14th June 2023, Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif graced the inauguration ceremony of three crucial road projects in Islamabad. Addressing the event, the Prime Minister extended his appreciation to the National Logistics Corporation (NLC) for their remarkable contribution to national development.
7th Avenue Interchange: The Prime Minister officially unveiled the 7th Avenue interchange, a remarkable feat accomplished by the NLC. Located at the intersection of 7th Avenue, Srinagar Highway, Khayaban-e-Soharwardi, and Garden Avenue near Aabpara, this interchange promises to enhance traffic flow and alleviate congestion issues in the twin cities (Islamabad & Rawalpindi). With its advanced design and construction, it is expected to significantly reduce traffic jams, ensuring smoother commuting experiences for the citizens.
Renovation of Captain Karnal Sher Khan Shaheed Road: NLC successfully completed the extensive renovation of the Captain Karnal Sher Khan Shaheed Road project. This project encompasses the construction of two flyovers, two bridges, and seven culverts. The road's transformation will enhance connectivity, expedite transportation, and facilitate economic growth in the region.
Construction of 11th Avenue: Another noteworthy project inaugurated by Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif is the construction of 11th Avenue (package II). This avenue will aim to establish a direct link between E-11 and Srinagar Highway and mitigate potential traffic congestion at Sector E-11 and Khayaban-i-Iqbal in Islamabad.
Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif appreciated NLC for its invaluable role in national development and emphasized the significance of these road projects in enhancing transportation infrastructure, promoting economic growth, and improving the quality of life for the citizens.
