Lahore: The Chief Engineer at the Lahore Development Authority (LDA), Mr. Israr Saeed, has officially announced that this month inauguration of four significant construction projects in the city, are set to open to traffic within this month.
As per the provided information, Lahore’s four major construction initiatives are nearing completion, presenting a promising remedy for the city’s persistent smog issues. In the view of the Chief Engineer, the finalization of these four projects is poised to significantly mitigate the city’s air pollution levels. The LDA has issued strict directives to contractors, mandating the implementation of a two-hour water sprinkler system at all construction sites.
In addition, these projects include flyovers at Akbar Chowk and Shahdara, an underpass at Khalid Butt Chowk, and an underpass at Bedian Road. Giving specifics about the projects, he said that the flyover project at Akbar Chowk was expected to be finished in just six months, as opposed to the original 10-month estimate.
Together with the primary project, the Akbar Chowk flyover also involved remodeling Maulana Shaukat Ali Road and building ten U-turns—all of which were completed without removing a single tree. As per the contract that became effective on May 26, 2023, the project was originally scheduled for completion by March 25, 2024.
