Swat motorway to be inaugurated next month


Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Communication and Works Minister Akbar Ayub Khan said Prime Minister Imran Khan is expected to inaugurate Swat motorway on 25th of next month.

Radio Pakistan reported that the work on the construction of 81 kilometre-long Swat Motorway would be completed by May at a cost of Rs34 billion.

The provincial minister said that the motorway has been linked with Peshawar-Islamabad Motorway at Karnal Sher Khan Interchange near Swabi.

“The Swat motorway will boost tourism, trade and economic activities in Malakand and Mardan divisions,” he added.

Last month, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Chief Minister Mahmood Khan had said that extension of Swat Motorway would bring economic revolution in the province.

The CM said that it would promote tourism and industry, besides creating new job opportunities in the province.

The Swat motorway would be extended from Chakdara to Mingora to facilitate the masses, sources said.

      One can assume the rush condition that the total distance from batkhela to mingora is about 45 KM and it take about 2 hours so why a person say that it’s satisfactory

  1. Safari train should be built to promote tourism in northern areas as well as the railway. It should be built along side the motorway. We need imagination to revive our railway and PIA. It will be a win win situation.
