Today in Islamabad, the Executive Committee of the National Economic Council (ECNEC) convened under the chairmanship of Minister of Finance Miftah Ismail.
With a reduced cost of 308 million rupees, the Committee authorised the build-operate-transfer project for the Hyderabad–Sukkur Motorway.
The National Roadway Authority will carry out the project, which calls for building a 306-kilometer-long, 6-lane-wide, divided, and walled highway between Hyderabad and Sukkur.
For a cost of 1,738 million rupees, the ECNEC has approved the construction of a 4-lane Lahore-Sialkot Motorway link route that will connect the Narang Mandi and Kartarpur Narowal Motorways, as well as the Narowal Eastern Bypass. Three years will pass before the project is finished.
The ECNEC has also given the go-ahead for the 1,649 million rupee project to build Peshawar’s 6-lane Northern Ring Road from Warsak Road to Nasir Bagh Road. This undertaking will be completely funded and carried out.
In three years, the 8.7 kilometer-long project will be finished.
