Divisional Commissioner Noorul Amin Mengal on Tuesday said a proposal has been drafted to make the Rawalpindi portion of Peshawar Road – from Koral Chowk to Motorway Chowk – signal free and efforts are being made to include this project in the Annual Development Programme 2022-23.
He said this during a meeting held to review the proposed project. The meeting was attended by the director (development and planning) and officers concerned of the Punjab Highway Department.
The commissioner said the cost of the project is Rs10 billion and construction of one flyover and four underpasses is included in it. “The flyover will be constructed at Ammar Chowk, and four underpasses at GPO Chowk, GHQ Chowk, Qasim Market and Military Hospital Chowk,” he said.
The commissioner said that the master plan and design of the project has been prepared and it will reduce travel time between Koral Chowk and Motorway Chowk from one hour to 10 minutes.
