Shahdara Flyover Project Nearing Completion, to Open Soon
During a recent inspection visit to the Shahdara flyover project on Monday, Lahore Development Authority (LDA) Director General Muhammad Ali Randhawa expressed his satisfaction with the project’s progress and reaffirmed its imminent opening for traffic. This development aligns with the directives of Chief Minister Punjab, who has prioritized addressing the longstanding traffic woes at the city’s main entrance and exit.
DG Randhawa emphasized the importance of expediting horticulture works, directing the Parks and Horticulture Authority (PHA) Lahore to accelerate their efforts. He underscored the significance of the Shahdara flyover project in alleviating traffic congestion, reiterating its alignment with the Chief Minister’s vision.
LDA Chief Engineer Israr Saeed, along with the project contractor and director, provided DG Randhawa with a detailed briefing on the project’s status. They informed him that around-the-clock finishing work is underway on both bridges of the Shahdara flyover. The asphalt work on the ramps of Flyover II was scheduled for completion on the same day, and the installation of electric poles was progressing steadily. Lane marking work was also set to commence within the next 24 hours.
DG Randhawa’s visit extended to the ongoing controlled Access Corridor project on Bund Road. There, he received a comprehensive briefing on the project’s progress from the LDA Chief Engineer, the contractor, and the project team. He commended the team’s dedication and expressed confidence in the timely completion of the project.
The Shahdara flyover project is expected to significantly improve traffic flow in Lahore, particularly at the city’s main entrance and exit points. Its completion will bring much-needed relief to commuters and contribute to a more efficient and streamlined transportation system. The project’s progress under the supervision of the LDA and the commitment of the project team is commendable, and its opening for traffic is eagerly anticipated by the citizens of Lahore.
