ABOUT CANAL ROAD BAHAWALPUR
CanaI Road Bahawalpur is a 12 km long road that runs parallel to the Airport Road and enjoys proximity to Bahawalpur International Airport. It is a newly constructed road with greenbelts along the stretch. If you are coming from Farid Gate Road, aka the University Road, then Canal Road starts from the intersection point at Bahawalpur Road and proceeds all the way up to Quaid-e-Azam Solar Park Road.
Canal Road is a distant road, far away from the city but with the growing population and the dramatic increase in the demand of residential areas and gated societies, the city is expanding at a relatively fast pace. Another reason behind this expansion and development in the city is the influx of people from rural Punjab to cities like Bahawalpur for better opportunities. As a result of this rising demand, several new projects have been initiated on and near the road, offering a number of plots and other properties for sale. Khayaban E Ali Housing Society and Bahria Housing City are two such residential societies, and New Cantt Bahawalpur is a newly developing residential area located on Canal Road Bahawalpur.
