The southern loop of the famed Lahore Ring Road which has been in development for a very long time is finally ready and will be opened to the public after the inauguration of December 22.
The 22.35 kilometers road begins from Kamahan and connects to Adda Plot (Raiwind) via the Gajumatta. The project has 15 subways for pedestrian and vehicle use. With the launch of the road, people will be able to commute through the north of the city to the south at a significantly reduced traveling time.
After the launch of the southern loop of Lahore Ring Road, the local authorities are setting their eyes on the section-3 of the southern loop which will connect Pakistan Medical Society with Bahria Town and Multan Road.
According to reports, the construction of this section will cost around RS. 8 billion. It will have three new bridges, two new interchanges and three underpasses for vehicles and pedestrians.
The southern loop of Lahore Ring Road is also equipped with an Intelligent Transportation System and CCTV cameras for security and monitoring of traffic.
The project was expected to complete in the summer of 2017 but it was delayed due land acquisition problems.
