Peshawar

May 15, 2019

PESHAWAR: Chief Minister Mahmood Khan on Tuesday directed the authorities to finalise arrangements for opening the Swat Motorway to general traffic before Eidul Fitr.

The chief minister stated that he would inspect the Swat Motorway soon, adding that the construction of motorway for promotion of tourism was the first ever attempt made by any government.

“The Swat Motorway will go a long way towards the promotion of tourism in the province,” he said while chairing a review meeting on Swat Motorway Phase-III.

The chief minister was also briefed on the five interchanges to be completed in Phase 3 of the project which includes Malam Jabba Interchange, Mingora Kanju Interchange, Sher Palam Interchange, Matta Khwaza Khela Interchange and Bagh Dheri Interchange.

The meeting was informed that with the inauguration of Swat Motorway, the traffic load on the N-95 national highway would decrease considerably, thereby relieving traffic related issues.

The meeting was informed that in addition to generating jobs opportunities, villages adjacent to the entire swat motorway project would witness remarkable development in its business because of easy access to major market places.

Previously, these areas remained under-developed because these were cut off from major routes, making transportation and business extremely difficult.
