Peshawar: According to media reports, the government of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KP) has begun planning and feasibility studies for Gandhara Valley City in Peshawar.
The government has chosen to divide and delegate Gandhara Valley City’s planning and feasibility work to separate experts. The procedure is expected to take five months to complete. Aside from that, Peshawar Development Authority (PDA) has been tasked with building Gandhara Valley City. PDA Director General (DG) Ammara Khan stated that the feasibility study will include all of the project’s highlights.
The decision was made during a meeting convened by KP Minister for Local Government Akbar Ayub Khan to assess the PDA’s development projects. During the meeting, Akbar Ayub Khan acknowledged his satisfaction with PDA’s performance and conveyed his expectation that all projects will be completed on time.
The conference was attended by Local Government Special Secretary Mutasim Billah Shah, directors of local authority departments, and representatives from provincial and federal government organizations.
Furthermore, the province minister has directed the district administration and the Planning and Development Department to collaborate closely with the PDA in order to expedite the approval of PC-1 and the acquisition of land for the Warsak Road-Nasir Bagh Ring Road portion.
Similarly, the minister said that the construction of a modern bus terminal near the BRT Chamkani Depo has been put on hold due to PC-1 and land acquisition. He also requested that the expansion and beauty of the Pir Zakori Bridge and the Hayatabad-Detour Road be expedited.
