5. Project objectives and its relationship with
sector objectives:
o

The objectives of the sector/sub sector as
indicated in the medium term/five year plan
are reproduced. Indicate objectives of the
project and develop a linkage between the
proposed project and sectoral objectives.

In Peshawar, traffic congestion is being experienced
at number of roads especially at the intersections
mainly due to the conflicting traffic movements.
The difficulty in separating the conflicting
movements is due the high volumes of traffic
limited R.O.W and close proximity of private and
public buildings in the vicinity.
The most critical movements at these junctions are
the turning movements which create the major
conflict and the conflicting traffic occupies the
intersections for long period of time. Further all
types of traffic i.e. mechanized traffic and nonmechanized traffic (bicycles and animal drawn
vehicles) use the intersections approaching from
various directions and proceeding towards other
directions. Further as all the traffic crosses the

intersections at grade there is a very significant
volume of conflicting traffic and the intersections
1

are frequently choked, particularly during the peak
hours. Due to the conflicting traffic movements the
intersections capacities are practically much below
the free flowing conditions which could be
achieved by grade separation.
The Provincial Government giving consideration to
the rapidly growing traffic and the frequent traffic
jams being faced on the intersections with in the
provincial capital, Peshawar , conducted feasibility
study for improvement of the below mentioned
intersections by providing vehicular underpasses
or/and flyover so the grade separation of the
conflicting traffic jams could be reduced. The
feasibility studies for improvement of below
mentioned intersections have been completed by
the consultants while the planning & design work
of these intersections is in progress. The
construction work of the below mentioned
intersections shall be taken in hand in a phase-wise
manner.
1. Flyover on Rehman Baba intersection & Bacha

Khan Chowk.
2. Gulbahar – Nishtarabad Intersections on G.T.
Road.
3. Improvement of Intersection at Phase –III
entry, jamrud road, Hayatabad.
4. Spin Jumat – Islamia College – Iqra Chawk
Intersections on Jamrud Road
5. Hakimullahjan Intersection Opposite Jinnah
Park
6. Khyber - Warsak road Intersection (Michni
Chowk)
7. Board Intersection on Jamrud Road.
8. Tehkal Payan Intersection on Jamrud Road.
9. Haji Camp Intersection on G.T. Road
10. Deans intersection (Underpass)
11. Intersections at City Circular road (Ramdas,
Lahori & Gunj chowk)
The ADP 2010-11, 2011-12 & 2012-13 included
construction of Flyover at the intersections
mentioned at serial No. 1 & 2. Original PC-I for
construction of Flyover at Gulbahar – Nishtar Abad
Intersections on G.T. Road, Peshawar mentioned
at serial No. 2 above was framed on the basis of
CSR 2009 and was approved by the PDWP at a
cost of Rs: 670.456 million on 19/01/2011. Later
on the same was revised mainly to include 19%
premium quoted by the lowest bidder and was
approved by PDWP at a cost of Rs. 869.722
million on 27/03/2012. The PC-I for the Scheme
has now been revised for the 2nd time at a Cost of
Rs: 919.673 million to include;

2

Rehabilitation of Drainage system of
adjoining areas (Nishterabad & Bilal town)
as per design and prevailing rates.

Beautification & Land Scaping of the area

under the flyover.

Variation in the quantum & scope of the
work during execution of the project as per
site requirement.

The objectives of the project are as under,
i.
ii.
iii.
iv.
v.
vi.
o

In case of revised Projects, indicate
objectives of the project if different from
original PC-I.

Ensure grade separation of conflicting
traffic thereby enhancing the traffic capacity
of the intersections.
Achieve uninterrupted traffic flow on
existing urban roads by reducing traffic
congestion & delays.
Ensure design speed,
Improve traffic & pedestrian safety,
Ensure reduction in smoke and exhaust
emitted by slow moving & idle traffic,
Improve environmental conditions.
There is no change in the objectives of the
Project and the objectives are the same as
mentioned above.

6. Description,
justification,
technical
parameters and technology transfer aspects
(enclose feasibility study for projects costing
Rs. 300 million and above)
o

Describe the project and indicate existing
facilities in the area and justify the
establishment of the Project.

As explained above, all the intersections are
currently at grade whereas some of them have also
been signalized but extremely high volume of
traffic has made it very vulnerable to congestion
and saturation even during off-peak hours. Some
minor at-grade improvements were made to the
intersections in the past but those are inadequate to
meet the demands of the current traffic influx.
In view of the current traffic congestion on various
roads of Peshawar City, the Government of Khyber
Pakhtunkhwa intends to improve 11-No.
intersections mentioned at S/No. 5 above through
construction of Flyovers/underpasses in a phasewise manner. The Scheme caters for improvement
Gulbahar-Nishtar Abad Intersections on G.T road
Peshawar through construction of Flyover which at
present exhibit severe traffic jams during peak
hours.
