‘Physical survey of Leh Expressway under way’ | The Express Tribune


Deputy Commissioner Muhammad Ali has said a physical survey of the Leh Expressway was under way in the city.

During his visit to the Rawalpindi Chamber of Commerce and Industry (RCCI), he asked the traders to give their proposals about this vital government project. He said that representation would be given to the Chamber in the price control committee and called upon the RCCI to appoint its representative to apprise them about the development of the Ring road project.

RCCI President Nadeem Rauf briefed the deputy commissioner about the ongoing activities of the chamber and future programmes. He added that the Rawalpindi District Administration set up industrial and economic zones along the Ring Road. “If industrial zones are not established, the status of the Ring Road would be reduced to a single road”.

He said that Ring Road was an important expansion project of the city, and the business community considered it a game-changer.

Nadeem said that the city has become densely populated, and relocation of cottage industry, furniture, shoe market, bus/truck terminals and markets can only reduce the congestion in the city. He said that establishing industrial zones would boost local industry and SMEs, increase economic activity, and create employment opportunities.
