Revised PC-I of Rawalpindi Ring Road project restores old alignment

RAWALPINDI: The divisional administration has claimed to have revised PC-I of the Rawalpindi Ring Road project and sent it to the Punjab government for approval.

According to the PC-I, old alignment of the road from Rawat to Thalian measuring 38 kilometer has been restored.

In a statement issued late on Tuesday night divisional administration spokesperson said the PC-I would likely be approved. She said the ring road would start from G.T. Road in Rawat to Thalian near motorway.

On the other hand, a senior official of the district administration, requesting not to be named, questioned how the government could start the project in the coming fiscal year when it had not included it in its annual development programme for 2021-22.
