Rawalpindi: Rawalpindi Development Authority (RDA) Chairman Tariq Mehmood Murtaza has announced the civic agency’s decision to commence with the construction work on the Rawalpindi Ring Road (RRR) project from March 2020 onwards – following the scheme’s PC-I approval, a news source reported.
He expressed his views on the matter during a meeting with office-bearers of the Rawalpindi Chamber of Commerce and Industry (RCCI). He said that the RDA would install a ‘Bab-i-Rawalpindi’ at the city’s entrance. He further said that a management cell was also being activated which will address problems faced by the citizens through a one-window operation.
Under the ‘Green Rawalpindi’ project, trees will be planted in the city and on GT Road, he added.
In response, RCCI President Saboor Malik said that the RRR project would contribute to the city’s economic growth. He added that the relocation of the cottage industry, grain market, furniture and marble would lower the traffic burden in the city.
