The Punjab government has inaugurated the first environment-friendly road in Lahore. The road is made of plastic, making it cost-efficient, and the total cost is PKR 20 million.
Punjab Caretaker Chief Minister Mohsin Naqvi was there to inaugurate the 900-meter-long Zafar Ali plastic road. It stretches from Gymkhana Mall Road to Jail Road. CM Punjab inspected the mechanism and quality of this innovative road. University of Engineering and Technology Lahore professors provided him with the necessary details.
The major benefit of the plastic road is that it is resilient against rainwater, extending its lifespan to 10 years. Unlike the other simple roads, the road gets little damage from the rainwater.
As per the details provided by the UET Professors, it is made from recycled material, which not only lowers its cost but also increases its durability. The caretaker CM appreciated the initiative and asked the relevant authorities to work on other similar projects in the future.
