PESHAWAR: *KP government gives yet another new deadline for the Peshawar BRT project.*
In yet another deadline, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Information Minister Shaukat Yousafzai on Tuesday announced to inaugurate Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) Peshawar in April, this year.
Shaukat Yousafizai said final phase of BRT Peshawar will be completed by February 15, adding that 50 buses are available at the corridor.
The minister said training of the staff and drivers of the project is currently underway and the provincial government would be able for a test run of the project in April.
Replying to a query, Shuakat Yousafzai said, the government assured Supreme Court for the completion of the project in June as a precautionary measure in case of any delay.
The Supreme Court link on Monday had stopped the Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) from probing alleged irregularities in the Peshawar Bus Rapid Transit project.
A three-member bench of the apex court headed by Justice Umar Ata Bandial announced its verdict on the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa government’s petition challenging a Peshawar High Court order from November 2019 directing the FIA to conduct an inquiry into different aspects of the bus project.
