Elahi orders work on Rawalpindi’s Ring Road, Expressway projects


Punjab Chief Minister Chaudhry Pervaiz Elahi on Monday directed the departments concerned to start working on Rawalpindi’s Ring Road and Leh Nullah Expressway projects at the earliest.

He was chairing a high-level meeting in Lahore convened to review development schemes of the garrison city.

The meeting was told earlier that the Leh Nullah Expressway project was estimated to have been completed at the cost of Rs110 billion. But now on the directives of the CM, the project would cost only Rs46 billion, it was informed.

The chief minister, on the occasion, directed that transparency and proper utilization of government funds be ensured during the construction of the Ring Road. “It should also be made sure that no inconvenience is caused to the people living in the vicinity of site of the project,” Chaudhry Pervaiz ordered.

He added that other roads would be expanded too to rid people of the city of traffic problems. “We will also discuss the proposal to build homes for the people who would be displaced due to work on these projects,” he informed.
