@Moderators
Should this be under 'Transportation and Infrastructure' or under 'Irrigation' super thread?

Probably in the irrigation thread. Once all the info has been posted I might move the posts there.

WTF is taking it so long?! We've seen 3 Presidents come and go since they started this project. Looks like they haven't done anything for 7 years. Is work done on the Punjab side and still ongoing on the Balochistan side?

I sat down and followed the Canal on Google Earth. Relied on Imagery data from late 2012. Seems like 70-80% of the work on the Punjab side is done except for in the Rajanpur district where huge chunks of the Canal were missing and disconnected from the rest of the project. As the Canal entered Balochistan, Work seemed to stop abruptly south-west of Sui, Dera Bugti. You'd find dugouts or linings in some parts before indicating work but here, It just halted at the end. The whole thing went on for 340 km. I'd say work is about 50 % done considering how they haven't done anything on the Balochistan side.

Fresh updates would be appreciated. Although, knowing Pakistan, It's probably still the same.

Great Work Mansoor! Here have a cup of fresh water from the Kachhi Canal

I never knew the canal is planned to cover such a large area for irrigation, untill i saw this map. Another good thing is that its cemented, hopefully helping to reduce water-logging and salinity.

And it's supposed to go on for another 160 km. This is a huge project. It's tributaries will give us a lot of land to irrigate. Hope they finish it soon for Balochistan's sake.
