Sixth Road flyover opened for traffic

Attention: open in a new window. PDFPrintE-mail

Rawalpindi: The newly constructed Sixth Road Flyover, on the pressure of the citizens, has been opened for vehicular traffic while its formal inauguration will be on January 9, 2013.

Earlier, the completion date of this project was fixed January 23, 2013 but the difficulties being faced by the citizens forced the authorities concerned to direct the contractor to accelerate the pace of work on the project and day and night construction work led to accomplishment of the project ahead of schedule.

Rawalpindi division commissioner had given green signal for opening the flyover for vehicular traffic by driving vehicle on the night between Thursday and Friday, but it could not become possible due to tug of war between Highway Department of Punjab and NLC.

The work on the flyover has been completed 100 per cent, but the tussle between the two departments blocked its inauguration but on Saturday evening, the flyover was opened for traffic.

Though the local administration wanted to wait for the return of PML-N MNA Hanif Abbasi from Saudi Arabia to inaugurate the flyover, the National Logistics Cell (NLC) managed its opening so that it could repair the service roads without any hindrance.
