The Hub-Dureji-Dadu Motorway project, which would be a part of the southbound route from Islamabad to Karachi, will link more cities in the nation to the highway system. For a feasibility study and a thorough design for the M-7 Motorway, the NHA has requested consultation services. The road will include six service facilities and is projected to lessen traffic on M-6, according to Project Concept-1 (PC-1).
The groundwork for the project was recently inaugurated by Prime Minister (PM) Shehbaz Sharif, and it will be connected to the recently opened 306-kilometer Sukkur-Hyderabad Motorway (M-6). The Peshawar-Karachi Motorway, which would connect Pakistan’s major cities, has one more segment: Sukkur-Hyderabad.
Several south and northbound motorway networks are being built in Pakistan as part of the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC), which would allow trade between China and Gwadar in Balochistan. Pakistan is anticipated to create a complex rail and road network as part of the project.
