A number of people, especially those with stakes in Fazaia Housing Scheme Phase I, Bahria Town, Khayaban-e-Amin, Lake City and NFC Phase II and other societies along the proposed route of Lahore Ring Road (LRR)’s southern loop, are in a state of confusion since they are unsure about the route and are worried about their properties.
With that in mind, I got in touch with the Lahore Ring Road Authority (LRRA) to find out their plans about the development in question. Amid other rumours, a major rumour currently flying about in the market is that the authority will change the proposed route, which is some 30.4 kilometres long. However, what I heard directly from the horse’s mouth, if you will, indicates that the rumour holds no water.
According to the LRRA officials I spoke to, the authority does not plan to change the route at all. This clearly means that the southern loop of Lahore Ring Road will still pass through Fazaia Housing Scheme Phase I and Bahria Town.
According to a news source, Punjab Chief Minister Mr Shahbaz Sharif has also approved the southern loop and has dropped all the proposals for building it along Hudiara Drain, which is further proof of the fact that the previous plan will most likely remain unchanged.
One of our team members visited LRRA’s office to get the official map of LRR’s southern loop, and I am sharing with you all the map that was provided to him by LRRA officials.
Please see the image below and read the description underneath:
Description: The route marked ‘Red’ is of major concern for the investors. According to an official of the Lahore Ring Road Authority (LRRA), the authority does not plan to change this route. However, it may change the route marked ‘Brown’.
If you zoom in on the image, you will see that the southern loop is passing through Bahria Town as well as Fazaia Housing Scheme Phase I.
That said, I would request you to stop believing in rumours and take informed investment decisions. If you have further queries in mind, please feel free to have a conversation with me in the comments section below.
