The road was constructed between 1968 – 1978 by the brave men of Frontier Works Organization who still maintain this road. This is possibly the biggest ever feet of Pakistan Army in the development of the country.

The road was build by the joint efforts of Pakistan who built the road and China who built the numerous bridges along the road.
