Rawalpindi-Rawalpindi Ring Road would become a harbinger of development in the region, said Commissioner Rawalpindi Division, Liaquat Ali Chatta here.
He informed that the construction work of 38.3 km long Rawalpindi Ring Road project had been started which would be completed during one year. Rawalpindi Ring Road would have a total five interchanges at Banth, Chak Bali Khan, Adiala Road, Chakri Road and Thalian while industrial zones would be set up around the Ring Road.
The Ring Road is a very important public welfare project, the Commissioner said adding, the elements who were saying that Rawalpindi Ring Road project had been shelved would be disappointed. He said that the ring road project would provide market linkages to the economic zones and create alternate business opportunities to the business community.
The Commissioner said that RDA has a key role in the implementation of the development projects for Rawalpindi and the rapid progress of these projects.
The Ring Road project would help reduce traffic congestion on the city roads and facilitate the movement of the residents of the adjacent areas, he said adding, the Ring Road project is a new chapter of development for Rawalpindi city.
