ISLAMABAD: Minister for Communication Murad Saeed said that the government needed at least fourteen thousand police personnel to make a number of under-construction roads motorable.

He said that the proper planning would be carried out at the PC-1 stage of any project for construction of roads to provide all the relevant facilities to the commuters, said a press release issued here.

The minister said in order to establish a network of highways, the construction of roads alone was not sufficient, but it needed provision of essential prerequisites including efficient police, standardized signal and communication systems to provide secure and safe traveling facility to the commuters.

He said opening these roads without proper arrangements would pose a risk to the road users causing accidents and security related mishaps.
