ISLAMABAD: The National Highway Authority (NHA) will soon set up Emergency Response Centers along the national highways in Pakistan, an NHA official said on Saturday.
The official said that initially the Emergency Response Centers would be set up on three highways of Balochistan.
The centers would be set up at Dhana Sar and Meena Bazar along Kuchlak-Dera Ismail Khan Highway (N-50). Response Centers would also be established at Kalat, Surab, Wadh and Kararo along Karachi-Chaman Highway (N-25), Radio Pakistan reported.
Pakistan will become the hub of regional trade after the completion of the under-construction motorways and highways projects in next few years, an NHA official said last Saturday.
General Manager (Design) Asim Amin during an interview said that NHA has been tasked by Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif to complete the ongoing road projects at the earliest.
