The project was divided into three parts, two sections of the motorway were completed and opened for the public last year. The authorities opened 47km long section of Hazara Motorway previous year. It covered the areas from Burhan to Shah Maqsood interchange.
The project comprises of five interchanges and many toll plazas. Moreover, previously the motorway in the said area had only two-lanes.
