Description:

The Kalma Chowk intersection is one of the busiest in Lahore, Pakistan. Two major roads, Ferozepur Road and Main Boulevard (Gulberg and Garden Town), cross this junction. The volume of traffic often reaches 393,000 vehicles per day. Long lines are common during peak traffic times, and a vehicle may have to wait for up to eight minutes.

Recently, the Metrobus (Lahore), a popular mode of transportation in Lahore, made further improvements at this junction necessary. The Punjab Government, considering these public difficulties, decided to construct an underpass from Gulberg to Garden Town including four, signal-free U-turns to improve traffic flow. By constructing the underpass and signal-free U-turns, more than 150,000 vehicles will benefit. The project was initiated on 11 December 2012 with a mobilization period of ten days. The actual date of commencement was 21 December 2012. In spite of inclement weather and several landslides due to rainfall, the project was completed in eighty days. Currently, it is the longest underpass in Pakistan with a full height of 5.1 meters (17 feet); it is strong enough to support heavy as well as light vehicles.


Height of underpass: Full height 5.1 meters
Barrel width: 15.3 meters and 12 meters (each)
Green planter: 3' Wide on either side of ramp
Central green planter: 5.2-meters
Commencement date: 11 December 2012
Completion date: 3 March 2013
Time for completion: 82 days
Project cost: Rs. 1746 million
Vehicles benefited per day: 150,000

Sharif on the occasion also directed the officers concerned to gear up the pace of work on Multan Road and complete the project at the earliest utilising all possible resources.

He said because of traffic mess at Kalma Chowk, motorists have to face enormous difficulties and precious time of commuters, including students and patients, was wasted. Quoting estimates, he said around 400,000 vehicles passed daily from Kalma Chowk which often created traffic problems there.

He said Kalma Chowk project design should be excellent while the flyover might be made attractive through horticulture.

Provision of the best traffic facilities to people was a priority for the Punjab government, he said, adding that completion of projects like Lahore Ring Road, Shalimar and Saggian interchange in a transparent manner was an examples in this respect.

Earlier, communication and works secretary and NESPAK engineers gave a detailed briefing to the meeting with regard to estimates and the flyover-underpass project. They said traffic diversions would be provided during the construction of flyover and underpass in order to save commuters from inconvenience.

Lahore Commissioner Nadeem Hasan Asif informed the meeting that work on widening of Bhatta Chowk had been started and would be complete soon.

Meanwhile, the commissioner approved five development schemes in the public health sector at Kasur, Sharaqpur and Lahore.

Under an approved scheme, a trauma centre and a residential complex would be constructed at Kasur at a cost of Rs75 million. A water supply scheme was also approved for the city.

Similarly, a tehsil complex would be constructed at Sharaqpur to house offices of various government departments.

The drain passing between the Services Hospital and the Punjab Institute of Mental Health would also be covered under the plan.

While Kalma Chowk flyover/underpass work started. They have uprooted one side of Main Boulevard Garden Town, in front of Barkat Market. I don't what it has to do with Kalma Chowk, but form Kalma Chowk till barkat market road is not touched yet. God knows what's going on! :whistling:
