According to the details, the 153 km long Chitral-Shandur road is an alternate route of China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) which will promote trade, development and sustainable tourism in the country.
The project costs Rs17 billion and would be completed in four phases. Currently, the road is 6 to 7 meters long but after reconstruction it would be extended to 30 meters long.
Earlier, the Prime Minister inaugurated the reconstruction of the Chitral-Shandur-Gilgit Road project. The project would attract tourism and fosters the development of the region.
The road extends from Chitral in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province to Shandur in Gilgit-Baltistan province.
From Mastuj the road splits into two, continuing to the north pole to Yarkhun road which ends in the last valley of Broghil.
