Rawalpindi: After failing to secure financiers for the Rawalpindi Ring Road (RRR) project under the private-public partnership (PPP) model, the Punjab government has chosen to develop it under the Public Sector Development Programme (PSDP), according to a news source on November 15. The prime minister is slated to open the PKR 23 billion project next month.

The project’s final approval is expected at the Central Development Working Party (CDWP) meeting on November 22, according to sources. In addition, the government has started the land acquisition process for the project, for which PKR 6 billion has been set aside.

The same meeting will provide the necessary approvals for the Leh Expressway, which has already begun the land acquisition process. The Rawalpindi Development Authority, according to reports, has begun marking the area on IJP Road for the 16.5-kilometer expressway project.

The updated design concept for the project involves the excavation of the Leh storm drain to deepen it, lowering the overall land acquisition cost. The project’s Project Concept-1 (PC-1) plan calls for the demolition of 720 dwellings and the construction of trenches for the installation of a sewage water treatment facility. PM Khan is expected to launch the two big projects from Rawalpindi on Quaid-e-Azam Day next month.
