Muhammad Mehmood said that the objective to construct the Ring Road was to improve economic connectivity and road transport efficiency in the twin cities, Rawalpindi-Islamabad through constructing a Ring Road and associated facilities.
The district government had started paying compensation amount to the owners of the land being acquired for RRRP, he added.
He said, the Ring Road would set a new horizon for the development of in the city and it would pave the way for the development of the city in the southwest.
He said, Ring Road was a much needed project for the twin cities as the citizens faced difficulties on daily basis due to traffic gridlocks at several roads including Rawalpindi city's main artery, Murree Road.
The commissioner said that the administration of truck and bus terminals had been given two years to plan for shifting out of the city areas as with the completion of the project, heavy transport would not be allowed to enter the city.
He said, the ban would be indispensable for solving traffic problems and controlling environmental pollution.
He said that relocation of heavy transport terminals out of the city was inevitable as the utility of the Ring Road project would be lost if the heavy traffic was allowed to enter the city areas even after completion of the project.
