Hyderabad-Sukkur section: China, S Korea lobbying for M-6 motorway

By Sehrish WasifPublished: July 28, 2016

ISLAMABAD: Chinese and South Korean investors have expressed interest in the Rs163 billion ($1.7 billion) Hyderabad-Sukkur (M-6) section of the Karachi-Lahore motorway, a National Highway Authority official said on Wednesday.

The 296-km stretch is the last missing link on the Karachi-Lahore motorway on which construction work has yet to be started. The government has decided to offer this section on the ‘build-operate-transfer’ (BOT) basis to national or international construction companies through an open bidding process.

Karachi-Hyderabad Motorway: 54 fuel stations working without permit

The National Highway Authority is all set to brief Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif about the bidding process.

NHA spokesman Kashif Zaman told The Express Tribune that a detailed presentation will be given to the PM regarding the need and importance of awarding the contract through BOT.

“After getting his approval, tenders will be advertised in leading newspapers and hopefully within a month the process of awarding the contract will be completed,” he said.

NHA ordered to maintain status quo in M-9 highway

Zaman said the government does not have enough resources to construct this section. “Therefore, the NHA has decided to offer this section on the BOT basis to national or international construction companies through an open bidding process.”

He said the Korean government has also expressed interest in expanding economic relationship with Pakistan, especially in expanding the road network. South Korean ambassador Dr Suh Dong-gu has expressed interest in the Hyderabad-Sukkur motorway and Kalakot-Chitral Road during his meeting with NHA Chairman Shahid Ashraf Tarar held on July 20.

At the terminus of the M9 motorway in Hyderabad, the Karachi-Lahore Motorway will continue onwards from Hyderabad to Sukkur as a six lane controlled-access motorway that will be 296 kilometers long. It will terminate near the Nara Canal, and in turn connect to the next phase of the Karachi-Lahore Motorway to Multan. The planned cost for this project is $2.47 Billion.This section of the motorway will provide high speed road access to interior Sindh, and will be in close proximity to Matiari, Tando Adam, Shahdadpur , Nawabshah, and Khairpur. The construction of this section is likely to begin in April 2016.

The project will consist of seven interchanges, 25 bridges on the Indus river and its canals.The planned route of the motorway runs roughly parallel to the existing four-lane National Highway and two-lane Indus Highway

He said that the network of Motorways was being spread across the country, which will increase the economic growth of Pakistan and result in the generation of employment opportunities across the country. The years ahead will witness a more progressive and developed Pakistan through our sincere and concerted efforts, the PM concluded.The prime minister will perform the inauguration of Sialkot-Lahore Motorway in the last week of this month.

Any idea when the construction is anticipated to begin? One of the articles mentioned March 2017, while December 2016 was also thrown around. This is the last piece of the puzzle to have a continuous motorway from Karachi to Peshawar. It would be great to see it under construction.

Please stick to the topic at hand. There is a highways and motorways thread for general discussion about motorways and also an Islamabad Metro thread.

Construction work of Hyderabad-Sukkur Motorway to start before June


ISLAMABAD, Pakistan: Construction work of 296 km Hyderabad-Sukkur Motorway is likely to start before June 2017 subject to receiving a workable proposal, an official of National Highway Authority (NHA) said on Thursday.

Talking to the state-run news agency in Islamabad, the NHA official said that Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif has approved in principle the construction of Hyderabad-Sukkur Motorway in August and issued directives to the Chairman NHA to start work on the project in March 2017.

The government is undertaking construction of Hyderabad-Sukkur Motorway, on Build-Operate-Transfer (BOT) basis and its estimated cost is over Rs 160 billion.

The motorway project starting from Sukkur will touch Khairpur, Nowshehro Feroze, Nawab Shah, Mitiari, Hala and Jamshoro and terminate at Hyderabad.

The motorway forms part of Peshawar-Karachi Motorway (PKM) which will be key part of trade corridor linking ports of Karachi and Gwadar with China, Afghanistan and Central Asian States.

All the segments of PKM have either been completed or awarded for construction except the Hyderabad-Sukkur motorway link of PKM section.

All the sections of Karachi - Peshawar Motorway (KPM) have either been completed or under construction except this one. What could be the reason?

- I personally feel the cost of Rs 160 billion is quite high so ROI might be an issue. Cost is five times that of Karachi - Hyderabad Motorway (M9) for only a little more than twice the distance with more or less the same sort of terrain. For your reference, the cost of Karachi Hyderabad Motorway is Rs 32 billion. I agree it'll be a completely new alignment so cost of land will be significant too but still cost seems very high for ROI.

- CPEC traffic using eastern corridor might use KPM till Sukkur and then use M8 (Ratodero - Gawadar) section to reach Gawadar and vice versa.

- CPEC traffic wanting to go to Karachi can either use existing National Highway or Indus Highway from Sukkur to Hyderabad and then M9 and vice versa.

I might be wrong here, someone please comment.
