Ravi Riverfront Urban Development Project
Ravi Riverfront Urban Development Project (RRUDP) is an approved urban development megaproject in Lahore District, Punjab, Pakistan that runs along the Ravi River in a northeast to southwest direction.
It includes the construction of a 40,000-hectare (100,000-acre) planned city and the rehabilitation of the Ravi River into a perennial freshwater body.
The project is to be completed in three phases. It is expected to be the largest riverfront in the world when finished.
A modern city on the banks of the Ravi River, bordering Lahore on the north and the west sides, consisting of green belts, piers, and boardwalks, along with 1.4 million residential units are part of the masterplan.
