ISLAMABAD: To enhance its revenue, the National Highway Authority (NHA) has initiated the Geographic Information System (GIS) survey project and the development of its national network’s geodatabase. It was initiated last June and will be completed by the end of this year.
The digitizing of the Right of Way (ROW) of the NHA network will make it easy to conduct business for their staffers. The pilot section, from Rawalpindi Soan Bridge to Kharian (N-5), has been completed.
The project is divided into three phases. In the first phase, the listing of commercial amenities on Karachi-Multan-Lahore-Peshawar National Highway (N-5) was complete, and 12500 notices were issued in November 2019.
In the second phase, the verification of commercial amenities at Hassanabdal-Thakot-Khunjerab (N-35), Indus Highway (N-55), Larkana-Naudero-Lakhi Road (N-105), Larkana-Moenjodaro Road (N-155), Larkana-Kamber-Shahdadkot (N-455) and Ratodero-Naudero-Road (N-655), is still underway.
In the third phase, a field survey of Makran-Coastal Highway, Karachi-Kalat-Quetta-Chaman, Lakpass Taftan Highway (N-40), Sukkur-Sibbi–Quetta Highway (N-65), Multan-DG Khan-Qila Saifullah (N-70), Gharo-Keti Bandar (N-110), Hyderabad-Khokhrapar (N-120), Larkana-Nasirabad (N-255), and Sakrand-Shaheed Benazirabad (N-305) is taking place and is expected to be completed by the end of this month. After completion, a noticeable increase in NHA revenue is expected.
