The Punjab government would construct 450 kilometre roads in tribal areas to provide transportation facility to the masses. The roads would be completed in different phases, Project Director Tribal Areas Development Khursheed Ahmed said this while chairing a meeting on Wednesday.
He said they had approved 62 uplift schemes, including water supply, digging of wells for irrigation, construction of flood embankment, solar tubewell and solar energy system for houses in the areas. He added that the government had provided huge funds.
