Lahore: According to news reports, the Lahore Development Authority (LDA) has decided to reconstruct the Ghous-e-Azam Underpass Jail Road to make it signal-free and improve traffic flow to Jallo Morr. The authority has set aside PKR 760 million for the project, which will be finalized in a Provincial Working Party meeting later this month.
The decision was made due to the underpass’s strategic inadequacies, which resulted in a few deadly accidents. Except for the Ghous-e-Azam underpass, which is on the left, all of Canal Road’s underpasses are on the right side, according to the details.
The Punjab Chief Minister, Sardar Usman Buzdar, has ordered that the Jail Road underpass be remodeled to improve traffic flow and prevent future accidents as a result of the underpass’s placement. The land will be purchased for this purpose, and the underpass’s left lane will be converted to a signal-free U-turn. The project is also included in the budget’s annual development plans until 2021-22.
