Lahore: According to news reports, the government has agreed to make Maulana Shaukat Ali Road signal-free, which will connect the Lahore Orange Line Metro Train (Multan Road) to the Ferozepur Road Metro Bus (Green Line).
The PKR 7 billion project would construct a 15-kilometer artery to minimize the 45-minute travel time between Kharak Stop and Qainchi. The Lahore Development Authority (LDA) has proposed a concept that would reduce travel time to 15 minutes. In addition, the ecosystem in the surrounding areas will be improved.
This project will include the construction of flyovers, underpasses, pedestrian bridges, protected U-turns, pedestrian walkways, and elevated pathways for motorcycles. The government could also be able to retake the service road from encroachers.
The Maulana Shaukat Ali Road runs from the Sabzazar Orange Line station’s Kharak Stop to the Karim Block signal in Allama Iqbal Town, going through Wahdat Road and then Canal Road. Through Shauq Chowk, Akbar Chowk, Model Town Link intersection, Pindi Stop, and Kot Lakhpat, the route continues toward Jinnah Hospital before linking to Ferozepur Road.
The route also connects Ferozepur Road to Allama Iqbal Town, BOR Society, Green Town, Faisal Town, Punjab University, and other localities. According to LDA Chief Engineer Mazhar Hussain Asif, there is a lot of traffic in these locations, which causes vehicles to be stuck in traffic jams for hours.
The chief engineer updated the media on the status of ongoing development projects while speaking with the press. The signal-free road from Thokar to Manga via Chuhng and Mohlanwal is being built, while work on the Gulab Devi Hospital Underpass, Sheranwala Gate, and Shahkam Chowk Flyover has been advanced. He also stated that land acquisition for the Gulab Devi underpass is not required because minor changes to the project’s design have been made.
