Bajaur: The Lovisam-Rashakai Road was closed to traffic for three days on Tuesday by authorities in Peshawar to expedite the completion of ongoing construction work on the Bajaur-Peshawar route.
The decision to keep the road closed to traffic was made in conjunction with the Frontier Works Organisation, which was constructing the road, according to a statement released by the district administration.
The closure of the busy artery would have an impact on commuters and carriers, but it was necessary for construction to go smoothly, according to the report. The carriers had already been told of the decision, so they could utilise the Inzari, Thangi, and Inayat Kallay routes during the closure, according to the statement.
During the three-day closure of the key artery, police officers and civil defence volunteers were deployed on the road to direct trucks to alternate routes. The 71-kilometer Timergara-Khar-Mamad Gat Road is nearing completion, according to the statement, with various parts expected to be completed by next month.
