Lahore: According to a post on Facebook on April 14, the Lahore Development Authority (LDA) has approved NLC’s offer for the much-anticipated construction of the Shahkam Chowk Flyover.
According to details shared by LDA Vice Chairman S M Imran, the construction of the Shahkam Chowk Flyover was estimated to cost PKR 2,877 million. The NLC, on the other hand, was awarded the contract after submitting a financial estimate of PKR 2,554 million.
Mr Imran claimed that the authority has saved up to PKR 300 million by approving this offer due to a transparent tendering process. The flyover mentioned above is one of five major construction projects set to begin in the provincial capital this month.
Construction of a flyover at Sheranwala Gate, an underpass at Ghulab Devi Hospital, additional lanes on the Lahore Bridge (Ferozepur Road), construction of five tunnels on The Mall, and easing traffic woes at Barkat Market (Garden Town) Y-junction are among the mega infrastructural projects still in the works for Lahore.
