Prime Minister Imran Khan inaugurated the long-awaited Peshawar Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) project.

Addressing the inaugural ceremony, the premier said that this was "the best metro bus project in the country".

This will have an impact in Peshawar cause the city has one main artery that stretches from GT Road to Hayatabad, which chokes when under pressure, resulting in people siting in traffic for hours which causes pollution and petrol wastage, he said.

He maintained that the main artery was 27 kilometres long while the feeder routes were 60km. "This means that all of city will be connected," he said, adding that it was a modern transport system covering Peshawar in its entirety.

The premier also admitted to having "reservations" about the project. "I want to say I had reservations about the project.
