This project provides financing for the construction of a new 50km high-speed 4 lane expressway called the Peshwawar Torkham Economic Trade Corridor. Components include improving the existing Peshawar-Torkham Road which goes through the Khyber Pass, creating a master plan for regional development, and building the new expressway as an extension of the Karachi-Lahore-Islamabad-Peshawar Trans-Pakistan Expressway System as well as part of the Peshawar-Kabul-Dushanbe Motorway.
This project aims to connect Central Asian markets through Afghanistan to the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor, and is part of the Central Asian Regional Economic Corridors (CAREC) plan. The project is expected to require land acquisition and resettlement of communities living in the project area.
