Rawalpindi: Local authorities have reported completing the land demarcation required for the route alignment of the Leh Expressway to mark properties and areas that are to be razed or constructed upon — a news source reported.
According to the details available, the demarcation includes areas falling between 30 to 12 feet inside private properties, and the residents have called for judicious marking as well as compensation for their properties.
The properties located behind Saddar City Road have complained that their properties had been razed for development work on a previous occasion as well, and now additional space had been taken out of their residences. These areas include Muhalla Seerat Ganj, Shaheen Pura, and Muhalla Baraf Khana.
The move is a major step towards beginning of development work on the Leh Expressway, which had been delayed due to the coronavirus pandemic. However, now the authorities have resumed laying the groundwork for development of the project.
