According to sources, the length of the LEH Expressway project has been decreased from 37 kilometres to 20 kilometres under a new design. Instead of the Sawan River, the project will begin at the Jhanda Chichi Nullah Leh bridge near Ammar Chowk and extend to IJP Road in Islamabad, all while being completely signal-free and with service roads.

According to the current plan, no more land would be purchased for the Leh Expressway than what has already been set aside.

According to the sources, a crucial conference of all stakeholders has been called for next week to hammer out a land acquisition strategy.
