The Bhara Kahu Bypass is a 5.2-kilometer-long (3.2 mi) four-lane highway in Islamabad, Pakistan. It was constructed to provide an alternate route to Murree, Kashmir, and Galiyat, bypassing the congested Bhara Kahu town. The bypass starts at Malpur, Islamabad, and ends at Satra Meet on Murree Road. It has two bridges, four underpasses, one interchange, and seven culverts.
The bypass was constructed by the National Logistics Cell (NLC) at a cost of Rs. 6.5 billion. It was completed in a record time of 10 months, and was inaugurated by Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif on August 11, 2023.
The Bhara Kahu Bypass is expected to significantly reduce traffic congestion on the existing Murree Road. It will also improve the connectivity of Islamabad with the surrounding areas, and boost tourism in the region.
Here are some of the reasons why the Bhara Kahu Bypass was necessary?
- The old Murree Road through Bhara Kahu was heavily congested, especially during peak tourist season.
- The narrowness of the road and numerous encroachments made it difficult for traffic to flow smoothly.
- The bypass will provide an alternate route to Murree, Kashmir, and Galiyat, bypassing the congested Bhara Kahu town.
- The bypass will improve the connectivity of Islamabad with the surrounding areas, and boost tourism in the region.
