I hope something pops up in Peshawar & Quetta too, but it seems unlikely for a while. Those towers in Pindi & Faisalabad look decent.

PESHAWAR: A meeting to prepare recommendations and brief for the Steering Committee on Housing Development was held with NWFP Secretary for Housing Dr. Tashfeen Khan in the chair here on Thursday.

The meeting besides the Director General Provincial Housing Authority, Jan Ali Khan and Deputy Secretary Housing Arshad Khan was also attended by the representatives of Commercial Banks, House Building Finance Corporation, Private Builders and Developers Companies and authorities concerned of the Sarhad Development Authority, Industries, P&D, Finance, Revenue and Local Government Departments.

The meeting thoroughly debated upon the issues relating to availability of land, land title, land acquisition, computerization and registration of land, housing finance, resource mobilization, credit facilities and subsidies besides discussing incentives to developers/contractors/investors, public private partnership and joint ventures and provision of government guarantees to investors.

The meeting on this occasion directed the Revenue Department to identify old government colonies side by side providing details of state land in Peshawar as well as other big cities of the province to construct high rise apartments on it.

Similarly, the finance department was asked to submit its comments on Sovereign Guarantee for private builders. The meeting also directed the quarters concerned to provide details of Mashariqa of Islamic Banking regarding Housing Sector.

Secretary Housing Dr. Tashfeen in his concluding remarks asked the participants to look into the agenda and send their feed back at their earliest to finalize brief for the steering committee on housing development.

He said that the government was intending to make high rise apartments in the urban areas while developing residential plots in the rural areas to cater to the residential requirements of the people of the province.

He added that the department has so far identified three different sites for housing development in Peshawar besides identifying land for the purpose at Sheikhan Kohat, Jalozai Nowshera and state land in D.I.Khan.

He further said that efforts were underway to acquire 300 kanal state land of Jarma at Kohat. Similarly, the department was also ordered to make efforts for acquiring land opposite WAPDA colony at Taru Jabba on GT Road Peshawar for a Township.

I hope they make this uni in the top 1000 so some people like me wont need to go to another country to study. And they better put different courses on, that will stop even more people from going to another country.

Dir-Chitral: Lowari Tunnel Project | INFRASTRUCTURE | U/C

The Lowari Tunnel is an 8.6km (5.3 mi.) long road/rail tunnel located in the NWFP province of Pakistan between Dir and Chitral Districts.

The tunnel will reportedly reduce the current 14-hour drive from Chitral to Peshawar by half. Moreover, people of Chitral have to travel from Afghanistan and then enter back in Pakistan during the winter season as Lowari top is closed for any traffic for most part of the year. Chitral remains virtually inaccessible in the winter, the tunnel will also facilitate all-weather transportation. Some Chitrali natives are concerned about the impact the potentially increased tourism will have on the region.

A South Korean construction company, SAMBU has been assigned the work on the tunnel. It is expected to be completed at a cost of Rs.8 billion ($133 million US). Currently the project is overseen by Mr. Salman Rashid, General Manager of National Highway Authority (NHA). Salman Rashid is a retired Lt. Col. of Pakistan Army, he belonged to the Corp of Engineers. He has been a part of several major construction projects all over Pakistan.

A Project Proposed by PACE Pakistan:

Peacock Valley Resorts - Chakwal

Peacock Valley, famous for its habitat of various species of Peacocks, is sitauted in the suburbs of District Chakwal. Lying at the beginning of the Potohar plateau and the Salt Range, Chakwal is covered with scrub forest in the southwest, and levelled plains interspaced with dry rocky patches in the north and northeast.

The land acquired for the project is located around a beautiful lake which is approximately one and a half kilometers from the M2 Lahore Islamabad Motorway just few minutes away from famous Salt Range. Nearly 2.5 hours drive from Lahore and 1 hour from Islamabad, the project would prove to be a house to tourists, families on weekend, recreational and ceremonial trips and to multinational and local companies for business meetings.

The project would comprise of a 200 room key resort hotel to be managed by an international operator and 40 Pace Managed Resort Villas. With change in people’s lifestyle and dearth of accommodations like this in all over the province, the project is expected to be a great success.

Sialkot International Airport | INFRASTRUCTURE | COMPLETED

- The Longest Runway in Pakistan at 3.6 kilometres

- 1st Airport to be Privately built and run airport in Pakistan (thanks to the entrepreneurs and the entrepreneurial spirit of Sialkot)

- 9th International Airport after Karachi, Lahore, Islamabad, Peshawar, Quetta, Faisalabad, Multan & Gwadar.

- Pakistan consists of Small and Medium Enterprises, (SMEs) which form the backbone of its economy. About 60% of Pakistan's SME's are located in the region of Export Triangle of Pakistan comprising Sialkot, Gujrat and Gujranwala.

- The area is rightly called a Golden Triangle consisting of three districts namely, Sialkot, Gujrat and Gujranwala in terms of commercial viability of this mega project. {The Airport!}

- There are millions of expatriates belonging to this Golden Triangle who are spread all over the world and who frequently come to their homes and go back, will certainly be using Sialkot airport. Being a rich industrial area, heavy industries are established in Gujranwala, Gujrat, Daska and Sialkot. The industries are eager to provide much needed cargo business to the airport.



It will cater to these places:

Rawalpindi Ring Road



Rawalpindi: Ring Road Project to launch in August

RAWALPINDI: Rawalpindi Development Authority (RDA) is set to launch the Rs18 billion Ring Road Project in the last week of August this year.

Sources told Daily Times on Monday that the feasibility study would be started in March and completed within five months. Three firms have been short-listed for the feasibility that would be contracted out to the successful firm within next two weeks.

The firm would be asked to also conduct feasibility on the Economic Zone along Ring Road to promote and encourage industrial growth. The Punjab government has allocated Rs20 million for the feasibility studies on Ring Road and Economic Zone.

Around 1,084 acres would be purchased for construction of road and another 1,050 acres for the Economic Zone. Each affected person or family would get half kanal land in the Economic Zone in compensation for every four kanals.

The firm had the first design of the four-land Ring Road in hand but continuous delay allowed massive constructions in the project area.

The sources said that there was a growing awareness among the Pindi residents that any further delay in the launch of the project would worsen the city’s traffic problem leading to a virtual jamming of traffic on almost all roads.

According to a traffic study conducted by RDA, around 0.2 million vehicles with around 0.8 million commuters on board will not have to pass through the traffic jungle on Benazir Bhutto Shaheed Road (Murree Road), Airport Road and IJ Principal Road after the completion of the project. The road would provide over 1.50 million people with an easy access to Islamabad and New Islamabad Airport.

It would also contribute towards minimizing environmental degradation and cutting down consumption of fuel most of which goes down the drain while standing in never-ending traffic snarls. aamir yasin
