National Highway Authority (NHA) is going to hold survey to connect Astore to Azad Kashmir.
This was stated by NHA authorities during a briefing given to Standing Committee of National Assembly on Communications in Islamabad on Wednesday.
The meeting was presided over by the Chairman Muhammad Muzamil Qureshi.
It was briefed to the Committee that the Skardu-Gilgit road will be constructed in a shortest period of seven months.
The Committee showed its displeasure on the fact that there are several encroachments on the right of way of NHA especially on N-50 but NHA is not going to remove any encroachment because of one reason or the other.
The Committee directed that all of the encroachments should be removed without any further delay. The Committee also directed that recommendations of the Committee should be implemented in letter and spirit.
