KP Govt Approves Phase-II of Swat Motorway

The Government of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KP) has approved the agreement draft on developing a public-private partnership to complete the project of constructing the Swat Motorway Phase-II. The agreement will be signed with a successful bidder.

In this connection, a meeting was held with Chief Minister Mahmood Khan in the chair in Peshawar on Friday.

The 80-kilometer Swat motorway will cover Chakdara Interchange to Madyan Fateh Pur.
