A budget worth nearly US$473 million will be used for work on the China Pakistan Economic Corridor. This will form a key portion of Pakistan’s Public Sector Development Programme for the 2016/2017 period. The Burhan-Hakla section is expected to require two years to construct and will be 285km long. This stretch will run through Rehmani Khel, Rokhri, Mianwali, Sawan and Pindi Gheb. The DI Khan section stretch of the highway should be complete by mid-2018, while the stretch from Gwadar to Surab should be ready for traffic by the end of this year.
