Lahore: According to press reports, the Lahore Development Authority (LDA) has handed the Punjab government the Project Concept-1 (PC-1) of the Cavalry Ground Underpass and Flyover project for final approval. Following the Kareem Block and Samanabad Mor underpass projects, the PKR 2.85 billion project is the third road infrastructure project to be presented for final clearance this month.
According to the sources, National Engineering Services Pakistan created the project cost estimation and design (NESPAK). A full-height underpass would be built at Khalid Butt Chowk near Cavalry Ground, according to the proposed design. A single-way flyover will also be constructed from Ghoda Chowk to Defense Mor.
When the project is finished, vehicles coming from and going to Defence Mor and Cavalry Ground will have a signal-free corridor, saving commuting times. LDA Chief Engineer Mazhar Hussain Khan forwarded PC-1 to the province government after gaining design approval from Director General LDA Aziz Ahmed Tarar.
At the next Provincial Development Working Party (PDWP) meeting, the PC-1 is likely to be presented for approval. The Punjab government will fund the project through the Lahore Urban Infrastructure Development Sector.
