The construction work of Upper Chitral and Shandur Road after 40 years has been handed over to National Highway Authority after federalization, which brought feelings of bliss and delight among the people of the area.
Some 40 years ago, Booni road was constructed by a Chinese construction company but no work was expected on that road by Communication and Works department. Now NHA has been assigned its construction and work is being progressed with keen determination.
Moreover, the construction of these roads would not only result in a reduced number of accidents by providing transport facilities to the people but it will also play a major role in the development of the tourism sector in this backward district.
As per the official statement, the total length of this highway under the management of the National Highway Authority NHA is 153 km and its width is 42 feet.
