It is to be noted here that the Malakand division commissioner had promised to rehabilitate the Bahrain-Kalam Road in two days.
During his visit to Swat district, he issued directions that heavy traffic should be avoided on the road, for it is not yet ready for that. He also advised the travelers to obey the traffic rules to avoid prolonged traffic jams on Bahrain-Kalm Road.
He also appreciated the efforts of the local administration, Pakistan Army Corps of Engineers, FWO and NHA.
“The rehabilitation of Bahrain-Kalam Road will speed up the relief operations to Mittaltan, Gabral, Ariani and other areas,” he stated.
