Hakla-D I Khan Motorway Inaugurated

A 293-kilometre long Hakla-D I Khan Motorway that links an important Western route of China Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) has been inaugurated by Prime Minister Imran Khan. The Hakla-D I Khan Motorway has 11 interchanges, 36 bridges, 33 flyovers and 119 underpasses. It will help in transforming D I Khan as one of the main business hubs in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province, linking South Punjab and Balochistan. It will also enable supply of agricultural produce to different parts of the country. While previously, the development of the country was confined only to GT Road, Lahore and onward to Karachi, which was also called the Eastern route of CPEC, but this will help to establish the new western route way. Hakla-D I Khan Motorway would connect those areas which were less developed. The lack of facilities forced the inhabitants of D I Khan and Mianwali to move to the developed cities which also resulted in the brain drain and flight of talent. This will not only develop the backward area but also lift the surroundings economically providing the new job market for daily wagers.
