Trees cut to widen approach road to Lowari Tunnel — 4 Comments

  1. Probably the only time it is wise to cut trees is when making way for a road. But then as a compensation twice the cut amount of trees should be planted immediately and looked after.

  2. AKRSP philosophy is just a imagination, we used to call it holistic approach , probably Shah karez sahab is forgetting the term , but it is just an imagination, or could be applicable only in country like Canada where there is only land without people. We together could not find any way to implement this imaginary philosophy while working together with AKRSP, now remembering the past we want to impress people with using the terminologies we ourselve could never try, or succeed to implement anywhere in chitral and gilgit. So please let the people work, don’t make it shipishon channel or Nehr e athak. or hundreds of mini power stations five of them were only in Ayun , and all or 95 % of them disappeared within a year or two. Or we can take numerous access roads now in use of Aliens time to time.

  3. Environment and Development both must be considered in such constructions. It is very strange that in a mega project such as Lowari Tunnel we never heard of anything like Environmental Assessment. It is foolish on the part of planners not to carryout such a study, it is more foolish if study done and laid aside as a show piece without taking into account the remedial measures (if any) for environmental losses. Someone must throw light on this aspect since the widening of approach road on either side of the tunnel is currently in progress.

  4. We need a wide road in this risky area to avoid the possible road accident in winter days..it z a gud initiative frm the NHA authority…
