ISLAMABAD: The National Highway Authority (NHA) has planned to construct a 200-kilometre road from Nokundi in Chagai district of Balochistan on Iran border to Panjgoor for providing a link to Gwadar Port, an official of NHA told APP on Monday.

He said the NHA has issued a tender for hiring consultancy services for feasibility study and detailed design for construction of Nokundi-Mashkhel-Panjgoor Road.

Bringing At Par: NHA focusing on underdeveloped areas

The proposed project would provide a link between Ratto Dero-Gwadar Motorway (M-8) and Surab-Hoshab Highway (N-85).

The construction of 200km road is part of the Public Sector Development Programme (PSDP) 2017-18 with an allocation of Rs100 million.

It is pertinent to mention that PC-II for construction of about 90km section from Mashkhel to Gamilandi on Quetta-Taftan Raod, falling between the proposed alignment, was already done.

The construction of Nokundi-Mashkhel-Panjgoor Road would help enhance commercial and tourist activities in the region and contribute to the economic growth through providing employment opportunities to the local people.
