Soan Bridge to Open Ahead of Schedule: FWO

Soan Bridge

The National Highway Authority’s (NHA) Soan Bridge expansion project is slated for completion by August 31, 2024. However, the Frontier Works Organisation (FWO) has announced that due to dedicated teamwork and round-the-clock efforts, the bridge and roads will be open to all traffic types from June 10 onwards.

The Leh-Soan Bridge expansion project was originally awarded to M/S AK Communication in December 2017 but faced termination in April 2022 due to inefficiency. Consequently, the contract was re-tendered and awarded to the FWO in December last year.

In related news, Punjab Chief Minister Maryam Nawaz recently inaugurated Punjab’s largest Multan Road Interchange and Ring Road Southern Loop (SL) 3.

Following CM Maryam Nawaz’s directive, the toll tax on SL 3 has been temporarily waived for one month, allowing citizens to travel for free. Additionally, she instructed immediate action on the SL 4 project and reviewed the road from Addaplot to Multan Road Interchange.
