Mughalpura Irrigation Workshop, Lahore Division works under the Punjab Irrigation Department. Parts e.g. Canal / River Gates are manufactured here. This was one of the most effected places when Shalimar Interchange / Mughalpura Flyover was built because a lot of land was acquired from this workshop to widen the roads.[not in citation given]
This interchange and flyover was inaugurated by the Punjab Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif in January, 2010. The 3-tier interchange was developed by FWO. It has a 1.6 km long flyover and 2.2 km long underpass.
