Hakla-Dera Ismail Khan likely to be completed by end of 2019
The Hakla-D I Khan Motorway project, part of western alignment of the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor is likely to be completed by end of this year.
An official of National Highway Authority told APP that the motorway would reduce travel time between Islamabad and Dera Ismail Khan and boost economic activities in less developed areas of Punjab and Khyber Pakhtunkhwa.
The four-lane 285-kilometre north-south motorway starts from the Hakla Interchange on Peshawar-Islamabad Motorway, near Fateh Jang, and termites at Yarik near Dera Ismail Khan.
The motorway includes 11 interchanges, 19 flyovers, 15 bridges, 74 underpasses, 259 culverts,and three major bridges one at River Sawan, one at River Indus and third at River Koram.
