KP govt asks centre to start reconstruction work on Bahrain-Kalam Road
May 17, 2017

PESHAWAR, 17 May: The Khyber Pakhtunkhwa government on Wednesday sent another reminder to the federal government to start construction work on Bahrain-Kalam road.
The KP Additional Chief Secretary Muhammad Azam Khan sent the reminder letter to Chairman National Highway Authority (NHA). In his letter, he pointed out that no reconstruction and repairing work has been carried out on the main Bahrain-Kalam road.
The Bahrain-Kalam road was devastated in 2010 floods and since then it has been in dilapidated condition. Despite repeated claims and the double inauguration of the road construction, the main road leading to Kalam still awaits construction.
In his letter, Azam Khan said that more than 6 million tourists had visited Swat last year. He said that the number of tourists could be doubled if the road had been reconstructed. He said that it is the fourth time that KP government is communicated to NHA in this regard. He asked the NHA chairman to start the construction work on the main road on the priority basis.
