KP to Start Metro Bus in Peshawar by December 2017

The Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa (KP) government that is currently led by PTI has decided to initiate the the Peshawar Metro Bus Service project in April. The Metro service is expected to be completed by December of this year if it stays on schedule.

The Director General of the Peshawar Development Authority, Manzoor Wattoo, announced in a press conference that the project will take around 10 months to complete.

The construction of the Metro will be done in phases. The first phase of the construction includes the Chamkani-Balahisar track. The Cantt-Aman Chowk track will be completed in the second phase and the track that is leading towards the Phase-III in Hayatabad will finally be completed in the third phase of the construction.

According to a report, the Peshawar Metro Bus would be just any other Metro Bus in any other city but the biggest difference is that the Peshawar Metro Bus won’t have any elevated section but instead the whole route will be at street level.

Funding Options

The spokesman for the KP government, Mushtaq Ghani, reported that the provincial authorities informed the PTI chairman, Imran Khan, that the project could be completed at a cost of just Rs. 14 billion, however, reports claim that the cost is now being stated as Rs. 40 billion. The official cost of the project is yet to be confirmed by the KP government.

However, the KPK government is not looking for any kind of from “foreign donors”. The spokesman added that the the funds required for the construction of the Metro Bus will come from the KPK government’s own financial resources.

We will generate our own funds for Peshawar Metro Bus Service project that would be completed at low price as compared to that utilised in such projects in couple of cities in Punjab – Mushtaq Ghani
