Work on Rehmanabad-Sixth Road flyover yet to kick off
Work on Rehmanabad-Sixth Road flyover yet to kick off

Preliminary report of the project has been forwarded



to the Punjab PSDP for approval, says NLC engineer


The Punjab government, which made tall claims of constructing another flyover from Rehmanabad to Sixth Road, has so far failed to materialise it into reality despite passage of more than six months.
It merits mentioning here that Punjab Chief Minister Mian Shahbaz Sharif, while inaugurating the flyover from Chandni Chowk to Rehmanabad in March this year, had pledged to give the people of Rawalpindi another flyover from Rehmanabad to Sixth Road in next three months. However more than six months have elapsed but the tall claims have not been transformed into reality.

Moreover, according to official sources, the Punjab government has also not made any allocation of funds in the budget for this mega uplift scheme in Rawalpindi. Instead of working on this project, the Punjab chief minister paid his attention in implementing schemes of expansion of Peshawar Road and construction of underpass at Pirwadhai Morr in March this year. Sizeable funds were also allocated for these two schemes of high nature, but amount for much trumpeted flyover from Rehmanabad to Sixth Road not provided in the annual budget by the Punjab government.
According to sources, the project of flyover would be executed by National Logistic Cell and not by RDA. NLC had done work on flyover from Chandni Chowk to Rehmanabad in period of three months. Due to non-implementation of mega project of flyover, problem of traffic congestion occurs from Rehmanabad to Faizabad Chowk during office hours and school and college timings.
When this correspondent tried to approach the officials of city district government, Rawalpindi, including District Coordination Officer, Captain ® Saqib Zafar, he was not available for comments.
However, NLC Engineer Naveed Ashraf dealing with the project informed that the preliminary report of the project has been forwarded to the PSDP, Punjab for approval. In this connection, a meeting was convened today (Tuesday) however; it was postponed due to some reasons.

He said that an amount of Rs1,042 million would be spent on the project, which would be completed in 130 days from the time of inauguration of work on it. However, he did not disclose the exact date as when the construction work on the project will kick off. “It depends upon the approval of the project by PSDP. If the project is approved then work on its feasibility and study, designing would be done and it takes at least two to three months,” he added.
