‘Construction work to start next month’

RAWALPINDI - Construction work on Mareer Chowk Tunnel project is going to be started next month and the project would help resolve the traffic congestion problem at the busiest chowk of the town.
The project’s estimated cost would be over Rs 352 million. After construction of new tunnels on the both sides of the Mareer chowk Railway-overhead bridge the chowk ould be a signal free chowk.
Earlier, the PC-I of the project was sent to the government for final approval and grant for the project and now the grant in this regard has been released by the Punjab government.
According to spokesman of city district government, No Objection Certificate (NOC) in this respect has also been obtained from the railway department.
Earlier a proposal in this regard was presented to the CM requesting that the project should be started as there is huge traffic load at Mareer Chowk and the traffic mess at the intersection creates problems for the citizens.
It was also mentioned that due to the traffic congestion, the motorists have to wait 10 to 30 minutes normally besides long lines of vehicles are witnessed there.
In order to provide relief to the citizens and for the resolution of traffic problems Chief Minister Punjab Muhammad Shahbaz Sharif had given approval of the project and now a grant for the project has also been released.
The Mareer Chowk Tunnel project will resolve the traffic congestion problem.
City District Government sources told that construction work on mega projects of Rawalpindi city, Sixth Road Flyover, Peerwadhai Road Flyover and underpass projects would also be started soon.
The Commissioner Rawalpindi Division while chairing a meeting held here recently directed the departments concerned that solid steps should be taken to shift the utility services from the proposed sites of the projects so that the construction work could be started soon.
The Sixth Road flyover and Peerwadhai Road Flyover projects are good and would help improve the traffic flow on Benazir Bhutto road and Peshawar Road.
Online adds: The citizens and traders of the city have demanded a flyover on Sixth Road to ease the traffic load on the busiest Benazir Bhutto Road.
The stop timing on Sixth Road traffic signal are very long, as the people have to wait long there, which does not only waste their time but also irk the citizens.
The people said that the flyover on the road at the point of Sixth Road became imperative as it the four way traffic on the road impedes the smooth flow of traffic due to which people especially students often get late form offices and schools.
The traders said that CM Punjab promised to construct flyover at Sixth Road, which was not fulfilled yet. They appreciated that Punjab government built a flyover on Chandni Chowk that helped to resolve traffic problem on the busiest juncture of the city to some extent but the traffic blockage at 6th Road waste the precious time of the people.
The people asked CM to launch the construction work of flyover on 6th Road like Chandni Chowk at earliest to get rid of traffic jams on this important point of the city as most of educational institutes and offices are located in the area.
