The development work on phase two of the Canal Road Expansion Project has started recently. The Lahore Development Authority commenced with Phase 1 of the expansion project in 2017. Phase two of the Canal Road Expansion project had been put on hold in the past for unknown reasons.
In the earlier phase, the development authority constructed Chaubucha Underpass, realigned Jail Road Underpass. And built several U-turns, installed rainwater chutes, and fixed several walkways. The road was expanded by six metres on each side. In the process, 1,300 trees had been cut off for the expansion of the Canal Road. In the project’s phase two, fencing of the canal, and construction of pedestrian bridges, is planned.
