According to KP Finance Minister Taimur Saleem Jhagra’s Twitter account, the ECNEC has approved the missing link between Warsak Road and Nasirbagh Road on the Peshawar Ring Road at a new cost of PKR 16.6 billion. He said that now that this has happened, the Peshawar Development Authority will be able to send out tenders in the next month. Minister Jhagra said that the new road will make traffic better.
Under the new plans, the 8.7-kilometer-long, six-lane dual carriageway will get service roads, a flyover where Warsak Road meets Regi-Palosi Road and another where Regi-Palosi Road meets Regi-Palosi Road. Along the route, there will also be three bridges over nullahs and two bridges over canals. The plan also calls for building three underpasses to help with traffic flow.
Based on what has been said, the road section will give the Aghan transit trade and the areas of Jamrud Road, Askari-VI, Regi Model Town, and DHA an alternative route. It will also provide traffic in an alternative way and help eliminate some of the traffic in the city. It also wants to help the economy grow, make the city’s roads last longer, and reduce environmental pollution.
