It will be connected to CPEC at a meager distance of 6 kilometers through N-125 and will provide alternate connectivity between Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province and Islamabad Capital Territory, which will result in socio-economic uplift of area. The road will also connect with under construction Hattar Economic Zone and will boost economic activities related to Industries, trade, agriculture, mines and minerals and social forestry. It will also expand the traffic capacity which will be helpful in minimizing the traffic load on N-35.
