@MM Alam Road, Gulberg, Lahore.

Let me shout it out, MM Alam Road is in the worst condition now a days with two or three manholes pouring out the filthy water on streets and two very deep infamous holes in the road near Shell petrol pump. I just cannot stand that a place with so many studs has lost its attraction just by this bad smell everywhere. It is hard for me to imagine even going to some restaurant there and coming back without having nausea due to this smell in these days. Maybe a little part of it is downpour but I think this is because of lots of construction going on here and there on MM Alam. Have you been to MM Alam road lately, what is your experience?

    I agree completely PS.I have been there a couple of weeks earlier and couldn’t bear the smell which simply spoiled my mood.

    @bored: Yeah, mostly they solve this problem in matter of few days…but this time it has been quite long since this all started.

    by the way, the government plans to completely remodel the M.M.Alam Rd. (with underground electricity wires etc.) but it’ll only start after they’re done with Liberty Market renovation and CTC-wali-road reconstruction.

    CTC wali should get completed by now. Its too hard to think about a brownie now just because of that damn sort-of-road thing.

    there was news about a renovation of mm alam road last year and nazim said it will start in december 2006 and complete in 4 months, so why isnt it still started when it should have been completed.

    also does anyone else know when noor jehan road completes and what new features are being added there like underground electric wires, footpaths etc.

    there was a plan by Govt. to make this all new back 2 years but you know usual Govt. fuss and things … not a single patch work yet done on this road. This road is the busiest and IS in the poorest condition so far – no doubt about it.


  12. Pretty Simple (unregistered) on August 1st, 2007 @ 2:50 pm

    Yes, and plus …due to this CTC wali construction, all the traffice flow is shared by MM Alam now ,,,making it even more difficult for the drivers.
