About Ring Road Lahore
Lahore has grown into a mega-urban centre over the years and now hosts some massive housing projects in Pakistan, such as Bahria Town, Lake City, LDA Avenue, and Askari XI. The Lahore Development Authority (LDA) is on a mission to improve the city’s infrastructure with smooth highways, freeways, and Bus Rapid Transit Systems to provide an easy commute to the people living in the city and planning to move to the city in search of better employment or business opportunities.
Ring Road is one of the longest highways of Lahore, more than 85 km in length, and connecting a number of towns and housing societies. It was named Ring Road because it extends across the city in the shape of a ring. The road is linked to M-2 Motorway at one end, while the other connects with N-5 National Highway. Lahore Ring Road starts at Babu Sabu and stretches out straight all the way up to Niazi Chowk. Further, the road passes through and crosses some of the most significant arteries of Lahore such as Grand Trunk Road, Canal Bank Road, Barki Road, Ghazi Road, and Ferozpur Road, extending through interchanges of Harbanspura and Abdullah Gul Interchange. Also, some landmark locations in Lahore such as Allama Iqbal International Airport, DHA Phase 5 and DHA Phase 7, Sui Gas Society, Halloki Gardens, Bahria Town, and Thokar Niaz Baig are all connected via Lahore Ring Road.
Lahore Ring Road took nearly three years to complete after its initial plan was laid out in 2006. The expressway is sectioned into two loops, Northern and Southern. Both Southern and Northern Loops were initially proposed to cover 30.4 km each, but by the time it was constructed, Northern Loop turned out to be more in length, covering 40 km. The Northern Loop starts at DHA Phase 5 and goes all the way to Babu Sabu, whereas the Southern Loop connects Bahria Town, Lake City, and Gajju Matah to DHA Phase 5. Moreover, Lahore Ring Road is a six-lane freeway, accommodating almost 4.5 lakh vehicles daily.
Further, Lahore Ring Road’s Southern Loop consists of three interchanges and encircles the metropolis. Southern Loop I and II are operational, and about 22.4 km long, whereas the third, is in its final stages and is expected to be completed by the latter half of 2020. Southern Loop Interchange III (SL-III) will extend from Adda Plot on Raiwind Road to Maraka on Multan Road. SL-III will be a total of 8.5 km and connect popular housing schemes such as National Fertilizer Cooperative (NFC) Housing Society Phase-II Block A, Golf View Residencia, a couple of Bahria Town Blocks including Tulip Extension, Rafi, Iqbal Juniper, Overseas B Extension, and Talha Block. Other housing schemes which will benefit from the completion of the Southern Loop Ring Road project include DHA Lahore, Sui Gas Housing Society, Eden Park, State Life Housing Society, Eden Gardens, Valencia, Lake City, AWT Scheme, Fazaia Housing Scheme, and Bahria Town, Lahore.
