Lahore: The Lahore Development Authority (LDA) has carried out a survey for the improvement and rehabilitation of roads in the city, a news source reported. The survey specifically considers the roads in Samanabad and Allama Iqbal Town.
The Additional Director General (ADG) Urban Planning Rana Tika Khan paid a visit to these areas. He verified the locations and estimates of the schemes. He visited the areas acting upon the instructions provided by LDA Director General Amna Imran Khan.
The ADG highlighted the need of prioritising developmental schemes in the context of local requirements. He said that the government should carry out developmental projects in the city for the sole purpose of facilitating the maximum number of people. He added that this is even more important, given that there are only limited resources available for this purpose.
