The transport infrastructure can contribute towards poverty reduction, economic growth and inclusive social development.NHA is following the vision of the prime minister in developing infrastructure projects through private sector on Build Own Operate (BOO) and Build Operate Transfer (BOT) basis.
For the first time in the history of Pakistan, three BOT projects costing Rs 91 billion have been awarded which will generate Rs366 billion over the concession period.
In Pakistan, roads are the prime source of the transport system, accounting for the bulk of national passenger traffic and freight movement. The increasing trend in road traffic, both passenger and freight, dictates much faster development of the road network. Accordingly, the PSDP allocation to NHA was raised from Rs.50 billion in 2011-12 to Rs.112 billion in 2014-15.
