Havelian- Prime Minister Muhammad Nawaz Sharif today performed the ground breaking ceremony of the Hazara Motorway in Havelian.

This road link is part of Pakistan-China Economic Corridor agreement. The 60 km long expressway will reduce the drive time from Islamabad to Havelian to just 30 minutes. Also, it will facilitate the Havelian Dry Port project.

The government believes the project will create employment opportunities along with other benefits for the region.

 “I hope that the people holding sit-ins will not object to this,” he said while taunting the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf. Nawaz also announced the reduction of Rs 9.66 in the petrol price.

Earlier, Sharif was briefed on the project by National Highway Authority chief Shahid Ashraf Tarar. On arrival, the Prime Minister was welcomed by the PML-N leadership.
