In which Prime Minister of Pakistan “Nawaz Sharif” & CM Punjab “Shahbaz Sharif” signed the agreement of a 50:50 share between the Federal & Provincial Government.

However, this project was completed in June 2015, cost 46 billion PKR & launched to the general public. At the start, it faced many construction-related issues which the opponents criticized. But, overall, it added value to the locals riding experience.

ائیر پورٹ جاتے ہوئے ایچ نائن سٹاپ پر کشمیر ہائی وے کو کراس کرنے کے لئے ایک اوور ہیڈ برج بنایا گیا ہے اس کے جی نائن طرف والی سائیڈ سے تو پل پر جانے کا راستہ ہے لیکن ایچ نائن طرف سے کشمیر ہائی وے سے پل پر جانے کا راستہ نہیں دیا گیا جو کہ سڑک کو کراس کرنے کے لئے بہت ہی خطرناک ہے کیونکہ کشمیر ہائی وے وے پر ٹریفک کا رش اور سپیڈ بہت زیادہ ہوتی ہے
برائے مہربانی اس مسئلے کو فوری طور پر دیکھیں اس سے پہلے کہ کوئی حادثہ ہو جائے۔شکریہ
