Work on Lahore Metro will start at the end of this year! some part of it will be underground and some elevated.

And, oddly, while an east-west bypass of Hyderabad connecting to the N5 at its eastern end was constructed, it's not a motorway, and the N5 still uses the old route.

In terms of "motorway" quality, the contrast between the north and south of Pakistan is pretty stark.
M9 is a planned motorway. The current one is called super-highway and is yet to be upgraded to a motorway standard. So what you see currently is NOT a motorway.

I am sure once the superhighway is converted into motorway, its quality will also increase.

What is the massively thick concrete crash barrier for? I've never seen one like that in real life, but there is a picture of an almost identical one on a road in Nigeria.

It's probably just because they felt like being corrupt that day and struck a deal with their friend's concrete company or something.
Also, I have a question... why are Pakistanis afraid of writing Urdu in a larger script? I can barely read the signs...
