The KPK Planning and Development Department (PDD) is developing a mobile app called the “Pothole Fixer”. The app will allow the KPK public to report potholes and broken roads to the relevant authorities. Once ready, PDD will launch this app first in Peshawar as a pilot project.
According to details, the application is based on PDD’s existing GIS platform and will link up on the basis of the real-time coordinates of the users.
Once launched, users will be able to upload pictures of potholes in real-time. All pictures will be automatically shared with relevant departments including Communication and Works, KP Highways Authority, and National Highway Authority to repair the broken roads.
The KPK government has established GIS Cells in 35 districts in the province. These cells have also mapped a total of 35,817 locations against 8,230 schemes of the Annual Development Program since 2017-18.
