-Asian Development Bank (ADB) bought by PTI?

How would ADB which carries out massive projects all over Asia can assess Peshawer BRT construction? They must have been bought by PTI!! 🤫🤫🤫🤫

This should quell all the Patwaris and BhatWaris spreading propaganda recently! 😒😒

And all the snowflake Youthias out there: Don't turn into another Patwari. Always consult the RIGHT authority on the matter for right perspective

Peshawar BRT: ADB experts express satisfaction over pace of work



PESHAWAR: Experts of Asian Development Bank (ADB) expressed their satisfaction on the provincial capital’s Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) project and declared it as being at par with international standards.

Projects of such nature were normally completed in 24 to 30 months all over the world, while Peshawar Development Authority (PDA) completed the BRT project in a record time 15 months, they said.

The ADB officials were interacting with the media during informal discussion over a test ride on BRT route with K-P Information Minister Shaukat Yousafzai and other officials.
They said that the architects of the projects were facing issues in the design near the reach-1 and 2 (Gulbahar and Tehkal) which compelled the engineer to modify things at specific points keeping in mind the flow of the traffic in certain areas.

Responding to a query Yousufzai said: “we have no plan of running the project in front Sunehri Masjid (mosque), but due to protest and agitation of the traders’ unions we asked the PDA to run the elevated point opposite Saddar bazzar.”

On the security point of view, Peshawar is categorised as a red zone in the list of the red-zone cities of the world due to its security issues. This is the major reason international firms and donors are hesitant to invest here. However, Asian Development Bank investment in such a large scale project speaks volumes of the current provincial government’s success, Yousafzai said.

He went on to say that due to non-availability of technical labour in the province the government had to hire services of labourers and contractors from Punjab to ensure the quality of construction of the project, while ensuring to safeguard the heritage of the old city of Peshawar in the project.

On the regular changes being made on the project Yousufzai explained that the project, being the only one of its kind in the province, the city has been structured on new lines, and added that soon the fully operated project is to be inaugurated for the public.

I'm from Peshawar, which is a much better place to live than it was during ANP/MMA/PML/PPP governments.
Despite almost all newbies in the PTI team, they delivered more than expected.

I wish some gentleman from the PTI official media team post BEFORE & AFTER PTI government scenario of Peshawar, and the rest of KPK in pictorial format ,,,This will definitely elaborate PTI achievements in a much much better way...

Project has some design flaws like it should have been over head in some places like university road, shouldn’t have gone in hayatabad where feeder buses could have done the job.... but all in all it was the first big infrastructure development that Peshawar saw... It also hopefully has the capacity to self sustain ....... Next project should be to revive railway line which runs from city to landikotal..... It can cater to local transport too....

"ensuring to safeguard the heritage of the old city of Peshawar in the project"...Konsa heritage safeguad karna hai ? Sunehri masjid? Ye hai Peshawar ka heritage?

"non-availability of technical labour in the province"... Poorey KPK ki 30 million abadi mein technical labour nahi mila? KPK mein to 6 saal se "education emergency lagi huwi hai"

"that soon the fully operated project is to be inaugurated for the public."....Phir lollypop pakra di PTI zombies ko. Soon the project is to be inaugurated.....tera soon 2 saal baad aega?

Fully agreed. Especially the thought to revive railway line from Peshawar to Landi Kotal is good one.

سنہری مسجد قدیم عمارتوں میں نہیں آتی بلکہ قلعہ بالا حصار، قدیم خیبر بازار، لیڈی ریڈنگ ہسپتال، شعبہ بازار ، نوتھیہ بازار کی قدیم عمارتیں، میوزیم وغیرہ بہت سی جگہیں اس کے راستے میں آتے تھے۔۔۔

خیبر باشار، شبہ بازار، نوتھیہ اور صدر بازار سے تو عام گاڑی نہیں گزر سکتی انہوں پوری سڑک گزار دی۔۔۔ گو کہ مجھے زیادہ پسند۔ نہیں ہے۔

Pfff... How hard is it to lie to and bribe the reprentatives of ADB.

If you see shit, smell shit but the experts tell you that it's food, will you eat it?? PTI followers probably will.

اشین ڈویلپمنٹ بینک کے مطابق یہ پراجیکٹ ٢٠٢١ میں مکمل ہوگا یعنی ابھی دو سال مزید لگنے ہیں تو ان کے لئے تو اس کی سپیڈ بہترین جا رہی ہے لیکن پاکستانی اس کو کے پی حکومت کے بیانات کی روشنی میں دیکھ رہے ہیں، اگر خٹک حکومت پہلے دن ہی کہہ دیتی کہ یہ پراجیکٹ ٢٠٢١ میں مکمل ہوگا تو یہ سارا سیاپا نہ ڈلتا ، اب ہر تین مہینے بعد ایک نئی تاریخ دے دی جاتی ہے جو شہریوں کو ذہنی اذیت دیتی ہے ، کس نے کہا تھا کہ چھ مہینے میں میٹرو تیار کرنے کا اعلان کرو؟؟

Absolutely agree with you on this.

A well planned project should have accurate dates.
If they said 2 years initially and finished in 18-21 months, that would've been an achievement.
Even if they got hit with a few delays, it would be clearly acceptable. But right now they have made mockery of themselves.
