The ring road, starting from Mehmood Booti Interchange at Lahore Ring Road, would culminate at Kala Shah Kaku Interchange the junction of GT Road and Lahore Islamabad Motorway.

The building of the bypass would facilitate the traffic at GT Road moving towards eastern and northern Lahore, divert besides curbing the heavy current of traffic between Kala Shah Kaku and Lahore at Ravi Bridge and GT Road.
