Two Major Components of Rawalpindi Ring Road

However, the ancillary works include installation of traffic surveillance, construction of operation and maintenance camps facilities, roadside service facilities, and communication systems.

Major Phases Of Rawalpindi Ring Road


The project has had different phases since its announcement in 2008. All these phases are discussed below.

Rawalpindi Ring Road Phase 1


In 2008, a new feasibility study was done by the Parvez Elahi government in Punjab. It was planned to construct the ring road from Channi Sher Alam to Fateh Jhang next to the New Islamabad Airport.

The proposed length of this road was 75km, and the total amount of the whole project was estimated to be Rs 74 billion. However, the Rawalpindi Development Authority (RDA) made some changes to the map and reduced the total length to almost 54km.

Rawalpindi Ring Road Phase 2


In this phase (2010), the project was estimated to cost Rs 60 billion. Its total length was proposed to be 70km. However, the authorities explored some ways to cut down the project’s total cost. One way that was proposed to reduce the total cost of the project was by reducing the length or width of the road. 

The public representatives complained that cutting down the length of the road might deprive their area and residents. After discussing all these issues, it was decided to decrease the width from 800ft to 400ft.

Rawalpindi Ring Road Phase 3 (Current Phase)


The Executive Committee of the National Economic Council (ECNEC) in December 2021 approved the Rawalpindi Ring Road project. According to the meeting of (ECNEC) chaired by the Advisor to Finance and Revenue, the project was approved, including the construction of the main carriageway from Baanth (N-5) to Thallian (M-2).

The total cost is estimated to be Rs 23.6 billion on the condition that the Planning Commission’s consent will be taken and the Axle Load Management regime will be included in the project. 

The total length of the Rawalpindi Ring Road approved under the current government is 38.3 km. The ring road will be constructed having six lanes. The ring road route will start from National Highway (N-5) at Baanth (Rawalpindi district) and will cross via Chakbeli Road, Adyala Road, Chakri Road, and end at Motorway M-2 at Thallian Interchange.

Hurdles in the Current Phase of Ring Road Rawalpindi


Some allegations have recently been revealed that the revision of the Ring Road plan under the current government was made only to benefit some individuals and private entities. The changes in the alignment increased the project cost to Rs25 billion. According to Anti-Corruption Establishment (ACE) investigations, it was revealed that more than Rs130 billion were obtained in property deals since the project was started in 2017.

The authorities have reported that builders and property tycoons have received about 64,000 Kanal of land inside the constraints of the Rawalpindi/ Attock Circle, Paswal Zigzag, GT Road, and Islamabad Margalla Avenue.

According to the investigators, the new road links that have been made on the map of Rawalpindi Ring Road benefit many politically associated people. The politicians involved in these ill practices belong to almost all of the major political parties in Pakistan. Almost 14,601 Kanal have been procured by these politicians near Ring Road Rawalpindi.

Benefits of Rawalpindi Ring Road


As known, governments plan and develop every project for the benefit of the public. Therefore, the Government of Punjab has designed Rawalpindi Ring Road keeping in mind its different benefits, and they are explained below:

Connectivity

Ring Road Rawalpindi will be the main connectivity source of the twin cities. The master plan will connect various integral points of the city. The Radio Pakistan interchange of the ring road is located a few minutes away from Rawalpindi Saddar. So, it will allow the residents of this area to drive between the twin cities more easily than ever before.

Another significant benefit of the ring road is the easy accessibility of the New Islamabad International Airport. Moreover, places such as DHA, Bahria Town, and Rawat can also easily access the airport. 

Economic Corridor

Rawalpindi Ring Road will also play the role of an economic corridor in the country’s economy. It will reduce the traffic burden over the N-5 national highway, and the trucks loaded for trade activities can quickly reach their destinations. By becoming an economic corridor, the ring road will help faster transportation and save energy, time, and cost.

Urbanization 

Rawalpindi Ring Road will lead to the urbanization of the city. The master plan will link different rural and less developed areas of the city and urbanize these areas to flourish to their full potential, like the areas surrounding the Motorway, Chakri side, Sangjani, and some areas of Rawat. The Ring Road Rawalpindi will also help boost the upcoming and under-construction residential projects in the twin cities.
