Can anyone else see what OMI posted?
makes no sense, zafar ali road is in the opposite direction!
@PIA777 ... Govt has proposed MBS route from Band road (west) to Zafar Ali road, Gulberg (center east). Total length is 8.24 km. And whole track will be built over Cantt drain. It is to be noted that covering of 2.1 km section of this drain is also in progress for last several months.



----------------------------

IMO, its just a waste of money! There is no need of MBS track on this section. Instead of MBS track, they should built an elevated expressway over the drain that will help reducing vehicles on Jail road and Gulberg side. While there are many other routes where MBS track can be built. Priorities must be those routes.

But there is Christian's graveyard at its starting point, so this map is not accurate :dunno:
This is not the actual map of that project designed by LDA/NESPAK etc. ... I marked this route to show the alignment of proposed MBS or expressway on this route. That expressway will probably start from the backside of Mega tower or EFU House on Jail road.

Is there any genuine need of this expressway ?
No idea but expressway will reduce the load of traffic in old city going towards GT road/motorway. All the traffic of Gulberg, Shadman, Ichhra, Chuburji, Multan road will use that expressway to go out of the city. Its quite a better idea to build expressway instead of metro bus on this route.

Lahore already got expressway (Ring road) . This project yet to be completed...

Instead of putting money on this so called expressway.. Put 2-4 more bus lines (more metro bus or train routes)
You can easily reduce this Mini bus or motor cycle Rikshaw mafia by 70% if this government really use their brain..

So WASA becomes WASC! Bad decision not to raise water charges. When the water will mukk, then people will have nothing to run to. Its a diminishing commodity, and they want to keep water free so it can be wasted freely.

In other news, what the falooda is elevated express way from Gulberg to Motorway?!

Elevated express way btw GULBERG and MOTORWAY is approved.

I couldn't understand whats the purpose of metro bus line on this route? This route has no such commercial activity. There are tons of other routes in Lahore where building MBS will be a success. Building expressway is relatively a better idea.
