Malir river Expressway Project to connect DHA city to Airport and City centre of Karachi.

The proposed expressway — a 47-kilometre-long dual carriageway will cater to the needs of traffic coming from DHA city & Hyderabad. Each side of the carriageway along the embankments of the Malir River will have three lanes.
