Buzdar approves Rs50b Rawalpindi Ring Road project

Punjab Chief Minister Sardar Usman Buzdar on Saturday approved the Rawalpindi Ring Road project which will be completed with a cost of Rs50 billion.

The provincial government will provide full support to the project, the CM said while adding that implementation on the determined timeline must not face any delay.

Approval in principle was also given to appoint transaction advisers for ten other projects in a meeting of the public-private partnership policy and monitoring board. The CM directed to minimize the processing time of the projects.

The provincial government will start development work on Sheikhupura-Gujranwala road in the coming days, Usman Buzdar said.
