for carrying out different types of major businesses have been provided in the area for making it a nucleus of commercial activities in the second largest city of Pakistan.

LDA has plans to link the FTC to LRR southern loop through a 16.6 Km 10 lane road running parallel to Canal Road. And to construct a 4.8Km Structure road leading to Khayaban-e-Jinnah.

Current Status
For the year 2016-17, LDA earmarked Rs. 390 mn for provision of water supply, sewrage system and improvement of road network in FTC. Currently they are working on adding a 4 lane road along the east edge of FTC.

It's alright. Not too bad for a start.
Hopefully, that means they're planning or developing some new high-rises there and want to keep the area in between those buildings fence-free and pedestrian friendly.
LDA has decided to build a wall/fence all around Expo Center, Finance and Trade Centre (FTC) Area and also to build security gates at the entry exits points : News

1. Didn't even realise there was a bid going to to refurbish the round about. I hope this is just one of many proposals.

2. It would have been perfectly fine if they avoided to tacky, colorful ornaments and just planted more trees in their place. Would have at least been on par with Liberty Chowk.

3. We should really take a cew from earlier monuments and just build something along the lines of the Old Kalma Chowk or Girja Chowk. Heck, if they had just built a single, GOOD statue of Muhammad Ali Johar, it would have made sense given the location.
Central Roundabout proposal
IMO very unimaginative, and thos statues look weird.
