The flyover has been constructed at the Jauhar intersection in the bustling residential neighborhood of Gulistan-e-Jauhar in the city’s District. The 18.2-meter-wide flyover’s construction cost was approximately Rs. 850 million.
In October 2022, the province Local Government Department began building. To light up the flyover, double arm poles with LED lights have been employed.
Syed Nasir Hussain Shah, the local government minister, Syed Murad Ali Shah, the information minister, and others were present during the inauguration ceremony. The LG Minister informed the PPP chairman that the flyover and flyover project was expected to cost Rs. 2.14 billion. He stated that while work was still ongoing, the flyover had already been finished.
