CPEC WESTERN ROUTE
The present administration has demonstrated enormous efficiency in building the western route of the CPEC, according to Murad Saeed, the federal Minister of Postal and Communications. He stated that the current PTI government took over responsibility for the Western Route from Balochistan and is thus implementing this at a much faster speed.
These comments are express during the groundbreaking ceremony of several Western road construction projects, including dialyzing the bypass of Quetta Western, Dera Murad Jamil Bypass, and Ziarat Mor-Kach-Harnai-Sanjavi Road. But over the last two years, as PTI overtook operations, construction has begun on 3,300 km-long national routes. Murad Saeed further said that in the preceding fifteen years. It’s proposed 1100 km of road construction. This current administration has, it believes, realized this ambition of CPEC’s Western Route and finalized by the time the PTI government ends.
