PESHAWAR: Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KP) Information Minister Shaukat Yousufzai has said that the Peshawar Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) project will be completed by March 23, ARY News reported on Friday.
In his statement, the minister said the province was lacking number of the buses for the project.
“In order to examine the flaws in the project, the provincial administration was starting its test service”, the minister said.
The minister said, he advised the CM to delay the project inauguration as the province was short of number of the buses for the project.
Yousufzai said Chief Minister Mehmood Khan would only inaugurate the project once its buses reached the country.
Earlier this month, Prime Minister Imran Khan had directed the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa’s (KP) Chief Minster Mahmood Khan to accelerate work on Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) project.
Talking to KP chief minister, who had called on him at his office in Islamabad, PM Imran expressed concerns over the delay in BRT project and had asked him to get completed the project as soon as possible.
He had said that the cause behind the project was to facilitate the masses and no further delay will be tolerated.
