this is just ridiculous.. only simple design would have done the same purpose..look at the right flyover along the metro bus lane, why is that not coming straight over the bus parking? and why not under-pass? this what happens when u rush things, they shouldve had a master plan before the built metro bus.
1) Curved underpass would be more dangerous.this is just ridiculous.. only simple design would have done the same purpose..look at the right flyover along the metro bus lane, why is that not coming straight over the bus parking? and why not under-pass? this what happens when u rush things, they shouldve had a master plan before the built metro bus.
G.T. Road caters to a mix of local and heavy intercity traffic, leading to congestion and increased travel time. Shahdarah Junction is often choked, while railway crossing at Imamia Colony creates additional delays. Intercity traffic arriving from the north via GT Road often takes a detour at Kala Shah Kaku to enter Lahore through ThokarNiazBaig because of this congestion. A grade-separated expressway is expected to ease traffic congestion, and reduce stress of heavy traffic on the route.
This project was part of the Master Plan (2001-2010) developed by NESPAK in 2002. It has also been recommended in the Lahore Urban Transport Master Plan (LUTMP) 2010-30, prepared by Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA) in collaboration with The Urban Unit, P&D Department, GoPb in 2011.
The proposed project will affect the following:
traffic flow from Lahore city to Gujranwala.
traffic bottleneck at railway line crossing will be removed;
approach for Metro Bus system;
choke at Shahdara Junction.
The main proposed features of the project are as below:
Right of way (ROW) .......... 200 ft.
No. of lanes .............. 3-lane dual carriageway flyover along with 2-lane MBS elevated corridor
Length ........... 10 km
Service road .......... 2x40 feet wide
Walkways ............. 2x6 feet wide
Parking .......... 2x15 feet wide
Street lights .............. LEDs
Average daily traffic (ADT) ............... 115,000 vehicles per day (VPD)
