*CM inaugurates Walton Flyover

Walton Flyover project has been completed within a short period of two months while a high standard and transparency have also been maintained, said Punjab Chief Minister Muhammad Shahbaz Sharif while talking to journalists after inaugurating the Walton Flyover on Sunday. Provincial assembly members Ramzan Siddique Bhatti, Mian Naseer, chief secretary, Lahore Development Authority Vice Chairman Khawaja Ahmed Hasaan, Planning and Development chairman, NESPAK chairman, Pakistan Muslim League-N office-bearers and officers concerned were also present. LDA Director General Ahad Khan Cheema gave a briefing to the chief minister on the Walton Flyover project.

The chief minister said that the first phase of the public welfare project of making Ferozpur Road signal-free from Walton to Ferozepur Road has been completed with the construction of the flyover while work is in progress round the clock on the second phase of the project. He said that this project is scheduled to be completed in July but the way the work is being carried out expeditiously, it is hoped that it will be completed in June. He said that the completion of the project will not only save time of the people and streamline the flow of traffic but resources will also be saved as Ferozepur Road will become signal-free. He said that the project will also facilitate doctors, nurses, paramedical staff and patients going to the General Hospital and Children Hospital. He said that completion of 872 metre long Walton Flyover costing Rs 700 million within 62 days is the result of the best coordination between political leadership and the agencies working on the project.

Shahbaz Sharif said that he has always believed that time is wealth and should not be wasted. He said that every moment of the nation is precious and the projects of public importance have to be completed with a national spirit. He said that energy projects will also be executed at the maximum speed. He said that completion of Walton Flyover project in a very short period is reflective of the same passion and determination of the Punjab government. He said that the flyover has been constructed within only 62 days which is a result of the blessings of Allah Almighty. He said that the first phase of the project has been completed while its second phase will be finished by the month of June. He said that the institutions concerned have worked as a team for the execution of the project. He said that the PML-N government had completed the Kalma Chowk project in four months during its previous tenure while a splendid project like metro bus was opened for the benefit of the people within only eleven months. He said that LDA DG Ahad Cheema is like a younger brother to him and is very honest and hardworking officer and that is why he has been awarded Tamgha-e-Imtiaz by the government. He said that credit for quality and early completion of the Walton Flyover goes to assembly members Ramzan Siddique Bhatti and Mian Naseer, LDA Vice Chairman Khawaja Ahmad Hasaan, departments concerned, LDA DG, contractors, NESPAK chairman and other officers who worked day and night for the completion of the project.


Shahbaz Sharif said that attack on senior journalist Hamid Mir is tragic and highly condemnable. He prayed for early recovery of Hamid Mir so that he could take up his journalistic responsibilities again. He said that attack on Hamid Mir is an attack on freedom of the press. He said that the federal government will conduct inquiry into the incident and ensure punishment to the culprits. He said that the elements involved in this heinous act will soon be apprehended and brought to justice so that no one could dare attack journalists again.
