LDA Launches Operation to Clear 9 Major Roads of Encroachments

LAHORE: The Lahore Development Authority (LDA) has initiated a massive operation to make nine major roads in Lahore encroachment-free.

As part of the operation, several premises, including banks and food points, have been sealed in Johar Town.

Teams from the LDA, with the assistance of the police, also removed extended shades and floors and confiscated moveable items such as tables, chairs, boards, and tents.

Before the start of the anti-encroachment operation, letters were sent to the Traffic Engineering and Transport Planning Agency and the Lahore Parking Company to end on-street parking, which was prohibited by the Lahore High Court (LHC) due to its contribution to traffic congestion.

A writ petition was filed by a citizen in the LHC against the increase in smog, pollution, and other urban issues affecting public health.

The petitioner requested a solution under the constitution and asked the LHC to direct LDA and other civic agencies to take action.

The anti-encroachment operation was prompted by an order from the Lahore High Court in response to a petition seeking measures to control pollution and smog.

The first phase will focus on making Abdul Haq Road and Iqbal Town’s main boulevard model roads, and the remaining seven major roads will be cleared of obstacles in phase 2.

The action will include the demolition of encroachments, sealing of premises, disconnection of utility services, fines, and lodging of FIRs against those responsible for contributing to pollution and smog.

The nine roads that are set to become model roads/areas include Zahoor Elahi Road and Hali Road in Gulberg, main road starting from Wahdat Road in Mustafa Town, main road starting from Link Canal Road in Jubilee Town.

Other roads include main road starting from Jail Road in LDA Avenue-1, Kalma Chowk to Faisal Town in Garden Town, Khokhar Chowk to Hamdard Chowk in Township, Doctors Hospital to Expo center via Khokhar Chowk in Johar Town, and Bhekaywal Morr to Scheme Morr via Dubai Chowk in Allama Iqbal Town.
