Lahore Transport Master Plan.

Government of the Punjab initiated a strong

commitment to alleviate traffic problems at
various arterials of Lahore. In this regard
developments such as Kalma Chowk Flyover &
Underpass, Muslim Town Flyover, Canal Road
widening from Mall Road to Doctor’s Hospital,
Metro Bus System (MBS) along Ferozepur Road,

Signal free Canal Road is main arterial of Lahore

City which is acting as back bone of
infrastructure. From Mall Road to Doctor’s
Hospital Canal Road is already widened i.e two
lanes to three lanes either side. After widening of
this section, traffic along the section is moving

Now Government of the Punjab has intended to

widen the Canal Road from two lanes to three


Thokar Niaz Baig to Doctor’s Hospital. It also

includes one U-Turn.


Mall Road to Harbanspura. This Package

includes three U-Turns and five pedestrian
bridges. Vertical Clearance of Shalamar
Underpass is also going to increase upto 5.1 m.


To construct three lanes either side underpass at

Chaubacha. This underpass is being proposed
with 5.1 m clearance.

Widening of Canal Bank Road And
Chaubucha Underpass

This PC-1 pertains to all three Packages

mentioned above.

Widening of Canal Road and construction of

Chaubacha Underpass will alleviate traffic jams,
noise & air pollution.
