CM and Akbar Ayub take cognizance of report on bridge caving

Chitral Times Report

PESHAWAR: KP Chief Minister Pervez Khattak and CMís Advisor for C&W Akbar Ayub Khan have taken strong notice of media reports about caving in a portion of Under-construction Bridge on Pajaggi Road near Bacha Khan Markaz Peshawar.

They soon after listening about the report contacted Provincial Secretary Communication to visit the site to ascertain it and taking action against the concerned officials responsible for it. Hence Secretary Communication and Works (C&W) Engr Muhammad Asif Khan rushed to the spot along with other high ups of the department and examined the portion of under-construction bridge that was temporarily opened for traffic. He found the media report correct as rifts had been emerged in deck slab of the bridge. So he immediately ordered inquiry against the three responsible officers viz XEN, SDO and SE (sub-engineer) besides issuing instructions for the reconstruction of the bridge.

Meanwhile KP Chief Minsterís Advisor for C&W Akbar Ayub Khan has assured that not only the bridge would be reconstructed and the responsible officers in its substandard construction would be punished but work on widening of Pajaggi Road would be completed on crash grounds basis.
