No signs of any gr work starting but they are talking of completion by 2017.
Btw, i am still unable to understand that
--> M-4 is already u/c (at snails pace though) and proposed alignment of M-5 onwards is already done.
--> N-5 is in good enough shape. although it needs an alternate for goods transportation and long route travelers, but M-4, M-5 etc will provide that alternate.
--> so what is the requirement of an all together new motorway.

Lets suppose, they want to connect Lahore with Karachi by Motorway. Its possible solution are:
--> It is already connected via Pindi Bhattian. although it is not the shortest route.
--> They can build Motorway from Lahore till Gojra or Shorkot or Khanewal (whichever suits) to optimize the distance.

Although no authentic news on real intentions of NHA / govt has come out. but, i am quite sure that they are planning something like this:

--> Old motorway alignment will only be built till M-4 (Faisalabad, Gojra, Shorkot, Khanewal, Multan)
--> New Motorway i.e. Lahore-Karachi Motorway will be built via Lahore-Nankana-Mamu Kanjan-Abdul Hakim. It will join M-4 somewhere between Shorkot and Khanewal.
--> From Multan onwards, it will be new aligment only i.e. Jalapur Pirwala, Zahirpir, Rahim Yar Khan etc etc. Old alignment i.e. Muzaffargarh, DG Khan etc is not going to be built.

If they keep their promise and finish the motorway from lahore to Karachi in 2018. I will eat a portion of 1 km motorway.
I surely hope they will because that will be record breaking and marvelous

It will extend onwards from M4. There's not going to be a separate motorway from Multan to Lahore. This is all misinformation by the government media cells.

I guess the Karachi-Hyderabad motorway is being built apart from the minor issue that there is no contractor.

Obviously it's a low priority project even though it's the busiest highway in the country.

IMO, busiest parts are:
N5: Lahore-Okara Section esp Lahore-Pattoki section
Lahore-Faisalabad road
N5: Lahore-Gujranwala section

Lahore-Gujranwala section is nicely maintained and carpeted, thats why it looks less busy than Multan road which is in a bad condition. Providing that traffic flow depends on the condition of that road. But I might be wrong, since I don't travel more often outside Lahore.

It seems like they've decided to just add an extra lone on the Karachi-Hyderabad super highway without making it a proper motorway. The spending on it has been reduced from Rs. 25 billion to Rs. 6 billion.

BEFORE

Malaysian firm to upgrade Karachi-Hyderabad Highway
April 23, 2012

ISLAMABAD – The Malaysian construction firm, Binapuri Holdings, will upgrade the Karachi-Hyderabad Highway to a motorway at the cost of Rs 24.93 billion on Build-Operate-Transfer (BOT) basis in three years.

The NHA signed a concession agreement with the Malaysian company in January for the upgradation of four-lane Karachi-Hyderabad Super Highway to a six-lane motorway. The contractor is bound to achieve financial close within six months of signing the agreement. The 136-kilometer motorway will have seven interchanges, two service areas and sixteen toll plazas. The NHA in 2011 had advertised for an open competition among the interested parties for the construction of the motorway. Several companies, including NLC, BINAPURI Holding Malaysia, EOBI, SAMBO, CRBC China and a Turkish construction company submitted their proposals.

After detailed financial and technical evaluation, the proposal of M/s Binapuri Holding was accepted and the NHA Executive Board awarded the contract to the company on BOT basis with concessionaire period of 28 years, including three-year construction period. The Karachi-Hyderabad Highway is the most vibrant highway in the country with around 23,000 vehicles using it every day. The Binapuri has a good track record and it has constructed three major highways in India, including Vijayawada-Eluru Expressway, Tada-Nellore Expressway in Andhra Pradesh and Chittorgarh-Mangalwar Highway in Rajasthan.

NOW

NHA to convert Super Highway into Motorway on BOT basis

The project will cost Rs 6.3 billion and the scope of work includes expansion of the road from four to six lanes and provision of service areas. In September 2006, the authority had signed a concession agreement for construction of the 136 km M-9 with Standard Construction but the contract was cancelled next year as the firm failed to complete financial close in time.
