Rawalpindi is a Pakistani metropolitan and is considered to be one of the key cities in the country. The city has historic as well as strategic value. Islamabad, the Capital of Pakistan, was carved out from Rawalpindi and the city also hosts the general headquarters of Pakistan Army. Apart from this, Rawalpindi has the biggest wholesale market in the region situated in the densely populated area of Raja Bazar. However, in terms of development and mega projects, the city hasn’t been given its true share in the past. The only mega project of civic interest in Rawalpindi is the Rawalpindi – Islamabad metro bus service. Apart from this, there is no nameable mega infrastructure development that one can count when listing down the mega structures of the city. However, this is all set to change. The incumbent provincial government of Punjab has started working on a number of small and big projects of civic importance in the city. The Rawalpindi Ring Road is one such project. This project has been shelved for over 2 decades. However, this government is ready to open it and go the extra mile to ensure the completion of this project on a priority basis.
The Rawalpindi Ring Road is a megaproject that the city has been waiting for quite some time. The Rawalpindi Ring Road is an economic corridor stemming from south of Rawalpindi and goes on the city’s east and bisects Islamabad. According to the local district government, the RRR is set to be 65 KM long and will have 8 interchanges. These interchanges will be:
- N5 Radio Station ( Near Baanth Mor, Mandra)
- Chakbeli Interchange
- Adiyala Interchange
- Chakri Interchange
- M-2 Motorway Interchange (Murat)
- New Islamabad International Airport Interchange
- Hakla – DI Khan Road Interchange
- N-5 GT Road Interchange (Sangjani)
Apart from these strategically located interchanges, the Rawalpindi Ring Road will also have 8 industrial, recreational, educational, and residential hubs along the road. These purpose-built hubs will be the following:
- Logistical Hub: This logistical hub will be located at the start of the Rawalpindi Ring Road. The logistical hub will have a full-fledge Dry-port, Truck Terminal, Bus Terminal, and Rawalpindi – Islamabad’s biggest fruit and vegetable market.
- Industrial Estate: This industrial estate will be located at the Chakbeli Interchange of the Rawalpindi Ring Road. This hub will offer infrastructural development to a myriad of industries and corporations looking to set up their production lines and plants at this location. Also, a section of this industrial estate will be dedicated to warehouses where the industrialists and traders will be able to store their products for easy logistical support. The industrial estate will be adjoined by a mega health facility that will have many purpose-built clinics and hospitals for the locals and visitors.
- Residential Estate: This residential estate will be developed next to the industrial estate. According to the RDA and local government, the estate will be a mix of farmhouses and a normal residential housing scheme.
