Traffic starts plying from Pakhowal Road Rail Under Bridge (RuB) from Saturday, January 1. Punjab Food, Civil Supplies & Consumer Affairs Minister Bharat Bhushan Ashu opened the Pakhowal Road RuB-2 for a trial run for vehicular traffic.

He was also accompanied by Mayor Balkar Singh Sandhu, Senior Deputy Mayor Sham Sunder Malhotra, LIT Chairman Raman Balasubramaniam, MC Councillor Mamta Ashu, MC Commissioner Pardeep Kumar Sabharwal and other senior officials.

It is pertinent to mention that the Pakhowal Road RUB-2 would be used by vehicular traffic coming along the Sidhwan Canal and going towards Sarabha Nagar (near the skating rink).

The construction of a Rail Over Bridge (ROB) and two Rail Under Bridges (RUB’s) on Pakhowal Road has been a long pending demand of the city residents. This joint project is worth around Rs 123 crore and is aimed to provide respite from traffic congestion to the city residents.

Cabinet Minister Bharat Bhushan Ashu informed that the ROB would be 960 meters in length and would be constructed from Sidhwan Canal side towards Hero Bakery side, along Pakhowal Road over existing Railway Track. The RuB 1 would be 527 metres in length (from Hero Bakery side towards Sidhwan Canal side, along Pakhowal Road under existing Railway Track), whereas the RuB 2 would be 656 metres in length.

The minister on the occasion said that the RuB-2 has been opened for a dry run on January 1. “Within the next few days, when all the works are completed, it would be opened for vehicular traffic. All the ongoing development projects in Ludhiana (West) constituency are going on in full swing and would be completed in a set time frame,” Minister Ashu said.
