Talking to local newspaper reporters at his office, the DC said under the decision taken by the provincial government, only small vehicles would be allowed entry in the tunnel. No heavy vehicles such as trucks would be allowed to cross the tunnel as construction work continues inside the passageway.
He said goods bound for Chitral in trucks would be shifted to mini-trucks at the Dir side of the tunnel to cross over to the Chitral side. The DC said fares of the passenger and transport vehicles on the Dir-Chitral route would also be fixed by the local administration, adding transporters would not be allowed to fix the fares on their own.]]>
