Chief Minister Punjab, Sardar Usman Buzdar, has approved the expansion of Lahore’s ring road in a meeting of the Lahore Ring Road Authority (LRRA) held earlier today.
Lahore Ring Road Southern Loop-III Project will be an 8 km long and six-lane wide road between Raiwind Road and Multan Road that will help ease traffic congestion in the provincial capital.
The Southern Loop-III will be completed within a year under a public-private partnership agreement between LRRA and National Logistics Cell (NLC) which will be signed next week.
Besides, CM Punjab has also directed LRRA to expedite the groundwork of Lahore Ring Road Southern Loop-IV and start its construction at the earliest. The Southern Loop-IV will connect Multan Road to Motorway M-3.
The 90 km long Lahore Ring Road project will conclude with the completion of Southern Loop-IV.
