News sources said on December 2 that the Walled City Lahore Authority (WCLA) has started to repair and improve the Mall Road as part of the Dilkash Lahore project.
The PKR 487.7 million project will fix up the road from Charring-Cross to Old Tollinton Market and make it look better. In the first phase of the project, public gathering spaces, public seating areas, and electric lighting will be built, along with traditional activities. Billboards, directional signs, and historical plaques will also be put up in different places.

Kamran Lashari, the director general of WCLA, told the media that the project will make Lahore a much better place to visit and will bring more tourists to the city. He said that Mall Road has always been the centre of Lahore, and he said that this cannot be said enough. WCLA has decided to spend a lot of money on the project because of this.
It is important to say that the WCLA is in charge of keeping the city’s historic and culturally important buildings and monuments in good shape. The WCLA and the French government just signed a deal to restore the historic Lahore Fort to its former glory and protect sensitive places.
