PESHAWAR:

Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa Chief Minister Mahmood Khan has directed the Pakhtunkhwa Highways Authority (PKHA) to expedite the construction work on Swat Motorway Phase- II in addition to meeting the timelines specified for various aspects of Dir Motorway, DI Khan Motorway and other road projects.

The chief minister will formally inaugurate the construction work on Abbottabad to Thandiani Road today (Thursday), which is a mega project of the provincial government under the integrated tourism development project.

While chairing a progress review meeting on the roads sector development projects in the province, the chief minister said that every effort is being made to guarantee that the taxpayers’ money is spent in a judicious and beneficial manner to ensure best value for money.

Briefing the meeting regarding the road sector projects, it was revealed that construction work on 24.3-km Abbottabad to Thandiani Road has been initiated, which will be completed at an estimated cost of Rs3 billion.

Furthermore, construction machinery has been deployed at the site of the 22-km Mankyal-Bada Sarai-Jabai Road which will be completed at an estimated cost of Rs5.7 billion.

However, the initial 4-km alignment of the said project has been damaged due to the recent flash floods and currently, work is underway on its realignment.

Moreover, in order to avoid flood-related damage in future, the construction of an 85-meter bridge is also proposed at the site.
