- Double road to be constructed from LOS Ferozepur Road to Multan Road
- Demolition of illegal structure along LOS Nullah completed
The Lahore Development Authority (LDA) has completed operation against illegally raised properties to vacate government land from the grabbers along Samanabad Nullah to carry out construction of a dual carriage road from LOS Ferozepur Road to the Multan Road.
Hundreds of houses, shops and motor workshops had been constructed along both sides of the drain including LOS side and Poonch Colony side causing disturbance for the traffic and all these encroachments were demolished on Sunday.
The LDA director general gave task to the LDA land acquisition collector to acquire private land along this drain after payments to the genuine owners.
The LDA would complete this project with an estimated cost of Rs 1.84 billion to ease the traffic flow from the Ferozepur Road towards the Motorway M-2 and Lahore Ring Road via Multan Road-Gulshan-e-Ravi.
The contract of road construction had been given through open tender to a private construction company while LDA and National Engineering Services of Pakistan (NESPAK) will supervise the project.
Under the project, the existing more than four kilometres long road alongside the Samanabad Nullah to Gulshan-e-Ravi would be rehabilitated and widened up to 60 feet consisting three lane from each side. The project would be completed within next four months.
