Chitral road as alternative to CPEC recommended

tunnelThe members of the National Assembly Standing Committee on Communication held its meeting here the other day. The meeting said the 309 km Nowshera-Chitral road would well serve as the alternative to CPEC in case the route through KKH is blocked for any reason. The chairman of the National Highway Authority (NHA) informed the meeting that work on the Lowari tunnel project, part of the Nowshera-Chitral highway, was near completion and would be opened for traffic in March 2017. It may be noted that after the completion of the tunnel and the main highway, Pakistan would be linked to the Central Asian countries via Chitral’s Boroghil pass. The Nowshera-ChitralTajikistan road would also be lined to Gilgit-Baltistan via the Shadur Pass to become an alternative to CPEC.]]>

    Indeed this is great news for the people of Chitral and C-PEC shall improve the socio-economic condition of the people of Pakistan particularly the people of Chitral if Chitral road will really be considered. It would be more productive if both Durah Pass and Broghul equally will be considered to connect the Central Asian countries. But now Chitrilans must have to prepare themselves to avail benefits from this opportunity rather than outsiders come and take control the business etc. in the area.

    This is Such a great news for all of us and once it is materialized those would be the greatest happiest days of our lives.May God help those who try to pave the way for such a gigantic project which would pass through Chitral to link Central Asian countries.

    It is really a very big news not only for the Chitral people but, for all the districts of the KPK Province through which the recommended alternate route of CPEC would pass.We have sworn not to sing praises of the government or MPA or MNA,until the projects are approved and materialized.The National Assembly Standing Committee on Communication has done its duty considering the proposal in the best interest of the whole Pakistani Nation.

    yes it is a good news for all chitrali segment, but it needs the representatives to stand to the point in concerened floors. the other side of the balance i.e Gilgit side is comparatively stronger then us , but lets hope for the best
