Lahore- In a groundbreaking achievement that raises the bar for infrastructure progress, Chief Minister Mohsin Naqvi officially opened the Bedian Road Underpass in Lahore this Tuesday. The inauguration, graced by Corps Commander Lahore Lieutenant General Syed Amir Raza and attended by prominent figures like Provincial Minister Azfar Ali Nasir and Commissioner Lahore Muhammad Ali Randhawa, marked a significant moment in the city’s development.
Noteworthy attendees also included Ibrahim Murad, Information Secretary Daniyal Gilani, DC Rafia Haider, DGPHA Muhammad Tahir Watto, Chief Engineer LDA Asrar Saeed, MD WASA Ghafran Ahmed, and CTO Mustansar Feroze, with Senior Journalist Sohail Waraich lending added significance.
A standout feature of this project is its remarkable timeline. Initially projected to take six months, Chief Minister Mohsin Naqvi’s hands-on approach and consistent oversight led to the completion of the Bedian Road Underpass in just 70 days—a historic milestone for Pakistan’s infrastructure.
Spanning 940 meters at a total cost of Rs 2.10 billion, the Underpass is poised to substantially enhance traffic flow, accommodating approximately 120,000 vehicles daily. This achievement promises enduring relief for Bedian, Cantt, Defense, and nearby residents, offering a tangible solution to traffic snarls in the area.
