Rawalpindi: The Punjab government has shared the final alignment of the Rawalpindi Ring Road (RRR) project’s 65-kilometre route — with the venture being developed under a public-private partnership model, according to a proposal shared by the Planning and Development Board’s Public-Private Partnership Cell.
The project is being developed with a central median and shoulders in three segments:
- The first segment will start from N-5 to the DI Hakla six-lane dual carriageway with 3+3 lanes on both sides
- The second segment will start from DI Hakla to the M-1 two plus two (2+2) rigid pavements parallel to the already existing motorway
- The third segment starts from M-1 to the Sangjani six-lane dual carriageway with 3+3 lanes on both sides.
Moreover, preliminary design and technical studies have already been carried out for the segment-wise development of the RRR project, which shall be shared with the prospective bidders soon.
Reportedly, the government is seeking to reduce the travel time from Radio Pakistan to Sangjani through the GT Road with the construction of the RRR. The project is also expected to allow long-distance travellers to skip the urban area of the city and reduce vehicle operating costs.
