The National Highway Authority (NHA) has completed over 90 percent of construction work on 32-KM long Bahrain-Kalam road that was devastated by floods in 2010. The construction work on Bahrain-Kalam road, initiated in May, 2017, would be completed in coming days as it entered into final stages, an official source in the NHA told APP.
‘Only 1.5 kilometer patch of this road is yet to be rehabilitated on which construction work is being carried out expeditiously,’ he added. An official source in Tourism Corporation Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (TCKP) said Kalam was one of the top tourists’ destinations and would regain its lost glory due to construction of that road.
He said the 32 km bumpy hilly road that had been testing travelers’ nerves for the last nine years would eventually reduce half the traveling time for tourists.—APP
