    Narrative Description of Project:

    The road section between Rakhi Gajj and Bewata (approximately 33 km long), an abrupt mountainous section of N 70, has been restricting safe and smooth traffic flow mainly due to hazardous condition in terms of rocks and debris falling or sliding from the coarse weathered mountain slopes. In such undulating section, traffic including heavily loaded trucks and buses had to tackle with narrow road width. As part of the development program, NHA, with the assistance of CTI Engineering International Co. Ltd (CTII), Japan planned for strengthening and widening of this Section focusing on the improvement of the mountain route section to eliminate traffic bottlenecks to assure traffic safety and smooth traffic flow. The improvement of this section is very important to facilitate mobility of both people and goods between the provinces of Balochistan and Punjab on N 70 highway. Since the widening and alignment changes required land acquisition, therefore, NHA prepared a Resettlement Action Plan (RAP) in compliance with the legal requirements of Government of Pakistan.
