The 540-meter long two-lane dual carriageway underpass would facilitate traffic from the adjoining areas with special arrangements for water disposal.

The project would also benefit more than 91,000 vehicles daily and save fuel worth millions of rupees annually.

On the occasion, Punjab CM's Special Assistant on Information Dr Firdous Ashiq Awan warned Pakistan Democratic Movement (PDM) to not challenge the writ of the state. She said coronavirus does not differentiate between the government and the opposition and affects all equally.

Commenting on completion of the underpass, the special assistant said time and resources of people will be saved. "The PTI leader stressed that corruption was done in such projects in the past but the incumbent regime has saved Rs 13 crore by transparent tendering process," she maintained.
