Description

The Thakot to Raikot section of the Karakoram Highway is a 281 kilometer long stretch envisioned as a 2-lane highway. The project is for the remaining 136 km of the Thakot-Raikot section. The stretch falls along the new alignment of the Karakoram Highway that falls along four dams planned by the Pakistan's Water and Power Development Authority (WAPDA).
