Hazara Motorway, after facing numerous delays, is set to open this month after Zahreeul Islam, the local commissioner, confirmed in September that the project would be opened for traffic soon.
He has said, “I am expecting this strategically important artery to be completed within the next three to four weeks, which will reduce the vehicular burden on Karakoram Highway”. He added that the construction of the Havelian-Mansehra section of the motorway is in the final stages, with little patches where construction is still on-going.
Recently, pictures were shared on Twitter showing that to avoid high beam blindness, glare shields are being installed on Hazara Motorway.

“We could have opened Hazara Motorway to traffic almost mid of August but the spell of rains intercepted work,” said the commissioner.
The glare shield is quite useful and should be replicated in other major motorways/highways across Pakistan to avoid accidents at night.
