PESHAWAR: The provincial government and construction companies of the Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) project have prepared a comprehensive plan to resolve the traffic problem in the city.

The spokesman for the BRT project, Masood Khan, said the provincial government, Peshawar Development Authority (PDA) and construction companies of the project had prepared a plan for smooth flow of traffic during BRT construction in the city.

He said the traffic police had been taken on board for execution of the traffic plan as the construction companies wanted to complete the remaining work of the project on a war footing basis.
