NHA plans to extend Lahore-Sialkot Motorway to Kharian
ISLAMABAD - National Highway Authority (NHA) is planning to extend the Lahore-Sialkot Motorway (LSM) up to Kharian by the construction of a new motorway from Sialkot to Kharian under the Build Operator and Transfer (BOT) model.

An official of the National Highway Authority said that the new motorway would be beginning from the end-point of the Lahore to Sialkot Motorway at Sambrial, hence giving Kharian a motorway connectivity to Lahore.

The Lahore-Sialkot motorway is also built on the BOT model and the project would be reducing the distance between Lahore and Sialkot and would also be providing connectivity to remote areas with

big cities.

The mega project would not just be providing faster inter-city traveling but would also enhance economic conditions of the area. It would also be opening multiple opportunities for employment in the

region.

The Lahore-Sialkot motorway would be starting from Sahowala-Sambrial and would be ending at Kala Shah Kaku passing through Daska, Kamonki, and Gujranwala.

ISLAMABAD – Pakistani rupee finally ended its losing streak against US dollar on Tuesday, gaining Rs4.43 after massive depreciation over the last week.

During the intra-day trading, the rupee was hovering at 266.75 with an appreciation of around 1.07 percent as talks between Pakistan and IMF underway for a stalled bailout programme.

Earlier on Monday, the rupee plunged by Rs7 and the greenback touched all-time high of Rs272. Last week, the local currency dropped by Rs24.54 in the interbank market – the largest single-day depreciation in more than two decades.

Finance experts linked the rupee’s recovery to exporters offloading some of their proceeds as remittances and export continued days after dollar cap was removed.

The country of over 220 million is facing a worst economic crisis with the forex reserved held by the country’s central bank remaining at critical $3.68 billion which were not enough to cover a month's import.
