No change expected in proposed route of LRR’s southern loop

August 10, 2015 • News & Updates,Pakistan Real Estate

Lahore ring road southern loop

A number of people, especially those with stakes in Fazaia Housing Scheme Phase I, Bahria Town, Khayaban-e-Amin, Lake City and NFC Phase II and other societies along the proposed route of Lahore Ring Road (LRR)’s southern loop, are in a state of confusion since they are unsure about the route and are worried about their properties.

With that in mind, I got in touch with the Lahore Ring Road Authority (LRRA) to find out their plans about the development in question. Amid other rumours, a major rumour currently flying about in the market is that the authority will change the proposed route, which is some 30.4 kilometres long. However, what I heard directly from the horse’s mouth, if you will, indicates that the rumour holds no water.

According to the LRRA officials I spoke to, the authority does not plan to change the route at all. This clearly means that the southern loop of LRR will still pass through Fazaia Housing Scheme Phase I and Bahria Town.

According to a news source, Punjab Chief Minister Mr Shahbaz Sharif has also approved the southern loop and has dropped all the proposals for building it along Hudiara Drain, which is further proof of the fact that the previous plan will most likely remain unchanged.

One of our team members visited LRRA’s office to get the official map of LRR’s southern loop, and I am sharing with you all the map that was provided to him by LRRA officials.

Please see the image below and read the description underneath:

LRR1 (small

Description: The route marked ‘Red’ is of major concern for the investors. According to an official of the LRRA, the authority does not plan to change this route. However, it may change the route marked ‘Brown’.

Right click and select ‘Save Target As’ to download the image

If you zoom in on the image, you will see that the southern loop is passing through Bahria Town as well as Fazaia Housing Scheme Phase I.

That said, I would request you to stop believing in rumours and take informed investment decisions. If you have further queries in mind, please feel free to have a conversation with me in the comments section below.

    Salam,

    Can we get more accurate location of the Ring-Road, like I have a plot in Khayaba-e-Amin and need to know whether ring road will pass North of Canal or South of Canal.

    With either case, it will impact differently for me as my plot is on southern side of Canal, and quite touching the right road if it happens to be on South side.

    Most of dealers are confused due to this issue, and market is getting slower till the time it is clear.

    Regards,

      Wa alaiakumusslam,

      I am not really sure whether it will pass through the southern or northern side. However, you should keep in mind another important factor and that is: the right of way, which may also occupy some area of the society.

      I suggest you contact the management of the society and ask them about the status of your plot. I think the management will provide you better information.

    Aoa Zain sb,

    Yes this is absolutely true. There is no change to Old map and this is also approved by CM : source Dawn news

    Moreover Finance ministry allocated 6 billion rupees for the purpose of land purchase for LRR southern loop. City 42 published this news in today’s bulletin. Remaining funds will also be given after initial purchases.

    Once again thanks for keeping us informed on this vital improvement on LRR.

    Thanks,
    Shahzad

    Good work,

    Plz also share the detail of the areas which are really affected, since it Is no longer a secret anymore therefore plz share that info also.

     
    • Zain Nadeem Zain Nadeem says:

      Dear Rajab,

      Have you downloaded the map? If not, I suggest you do so because the areas that will most likely be affected can be seen in the map. Even then if you find anything ambiguous, please feel free to contact me.

    Dear Mr. Zain Nadeem.
    Your comments are very valuable for us and specially the peoples who are living outside the country.
    As you mentioned in one of your post owners should visit the Behria town to see any land mark by LRR authority near their property. currently I am out of country, so cannot visit and your support is required. I have a plot in Behria overseas extension B , block EE . can you share your expert opinion/observation that this block will affect by LRR or not.

    if any one has news regarding above mentioned subject he can share plz,

    Regards,

      Assalam o alaikum,

      Zahid Bhai,

      Many people have asked me to confirm the status of their plots. I cannot tell the status precisely, I can only provide a rough idea. A lady recently asked me about the status of her plot in Rafi Block. I tried to contact Bahria Town administration to get details, but they did not entertain my call and after a few transfers, may call was disconnected automatically.

    Dear Zain,

    Thanks for your info. As per Dawn old oute will go through Sui Gas Phase 2. Will it mean that Tulip Extension will be saved from ring road?

    Can you please comment? Please try to confirm from your good sources.

    Regads,

     
    • Zain Nadeem Zain Nadeem says:

      Assalam o alaikum,

      Ali Bhai,

      According to my source of information, a few plots in Tulip Extension will also be disturbed by the LRR. I suggest you contact Bahria Town to confirm the status of your plot. I also tried contact them, but to no avail.

    How will LRR passing through BT play out in long run. i.e. 3-5 year specially for sector F.

     
    • Zain Nadeem Zain Nadeem says:

      Assalam o alaikum,

      Sector F is unlikely to be affected by Bahria Town. I personally believe that the development of the LRR will have a positive impact on the blocks which will not be affected. But it also depends on interchanges. If the authorities concerned will build an interchange near Bahria Town, the residents of the society will get an easy access to other areas of Lahore and the price will most likely increase notably.

    Zain,
    Thanks for sharing valuable information but what is authority’s plan for brown part of the ring road. Are they planning next phase in near future and what are the difficulities with that. If you can share some information on that would be valuable.

    Can someone please put some light on Nargis block. What will be the impact of Nargis Block after Ring Road in completed as per Old Approved LRR Map. How good or bad is to have a house in Nargis Block. What property Guru has to say about. Do you see the prices going down or upward in Nargis Block after LRR old Map approval. Will Nargis Block a liviable place in terms of peace/ Security and Value.

     
    • Zain Nadeem Zain Nadeem says:

      Assalam o alaikum,

      Dear Hina,

      I have Bahria Town’s master plan available with me and I have roughly marked the map myself to see the impact of LRR on Bahria Town. According to my personal observation, Nargis Block will be affected by the LRR.

      I am stating it again that this is my personal observation which may be wrong. I suggest you contact the Bahria Town administration to get some details about the impact of LRR.

      I also contacted them to get some details, but to no avail. After a few transfers of my call, it was disconnected.

    Ring Road will pass along the horizontal line defined by Jinnah avenue(mentioned on bahria town map) in Sector E Rafi block, thats what Project map I got from nespak is telling. It will cross multan road at jhuggian, so ov. b extension is also going to be affected.

    • Zain Nadeem Zain Nadeem says:

      Assalam o alaikum,

      Dear Mr Akram,

      To the best of my knowledge, Lake City will not be affected adversely by the LRR. In fact, the LRR will impact the society in a positive way, as the authorities concerned have planned to build and interchange at Adda Plot on Raiwind Road.

      Regards,

    How come Zameen, Pakistan’s No.1 property portal has not yet gathered enough data to remove confusion prevailing in the market due to ring road. Prove your leadership and please contact authorities, solicit relevant data, compile and publish it to make life easier for thousands of your site visitors.

     
    • Zahid Rashid says:

      Dear Ahmad sb,

      Agreed with your comments, But I feel BT management is more responsible for this. They put their investors in a pan . people invested in BT and their stake is on risk, So BT management try to dilute the situation….
      Second i am out of country,therefore not able to visit BT office to listen their view .
      and what plan they have to accommodate the peoples. I tried on there UAN # but no one is attending.
      it is my suggestion please visit BT LHR office and ask them.

      Assalam o alaikum,

      We are here to provide our readers with the details they want. We have written this article after contacting the Lahore Ring Road Authority. Now, we are trying to reach Nespak to get further details. Sometimes, the authorities we contact have the issues of confidentiality, which is why they do not share everything with us until they make the information public.

      We understand that people are in state of confusion because of the LRR, but we are trying our best to update our readers with then latest developments.

      Regards and stay tuned!

  15. Shahzad says:

    @Dr Ijaz sb. Tipu plot is safe from ring road. The prices are on hike in this area already so don’t sell your plot if you get some cheap offers. This is bcoz even nishter block will face the effect of LRR due to being close to it (noise and pollution) and prices there already over 1 crore there. Tipu block have cheapest kanal plots which will definitely get a major increase in future after development of LRR and Possession.

    Rest ALLAH knows better.

      Salam Shahzad sahab,

      I have plot in BT sector E, Iqbal block plot # 74, which comes under the nursery area and not yet under bahria town possession, rummers are swinging that this area will be effected by ring road too, please share your knowledge whether it is coming under ring road or not and what is the situation says about my plot and what should I do?

       
      • Zain Nadeem Zain Nadeem says:

        Aoa,

        Malik Sahib,

        Your plots will probably come in the route according to the rough sketch of the route I have drawn on Bahria Town’s map available with me.

        It will be taken in the Right of Way or it will come close the LRR. If latter will be the case, you will be lucky to have your plot saved.

        Please note that this is just a rough idea based on my personal observation, which may prove also be proven wrong.

        Rest ALLAH know better.

    Dear Zameen Team,

    As all of you are aware that CM has signed the
    old map of Lahore Ring Road.
    Do you know that this will affect which blocks
    of Bahria Town?
    Some people are saying that this will affect
    Iqbal, Rafi & Tulip block only.
    Some people are saying that this will affect
    Golf view Residencial project of Bahria Town.

    Have all of you an idea that when the final
    markings from Bahria Town Management will come
    in order to clarify the wrost situation.

    Regards

     
    • Zain Nadeem Zain Nadeem says:

      Dear Usman Bhai,

      It is probable that all the mentioned blocks will be affected by the LRR. However, the final markings will better clarify the picture. Let’s just hope for the best.

      Could you please tell your plot number?

    Bhai no-one knws abt the exact blocks .
    I will post what i want to hear… i will save my block and bend LRR from someone else block… some are saving GVR north other are saving south. Bahria as usual is keeping its mouth shut.

    • Zain Nadeem Zain Nadeem says:

      I have had a conversation with a Fazaia official. According to the official, the government has not yet unveiled its plan about LRR’s development in Fazaia Housing Scheme Phase I. However, if the government will take over land in Fazaia, the plot owners will be compensated at DC rate.

    Today I went bahria alfalah office and met with Amjad Bhatti of town planning. He showed me ring road map which is passing through bahria town sector E. That map is same as marked by govt. Authorities.

    I was very surprised to see that bahria management know everything but still allowing people to built plazas and houses. I asked him why you are not stopping construction. He just replied……Malik sb ka order hai .

    Its just ridiculous. They are just testing peoples temperament

     
    • Zahid Rashid says:

      Dear Haider sb,
      Thanks for your info and appreciate your efforts. Agreed with you BT is unprincipled with their community/property owners. i am overseas Pakistani, and had tried my best to contact with Bahria Town Administration in order to get any authentic info ( by mail, PH etc.) but not receiving any response from BT administration.
      Their attitude is disappointing.

    Thank you so much for your effort to gain relevant info. It would be much more useful if u could ask LRR authority what part of Bahria exactly will be affected and will LRR Authority raze all houses in Tulip Extension. More specific would relieve people concern. You may try next time but so far very useful inf. Thnx

     
    • Zain Nadeem Zain Nadeem says:

      Assalam o alaikum,

      Dear Ali Bhai,

      Yes, Tulip Extension will be affected by the LRR. According to an estimate more than 150 houses will be affected. And you should also know that Bahria Town has the proposed map of the LRR. However, the developer is remaining silent, hoping that Mr Malik Riaz will intervene to change the route.

    As per my information Ring road will affect Northern part of Golf View Residencia, then it will have interchange alongside nargis block, very serious impact on Tulip Extension, initial numbers of Jinnah block, it will bisect Rafi and Iqbal block and then above 100 ft road of Overseas B extension all will be under Lahore ring road.

    For details please go to LRE facebook page, you will see the marking done on google map

    when the work on southern loop is going to start ?

  38. ali says:

    BT guys are very lazy. They are not doing anything. I will request all people to head together and meet with COAS in order to put pressure on BT to resolve the LRR issues and give possession of plots to Golf View Residencia, Green Valley and F Sector members!!.
    We cannot wait more for our hard earned money. This is very difficult to save money now days and how BT are playing with our money.
    I ‘m finally requesting you all to please think on this seriously!!
