Supplements: FWO - Building on the Foundations of Prosperity


Post disaster management is always a huge challenge. Disasters like earthquakes, floods, landslides or even in case of road accidents, strike with little or no warning. This specially is true for under developed and developing nations, where adequate warning system, disaster shelters and protective works are not available in abundance.

The devastating earthquake led to a massive devastation in Azad Kashmir & Khyber Pakhtunkhwa. The roads leading to the affected areas were either washed away or were completely blocked due to heavy landslides. Two Engineer Groups of FWO were immediately mobilized and massive relief efforts were initiated within minimum possible time. The roads and pathways were opened on war footing to enable the relief aid to reach far flung areas of our rugged Northern Areas and Kashmir. The immediate response and actions taken by FWO were pivotal in rescuing thousands.
Pakistan Army Engineers in 1959 were assigned the challenge of constructing a 291 Km road connecting Swat with Chilas along River Indus, called the Indus Valley Road (IVR) which was completed in 1965. During 1966, the Government decided to raise the status of the IVR to that of an international highway and extend it right up to the Border with People's Republic of China; The Karakoram Highway (KKH). Consequently, the Frontier Works Organization (FWO) was raised under the auspices of Army Engineers to take on this daunting and challenging task ever undertaken by a construction firm in Pakistan.
ImagePakistan is a land of amazing beauty. The geographical variety bestowed on our land has gifted us with the world's loftiest mountains, largest glaciers, placid lakes and sun kissed deserts. However most of it was in the far frontier and inaccessible due to lack of communication infrastructure.
