Any updated info about the completion of this projects?

1st section(Fsd-Gojra 58 km) of M-4 is expected to open in 2nd week of December 2014. While 4th section (Multan-Khanewal 54km) is expected to open in mid 2015. Remaining 2 sections are now merged with Karachi-Lahore motorway.


Work to start on M-9 (Karachi-Hyderabad---136km---6 lane) in last week of December 2014. First motorway to be built under Public Private Partnership.


Groundbreaking of E-35 (Hassanabdal-Mansehra Expressway---package 1---49 km) in last week of December 2014.


NHA directed to expedite infrastructure projects, motorways


Quote:
ISLAMABAD: Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif has directed that major infrastructure projects, including motorways which would improve communication across the country, should be completed at the earliest.

He made these remarks during a briefing given to him by Chairman National Highway Authority (NHA) Shahid Ashraf Tarar at the PM’s House on Saturday.

The meeting was informed that the NHA was following the projects through private sector on Build Own Operate (BOO) and Build Operate Transfer (BOT) basis.

The NHA chairman informed the meeting that for the first time in the history of Pakistan, three BOT projects costing Rs91 billion have been rewarded which will generate Rs366 billion over the concession period.

Tarar said that construction of Karachi-Hyderabad motorway will start in the last week of December while groundbreaking of motorway E-35 (Burhan-Havelian) will be carried out in the last week of December.

The meeting noted that Naluchi Bridge in Muzzafarabad and M-4 (Faisalabad-Gojra) were almost complete and would be ready for inauguration in the second week of December.

The NHA was directed that work on Karachi-Hyderabad motorway and Khanewal-Lahore motorway should be completed as soon as possible without compromising on the issues of transparency and international standards.

The meeting was informed that Pindi Bhattian to Faisalabad motorway was being planned to be converted from existing four lanes into a six-lane motorway.

The NHA was also directed that a good road may be built to connect Okara and Bahawalpur with Karachi-Lahore motorway.

What does "merge" mean? Have the works also been started in 2009 on the remaining 2 sections but the road will be M-9 instead of M-4 or will the works begin in December 2014? Is there any estimated completion date?

Any info about Peshawar bypass or M-8?

M8 is not a motorway. It's a two-lane road that doesn't have a single grade-separated interchange. In fact, it has hairpin turns and unrestricted access anywhere a road crosses or a village is located along side it. It just happens to be a new road.

M10 around Karachi is also not a motorway, it's a similar two-lane road, with unrestricted access except for one interchange with M9.

In England we had/have a couple of roads with motorway suffixes, and they too were 2 lane roads: The A6144(M) and A601(M).

These "motorways" were/are looked upon with ridicule as to why they designated as such.

No. Work not started on 2 sections of M-4. Now government has decided to build a new motorway Karachi-Lahore Motorway. That motorway will join M-4 on 2nd section. Since karachi-Lahore motorway is PPP project so they decided to merge those 2 sections with KLM.


Quote:
Instead of following old proposed plan, new govt. is going to build all new 1160 Km motorway. M-1,M-2 and M-3 is already completed. M-4 is U/C and is expected to complete by 2016. The new motorway (KLM) will join M-4 near Abdul Hakim.



Blue is M-4 and pink is Karachi-Lahore Motorway.





AND M-9 is Karachi-Hyderabad Motorway in sindh province. No way near to M-4. Look at map of motorways on 1st page.

Prime Minister may open Gogra-Faisalabad Motorway project by December 15

Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif is likely to inaugurate Asian Development Bank (ADB) financed Rs 9.98 billion Gogra-Faisalabad Motorway (M-4) measuring 58.8 kilometres by December 15, which would provide connectivity to Lahore-Islamabad Motorway and would contribute to national and regional trade corridor.

Prime Minister Muhammad Nawaz Sharif will perform the ground breaking ceremony of the Hazara Motorway on November 29.

This would be a 59 km motorway from M1 to Havelian (north of Islamabad). It is part of E35 that will be 110 km long to Mansehra.

This project is a part of China-Pakistan Economic corridor.

Deadline for 1st part (59 km) is 18 months. NHA asked for 2 years but PM refused.

According to wikipedia (modified on 15th and 19th December):

Quote:
Faisalabad-Gojra section completed and opened for traffic 25 December 2014
I couldn't find any information (and couldn't translate this: https://www.facebook.com/pakistanmotorways). Will the M4 section be opened on 25th December 2014 (typo?) or was it opened on 15th December 2014?

It didn't open on the 15th, that's for sure. It may still open in the coming week.

I wonder if the Faisalabad - Gojra motorway opened to traffic. I can't find any news reports on that, other than old reports from November that stated it would open in mid-December. A significant motorway opening like that would surely attract media and political attention.

The area has had persistent dense fog in recent weeks that closed down motorways, so it may have been the reason why it hasn't been inaugurated yet.
