The project was proposed to mitigate low-pressure problems in the existing 12-inch/20-inch diameter pipeline. A press statement from the SSGC said that the distribution ACPL lines are needed to meet the rising demand of SITE Area and Hub Town and to improve the operational efficiency of the distribution system. The project is being built at a cost of Rs5.1 billion and is scheduled to be completed by June 2024.
