let me tell u wot i see by myself and hear from pp of lahore. i don't know wot's cooking inside govt. offices and wot they are planning for.
1- Lahore Ring Road Project (LRR)
Don't have any update about it yet i dosen't come in my daily route
2- Bridge from Thokar Niaz Baig to Bahria Town
Completion work of Thokar Niaz Baig Brigde has been starting again.
this was the first move the new punjab govt made after it came into power, even before Shahbaz Sharif took charge as PM. they forcefully removed all encroachments by petrol and CNG pumps and start working on day and night bases. as i can guess 60% of the work has been completed. (i'll try to upload pics for u if i could)
3- Carpeting of MM-ALAM road
Still Pending don't have any updates either
4- Widening and carpeting of Lahore Canal Road (LCR)
Canal has become a complete bottle neck; especially campus area is too narrow and at peak times traffic goes bumper to bumper and long lines. Road condition is getting pathetic day by day specially from canal view to Doctor's Hospital it's so bumpy that u don't wana come their again. But widening is under consideration I think they are just waiting for the completion of thokar niaz baig bridge bcs after that It will become a real express way.
Some new projects.
Carpeting and Widening of M Shokat Ali Road that is linking Canal (Jinnah Hospital) to Kot Lakhpat it's a great project and more than 80% is completed they have removed all encroachments and made it 3 lanes along with service rd at both sides and Footpath just like Jail Road. Thumbs Up
Under Pass / Overhead Bridge on Canal at Mughal pura
started 1 months ago should be completed in a couple of months
one of the most important road of Lahore is in pathetic condition rumors are there that soon the work gonna start on it but not sure when but one thing is sure that its on the hit list now.
Shahbaz Sharif is a great leader. But everything is going slowly because of 2 things
A lot of political leg pulling of PPP, Zardari and Mr. Governer himself. They want to destabilize Nawaz Govt in Punjab.
Current economic condition of Pakistan. Recession has made everything limited so development work is also getting effected because budget is limited.
I hope this info would be helpful for u. J and u can picture something in ur mind about latest Lahore. I'll try to post more detail whenever I could & u r welcome for more questions J
