The Prime Minister of Pakistan Imran approves upgradation of Karachi Quetta Expressway including Chaman Road says CPEC Chairman Asim Bajwa on Wednesday.
The 790 kilometers long Karachi to Quetta highway is the most neglected road connecting two provinces Sindh and Balochistan. The dualization of the Karachi Quetta Expressway will be on Built Operate and Transfer (BOT) basis.
The Karachi Quetta Express way not only will benefit the trade and commerce between two provinces but will also pave a way for safer journey for commuters.
The Backbone of China Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) Balochistan lacks Motorways and Industrial zones.
