65.6 kilometer (km) long Ring Road would have six lanes on each side like the motorway, said Rawalpindi Development Authority (RDA) Chairman Tariq Murtaza, adding that service roads would be constructed along the main road while RDA would plant 0.15 million saplings on the entire route of the signal-free corridor.

He also said that the project would have interchanges at eight different locations while residential zones would be established along four interchanges. A hospital is also included in the plan for the project, which will be built near Chak Beli Interchange, while the planned amusement park would be constructed between Chakri and Morat interchanges.

In December, Prime Minister Imran Khan and Punjab Chief Minister Usman Buzdar will lay the foundation of the mega project.


  • Lets hope that it doesn’t get delayed this time because the previous governments have not been able to execute this project

  • This project was planned during pmln punjab in their last year, now after some slight changing they are announcing again as usual trying to get credit. Real game they will have to face in land acquisition, if previous govt did not do it. Let’s see how long it takes.

  • It has become a donkey carrot for Rawalpindi and Islamabad.I don’t think that this government has capacity to complete this project. It will be built like BRT Peshawar.

  • Since 2004 I am Listening about RRR and every year they change the Plan and I am not sure it will be inaugurated in December 2020.Lets hope for the best.
