Pakistan rebuilding flood-damaged infrastructure
The work to rebuild highways and bridges damaged by the flooding is expected to cost nearly $219 million.
Funding to help pay for the work is being provided in the shape of a loan worth close to $197 million from the Philippines-based Asian Development Bank (ADB).
Pakistan’s National Highways Authority (NHA) has set out a programme of works that involves repairing and upgrading a total of 212km of road as well as 33 bridges. The project is expected to take 36 months to complete. ■
