The construction of this revised project started in March 2022. Mr. Khurram Nawaz Awan, the special assistant to Prime Minister on Capital Development Authority Affairs announced in a public gathering at Bhara Kahu that the work on and long-awaited Bhara Kahu Bypass has been started in March 2022 which is estimated to be finished in two years. It will eventually resolve the severe traffic jams at Bhara Kahu. Bhara Kahu Bypass would not only benefit the locals but would also facilitate the tourists heading towards and the dwellers of Murree and Azad Kashmir. The Frontier Works Organisation would be executing an agency that would carry out the work.
The revised alignment plan of the Bhara Kahu Bypass Flyover was part of Margalla Road. The revised alignment plan was presented by the Army’s Engineer in Chief to the officials of the civic agency. He mentioned that the first alignment was 2km short for which they had to acquire land by paying compensation to the people for their already built-up property. Therefore, to avoid new acquisition and subsequent litigation, they opted for revised alignment, which is 2km longer but it passes through state land,” A CDA official told. The official also elaborated that under the revised alignment, the road would be constructed on the state land starting from Quaid- e- Azam University Till Satra Meel.
According to the CDA’s master plan, Margallah road will start from Sangjani on G.T road, and passing through Margalla Hills will culminate on Murree road with Satra Meel. The FWO has been made responsible to construct the road by the CDA and already has a lot of defense installations alongside the route of the proposed Margalla Road. The FWO is already working on the 1st portion of the Road from Sangjani to D-12. In the 2nd phase, the road would be linked to the Khayaban –e-Iqbal near constitution avenue. The third and the final portion of the Margallah road starts from Quaid e Azam University to Satra Meel of which the Bhara Kahu Bypass is the major part.
