KP Emergency Roads Recovery
A 10.5 km of road from Chakdara to Madyan in Swat is being built under the World Bank administered and MDTF-financed Emergency Roads Recovery Projects (ERRP). The road was damaged in the aftermath of the crisis in KP. Rahim ul Hadi, a resident of Swat recalls, “The old road was built more than 60 years ago by the British. When we travel the only problem we face is because of the bad road conditions which make it very difficult for us to go anywhere in this area”.
Almost 36 percent complete, the new road is expected to be ready ahead of the estimated time and will benefit around 300,000 people. Year round access and mobility, improved traffic flow with reduced vehicle operating costs and travel time are among the many benefits anticipated by the community.
