LAHORE: Caretaker Chief Minister Punjab Mohsin Naqvi has given a deadline, to complete the Samanabad Mor underpass project by April 15 and asked the LDA and line departments, to devise a plan to work round the clock to complete it before schedule.
All the available resources should be used for the speedy completion of this project. By increasing the number of machinery and labourers, the completion of the project should be ensured ahead of time and the speed of work on the project should be accelerated, the CM further said. Implementation of an effective traffic management plan should also be ensured to keep the traffic flowing during the work on the project, he added.
The Samanabad underpass will facilitate the daily movement of people from adjoining areas including Samanabad, Gulshan Ravi, Tauheed Park, Multan Road, Chauburji, Chowk Yateem Khana and other localities.

A deadline has been given to complete the re-modelling project of the underpass from Barkat Market to Ali Zeb road and Kalma Chowk underpass by February 15. The CM has directed that the contractor should complete the project as soon as possible so that the citizens can get convenience in their daily movements.
