According to the specifics, there was a delay of almost two and a half months, and now construction has started again. The project’s cost will rise from PKR 3.1 billion to PKR 5.035 billion as a result of the changed design. It was revealed that adding three protected U-turns and building flyovers on either side of Akbar Chowk have raised the price.
According to reports, the U-turns will be built after passing Shoq Chowk and will be extended to Pindi Stop after passing the intersection with Model Town Link Road. By September, the project is supposed to be finished.
According to the news source, the project will reduce environmental difficulties, enhance traffic flow at the crossroads, give commuters commuting between Kot Lakhpat and Main Canal Road a hassle-free drive, and save them time and energy.
