Excellent work dear.Can you please draw your suggested route on the map, which doesn't involve a bunch of "Kallar Kahars"?
Not many trucks take the Kallar Kahar path. Even travelling on GT road, you can notice the plight of loaded trucks when climbing hills near Domelli / Sohawa.
In my opinion, this is the best possible route they've selected. Easier & faster to build, maintain and connected with airport, capital and KPK. And no steep mountains (Analyzed it on google maps, maximum altitude along this path is around 420m, while the existing Peshawar -DI khan highway (which seems the most optimized route in this part, btw) passes through steep mountains with altitudes in 850+ range)
First target should be to make Gawadar operational and let the shipments rolling. And DI Khan-Peshawar highway may be expanded if traffic load increases (No loaded truck will use it for sure, considering another Kallar Kahar near Darra Adam Khel area
This is what the people dont understand (or dont try to understand). Usually people consider roads to be built in straight lines drawn with rulers, but in actual it is not this much simple.
Almost similar is the case of western route vs eastern route comparison. one passes mostly through plains areas, other one is mostly hilly and undulating land.
