  • I congratulate General Bajwa and Imran Khan for this project. It is true that PMLM started it but they were doing corruption and not completing it. But now Imran Khan has completed it in under 2 years.If it would be PMLn then this project would have never completed.

  • Will this help reduce travelling time to Naran Kagan as well?
    Because last time i went through motorway upto Shah Maqsood interchange/exit.
    How much further this will take (most nearer point at Naran Kagan?)

    • Omer Sabir, now the motorway is extended till mansehra, it means you have avoided the huge traffic of abbotabad and obviously the time from Islamabad to mansehra has decreased

  • Can you not use an actual pic of this expressway instead of this pic of indian road. You guys have been using this pic for all hazara motorway and expressway news.

    • meri marzi ma jis ki bhi pic use karo
      tum content per dhiyan do pic is just for attention

      faqat,
      apka apna
      haroon sasta

  • Compliments Honorable Lt. Gen., Asim Saleem Bajwa on historical legend to Developments in Mobility/Logistics, Surface Transport. Digitisation an important part are being taken cared of of. Digital tools as software, cameras, sensors are in advance stage of readiness for deployment making roads safe from Accidents today and in future. Best wishes
