  • Still a lot of work to do. Many links in these proposed highways are still non-existent.

    Need to speed up the process in order to avail benefits from these highways.

    What would be the fate of KKH once Bhasha Dam construction starts?

    I think they need to build a tunnel under Babusar pass to provide the alternative route. That will also shorten the distance between Mansehra and Chilas.
