Rawalpindi, Pakistan – The Punjab caretaker government has completed arrangements for constructing an overhead bridge along the Rawalpindi Ring Road across the main railway track connecting Rawalpindi and Lahore.
A senior official of the local administration stated that Pakistan Railways has issued a demand notice for granting a No-Objection Certificate (NOC) regarding the building of a railway bridge near Kaliam Awan on the Ring Road route.
Per regulations, Pakistan Railways will receive reimbursement from the local authorities for the NOC and additional departmental expenses, the official added. He also said an estimate of the bridge’s cost would be provided later.
Furthermore, the official announced plans to begin shifting the main gas supply line, with Sui Northern Gas Pipelines Limited (SNGPL) soon releasing a demand notice in this regard.
The 38.3-kilometer Ring Road project will have five interchanges at Thalian, Chak Beli Khan, Adiala Road, Chakri Road and Banth. It will also feature 21 minor underpasses, five flyovers, and the railway bridge. Land acquisition will continue until the final 26 kilometers of the route are constructed.
Last week, Punjab’s acting chief minister visited the Ring Road site and directed Frontier Work Organization (FWO) and Rawalpindi Commissioner officials to expedite project completion.
