Punjab Chief Minister Muhammad Shahbaz Sharif inaugurated the 1.3 kilometer long Beijing underpass in Lahore on Sunday evening.
It is the longest passageway in the country linking Dharampura to Mughalpura and has been completed at a cost of 3.6 billion rupees. Talking to the media, he termed the Beijing Under Pass as a masterpiece of construction.
He said that the underpass has been named ‘Beijing Bridge’ and it is a symbol of the Pak-China friendship.
Previously known as Chubacha Underpass, the project had been renamed to commemorate the contribution of China in Pakistan’s development projects.
