To expedite the construction work on the Rawalpindi Ring Road (RRP) Project, the Caretaker Chief Minister of Punjab, Mohsin Naqvi, conducted a late-night visit to the project site on Saturday. During his visit, he urged the Commissioner of Rawalpindi Division and officials from the Federal Works Organization (FWO) to accelerate construction efforts for the earlier completion of this mega infrastructure project.
Accompanied by caretaker provincial health minister Dr Jamal Nasir and senior and junior officers from the district government, including Commissioner Rawalpindi Division Liaquat Ali Chattha, CM Mohsin Naqvi closely inspected various sections of the Rawalpindi Ring Road Project.
Progress on the Rawalpindi Ring Road Project
Expressing his concern over the sluggish progress of earthwork, especially the work being done by Nespak, Chief Minister Mohsin Naqvi directed the concerned authorities to ramp up the pace of construction immediately. He also instructed Commissioner Rawalpindi Division to furnish a comprehensive and detailed report to the CM Office regarding the project’s status.
“I will personally oversee the construction work on the Rawalpindi Ring Road Project,” Mohsin Naqvi declared, emphasising that no negligence or sluggishness on the part of any department would be tolerated.
During his visit, CM Mohsin Naqvi made an unscheduled visit to the FWO Camp Office, where FWO officers briefed him about the ongoing earthwork. It was revealed during the briefing that the Rawalpindi Ring Road, stretching 38.3 kilometres in length, will be equipped with six lanes, significantly boosting the transportation infrastructure in the region.
In addition to his visit to the construction site, Caretaker CM Mohsin Naqvi paid a visit to Benazir Bhutto Hospital (BBH) alongside Dr. Jamal Nasir, the provincial health minister. The CM took the opportunity to inspect various departments of BBH and inquired about the health and well-being of patients admitted to the hospital.
To ensure the safety and security of CM Mohsin Naqvi during his visit, Rawalpindi police, under the command of City Police Officer Syed Khalid Mehmood Hamdani, made stringent security arrangements, maintaining a vigilant watch throughout the visit.
The Ring Road Project in Rawalpindi is a significant infrastructure development expected to enhance connectivity and facilitate traffic flow in the region. CM Mohsin Naqvi’s proactive involvement in overseeing its progress demonstrates the government’s commitment to the timely and efficient completion of this vital project, which holds great promise for the citizens of Punjab.
