Lahore: A team of National Accountability Bureau (NAB) officers recently paid a visit to the LDA City project site to inspect the pace of ongoing development work, a news source reported. This project is being developed by the Lahore Development Authority (LDA). In a related development, Zameen.com recently acquired the exclusive rights to market and sell this project’s inventory.

They also received project briefing from the LDA officials, who informed the NAB members that the civic agency had commenced with the preparations to link LDA City with Defence Road, Lahore Ring Road (LRR) and Ferozepur Road.
The 2.5-kilometre-long and 200ft-wide road is expected to be constructed in Mouoza Panju and it would provide direct access to LDA City Phase I Jinnah Sector from Defence Road, LRR, and Ferozepur Road following its completion. The road will be named ‘Chenab Road’.
