The six-lane (3 for each direction) motorway project includes 19 interchanges, 2 tunnels at Dara Adam Khel (5.6 km) and Banda Daud Shah (1.6 km) and 113 major structures.  This section of the national motorway will start off from Chamkani area of Peshawar and pass-through Darra Adam Khel, Kohat, Hangu, Karak, Bannu and Lakki Marwat to finally end up at Dera Ismail Khan.   

According to the PC-I details, the motorway project will be completed within four years at an estimated cost of EUR1.40bn (PKR276 bn).
