HYDERABAD: The groundbreaking of Sukkur-Hyderabad has been postponed to next Tuesday.
As per the details, Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif was to break ground on 9th December (today), but the ceremony has been postponed due to his ‘pressing engagement’.
The groundbreaking will be held on two points, Sukkur and Hyderabad on the same day.
It was shared that according to the National Highway Authority’s rules, the Executive Board is considered competent to sign the approval.
However, the NHA council has signed the final approval in this case.
The Sukkur-Hyderabad route has been the final missing link to the Karachi-Peshawar motorway.
Additionally, under this project, a 306 kilometers long motorway including 6 lanes will also be constructed on a build, operate, and transfer basis with a concession period of about 25 years.
