Federal Minister for Communication Dr Hafiz Abdul Kareem Friday said the professional working of Motorway Police had become a role model for other departments. After inaugurating Beat 20 Building in Bahawalpur, he said that the new recruitments would be made very soon to the Motorway Police.
In the next year, he added, the motorways would further be extended by up to 1,800 kilometers. He said new motorways were being built in Balochistan, Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa, Sindh, Punjab and Gilgit-Baltistan. The new motorways between Lahore-Multan, Karachi-Hyderabad, Liyari Bypass, Khanewal-Gojra, Hazara Motorway from Havelian to Hassan Abdal would become functional in the next few months.
The minister said that the road networks were vital to achieving economic objectives.—APP
