Work on construction of Lowari Tunnel has almost been completed and it will be opened for traffic shortly.

Sources of the National Highway told our Peshawar correspondent that work on the Tunnel was resumed under the directive of Prime Minister Muhammad Nawaz Sharif about three years back.

The Prime Minister took keen interest in the completion of the tunnel and provided twenty five billion rupees for the project. 

After opening of the tunnel, Chitral will remain linked with rest of the country throughout the year. It will reduce journey time between Peshawar and Chitral from fourteen to seven hours.
