The Cavalry Underpass in Lahore has been officially opened to traffic by Punjab Chief Minister Mohsin Naqvi, marking the completion of the project well ahead of its scheduled timeframe. Originally projected to take six months, the underpass was completed in a swift 2.5 months. This early completion has been lauded for its efficiency and cost-effectiveness, with a 15% reduction in overall costs.
The underpass is expected to benefit the residents of Gulberg and Defence, as it now allows the smooth passage of 200,000 vehicles daily. This development eliminates the need for stops at three previously existing signals, easing traffic congestion significantly. Additionally, the opening of the Ghora Chowk flyover on December 7 is anticipated to create a signal-free route from Gulberg Centre Point to Defence Mor Lahore, further enhancing traffic flow in the area.
The early opening of the Cavalry Underpass is a transformative development for Lahore’s infrastructure, especially for those traveling between Gulberg and Defence areas. The construction of the underpass has overhauled one of the busiest roads in Lahore, providing a signal-free passage made accessible to the public as of November 26, 2023. This project reflects a significant step forward in urban planning and traffic management, as it has eliminated major bottlenecks caused by the previously required stops at traffic signals.
Completing the underpass is part of a larger initiative to improve Lahore’s traffic conditions, including the upcoming inauguration of the Ghora Chowk flyover. These developments are expected to reduce traffic congestion and decrease travel times, lower vehicle operating costs, and reduce pollution levels due to fewer idling vehicles. The impact of such infrastructure projects extends beyond immediate convenience; they represent an investment in the city’s economic vitality and the quality of life of its residents.
