NHA to build link highway connecting LSM to Narang Mandi

ISLAMABAD: National Highway Authority (NHA) has planned to build a 73 kilometre link Highway connecting Lahore-Sialkot Motorway (LSM) to Narang Mandi in district Sheikhupura and Narowal.

According to the details, the NHA has intended to engage a consultant/engineering organization/firm to carry out detailed design and construction supervision of the four-lane link highway.

A pre-proposal conference will be held on May 17, at NHA auditorium headquarters Islamabad.

Lahore-Sialkot Motorway project would be developed on a build- operate-transfer basis at an estimated cost of Rs 45.4 bn. The contract has already been awarded to the Frontier Works Organisation (FWO).

The proposed motorway project would help link remote areas with big cities and reduce the distance between Sialkot and Lahore.

The mega project would not only ensure fast inter-city travel but also provide economic boom as well as create employment opportunities in the region.

The motorway would start from Sahowala- Sambrial and will end at Kala Shah Kaku via Daska, Gujranwala and Kamonki.

The project has a great commercial viability, which would be expanded to Kharian from Sambrial in the second phase.

It would be the busiest road in the country following the growing flow of traffic in the region. (APP)
