Frontier Highways Authority
History

The Frontier Highways Authority was established on August 29, 2001 through NWFP Ordinance No. XIX of 2001. The basic idea of its creation was to Conceive, Plan, and Ensure the Construction, Improvement, Maintenance, and Repair of Provincial Highways and Roads. It will also undertake other communication projects as indicated by the Government of NWFP.

Initially Eight roads with a total Length of 1988 Km were given the status of Provincial Highways. Later on, some of the Provincial Highways were federalized and handed over to the NHA while some more roads were declared as Provincial Highways. Presently, FHA is custodian of 15 Provincial Highways with a total length of 2177 Kms.
