The project to fix up the underpass is part of the Central Business District (CBD) boulevard project, which is meant to fix the city’s growing traffic problems. The project will cost PKR 4.2 billion and take 10 months to finish. The project will begin at the Kalma Chowk Underpass, separating it from the first underpass that leads to the Lahore Central Business District. When you turn from Centre Point toward Firdous Market, a new underpass will be built.
The following services will also be available to commuters and citizens:
- LED street lights are able to handle more than 250,000 vehicles per day.
- Underground sewerage and drainage on a two-lane road.
- At-grade development works on Gulberg Main Boulevard.
- CBD is an important part of the sustainable development projects in Lahore, which now include the city’s first downtown project.
