The revised suggested design now incorporates the inclusion of a barrel in the underpass that connects Wahdat Road to the canal and Bhekewal Mor. According to the revised plan, the bank will be purchased an additional three kanal of land, raising the total cost of the project to PKR 2.70 billion.

According to reports, the suggested design includes two options for the Kareem Block project. The first option is to construct an underpass, which will turn the crossroads into a signal-free route, allowing traffic from Multan Road to continue on to Bhekewal Road without interruption.

The second option is to construct a three-legged flyover that will allow traffic to continue uninterrupted from Multan Road to Canal Road and Bhekewal Mor. In addition, LDA Chief Engineer Mazhar Hussain Khan has handed the government the final Project Concept-1 (PC-1) for clearance.
