Description

This project targets a mountainous area of Punjab in Pakistan, to widen and reconstruct a 34km section of N-70 (Rakhi Gaaj – Bewata section in Punjab Province). The existing conditions on the road are poor, and therefore require improvements to increase connectivity, with a view of tieing in the region with future prospective CPEC projects. The two distinct aspects of the JICA supported project include the engineering and civil works, alongside consultancy services related to monitoring, design and supervision, alongside other consulting elements.
