The crucial Jaglot-Skardu Road, which connects the Karakoram Highway (KKH) with Skardu, a tourism, trekking, and expedition centre in Gilgit Baltistan, was opened by Prime Minister Imran Khan (GB).
The China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) passes through GB, and the Jaglot-Skardu Road connects KKH with Skardu.
This road’s opening will promote tourist and economic activity in the region and beyond.
The “Upgrading and Widening of Jaglot-Skardu Road (167 km)” was started by the government, and it was inaugurated by Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
Prime Minister Imran Khan also opened Skardu International Airport, in addition to the Jaglot-Skardu Road.
“A big thing happened in Skardu today; these initiatives will alter the lives of local people, and I can envision it,” the Prime Minister remarked while speaking to a crowd. The completion of the Jaglot-Skardu road cut the travel time between Skardu and Gilgit in half, from eight hours to three.
