All the available resources were utilised and possible efforts were made to complete the work despite multiple challenges including dilapidated access road, non-availability of heavy machinery and communication service, crossing of flood water and continuous land sliding etc.
The NTDC spokesman further said that rehabilitation work on Sibbi-Quetta transmission line is also being carried out on war footing basis. He added that the flash floods have caused loss to NTDC infrastructure as well in some areas.
