The government of Punjab has approved a mega development project in the capital city to construct a signal free corridor from Gulberg area to Lahore-Islamabad Motorway.
The project, with estimated cost Rs61 billion, will help reducing traffic congestions in Lahore where population continues to grow. It will be spearheaded by the Lahore Development Authority (LDA).
The development work on the 10.77 kilometer-long signal-free road is expected to be kicked off this year and it will be used by around 73,000 vehicles in single day.
The corridor is consisted of three sections with stretch-A covering 4.28kms, B 2.13kms and C 4.36kms, according to Zameen.com.
The stretch A will start from Babu Sabu to Multan Road while the ending point of the second part wil be LOS Road. The stretch-C will connect Ferozepur Road to Main Boulevard Gulberg.
A report released by LDA said that the signal-free corridor would connect Main Boulevard, Canal Park, Shadman, Shama Chowk, Chaudhry Colony, Toheed Park Bridge, Gulshan Ravi, Moon Market and Bund Road with the Babu Sabu Toll Plaza at the Lahore-Islamabad Motorway, it added.
