Nawaz Sharif to inaugurate Karachi-Lahore Motorway on Dec 19

ISLAMABAD, Pakistan: The National Assembly was informed on Thursday that Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif will lay foundation stone of Karachi-Lahore Motorway on December 19, 2015.

During the question hour in the House on Thursday, the Minister of State for Parliamentary Affairs Shaikh Aftab Ahmad told that Karachi-Lahore Motorway will cost Rs680 billion and will be completed in 30 months.

The State minister further told that House that funds have been allocated for the construction of various roads under China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC).

The Karachi-Lahore Motorway is part of the $46 billion CPEC, aimed at upgrading and expanding Pakistani infrastructure. The CPEC will link Pakistan’s southwestern Gwadar Port to China’s northwestern autonomous region of Xinjiang via a vast network of highways and railways.

Earlier in March 2015, the prime minister laid the foundation stone of first phase of Karachi-Lahore motorway project which included the Karachi-Hyderabad motorway. The phase from Karachi to Hyderabad will be completed at a cost of Rs36 billion in 2.5 years.

The Karachi–Lahore Motorway sometimes referred to as ‘KLM’ is a 1,152 km high-speed, access-controlled, 6-lane motorway project. The project will facilitate transit between Karachi and other cities including Hyderabad, Matiari, Tando Adam, Shahdadpur, Nawabshah, Khairpur, Sukkur, Pano Aqil, Ghotki, Abaro, Sadiqabad, Rahim yar Khan, Zahir Pir, Jalalpur Pirwala, Multan, Khanewal, Abdul Hakim, Pir Mahal, Samundri, Jaranwala and Nankana Sahib.

Once the Karachi-Lahore motorway is completed, Karachi will be linked to Multan, Faisalabad, Lahore, Islamabad, Rawalpindi, Peshawar, Gilgit Baltistan, Azad Kashmir directly through 6-lane high speed, access-controlled road network.

The motorway will also link to the 6-lane Hazara Motorway, stretching from Islamabad/ Rawalpindi to Mansehra. The road will be linked to the high-speed Karakoram Highway (KKH), partly under construction.

    Dear all colleague’s,
    Quite azam Muhammad Ali jinnah became this city as a capital of pakistan.
    Karachi was so well established and well planed clean city.
    But unfortunatly capital of pakistan shifted to ISLAMABAD.all progressive litrary bearocracy shifted as well while Sindhi waderey, land lord and Landgrabers coup KARACHI and hold it till today.
    They never own this city while this city is a revenue Engin for pakistan.they are using this city as GOLDEN BIRDS.
    IT SHOULD REMAIN AS A ECONOMIC CAPITAL NOT IN WORDS ONLY IT SHOULD BE IN GROUND IN THE FORM OF ITS DEVELOPMENT.
    We ask one thing??????
    IS KARACHI A PART OF PAKISTAN?
    Kindly give importance to this city for its development as economic Capital.While KARACHI IS 3 TIMES BIGGER THAN LAHORE.
    All projects launched and complete in Lahore.
    In 1995 motorway starts from Lahore to Islamabad while karachi is a gate way of pakistan it gives 70% revenue in tax.There is no motorways till today.
    All roads are destroyed.look like village
    There is no minister from karachi in federal and sindh cabnet.
    As karachites we feel sense of depreciation and injustice with karachi in launching of mega projects.
    While 6 mega projects are going in Lahore not even a single projects for KARACHI. There is no justice here.
    Only one mega project can do very easily in small bujgget Like 1billion $ while Orange train spend 2billion $.
    Like KARACHI CITCULAR RAILWAY.
