  1. Good to here that some important projects are to be excited in Upper Chitral. Jeepable bridges at Awi and Diwangole have been long standing demand of the people. At Sr no 8 of the bid list Location of a bridge at Yarkhoon is not clear.

  2. We the peoples of village Awi are grateful to KPK Govt for aproving funds for a bridge which will be a short cut and a bypass road for the entire Yarkhoon and Laspur vallies . Our sincere thanks go to Wazir zadah sahab also whose sincere struggle made the success. This bridge should be constructed at the side which has been visited and surveyed many times in the past and has been declared phisyble in every respect neglecting political pressure for change of side. Further, this bridge will be a short access to District head quarter Booni which vey often remains cut off fro m upper Chitral due to road damage on many locations in front of Booni during rainy season and earth quakes .Previous survey reports and phisybility assessments are available with the C&W department Booni
