The opposition often raises lavish spending on Raiwind Road which houses the residences of the Sharif brothers.

It was decided in a meeting of the LDA governing body meeting, presided over by District Coordination Officer and LDA Chairman Noorul Amin Mengal, says a press release.

The project includes the widening of the Bhupatian crossing, provision of lane marking, installation of road safety devices and traffic signals, shifting of services and acquisition of land measuring more than four kanals.

The body also delegated powers to the LDA director general for appointing legal firms.
