Chief Minister Punjab, Chaudhary Pervaiz Elahi, has directed the government to immediately begin construction on the Nullah Lai Expressway and the Rawalpindi Ring Road.
The development of the Lai Expressway and Ring Road Rawalpindi, two of the city’s most desired projects, has taken yet another turn.
A meeting to review the Ring Road and Lai Expressway was presided over by CM Punjab. Other Punjab Government officials also attended this meeting.
The project was previously put on hold by the government due to factors like inadequate funding that were made public.
The budget for 2022, which was approved in June 2022, included funding for both of these projects, but no steps were taken to revamp these projects.
Another decision made at this meeting was to renovate Rawalpindi’s existing road. In addition, other roads will be built alongside these two megaprojects.
The goal of developing the Lai Expressway and Ring Road is to provide a convenient alternate route for city residents while also maintaining traffic flow.
