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.
Its just one part of the motorway from Faisalabad to Multan, which is divided into 4 sections. The motorway would be formally inaugurated when the whole project is complete but traffic has started moving on the section that is complete.

I have friends who have traveled on this part last month. Toll booths are (were) still not functional so it was a free ride. By "opening", I think they mean they will start operating the toll booths.

Wow, look how fast they are, in front of impossible odds, in such a remote area. No kind of effort in our country, on road construction, can compare to what they did and will do in such a short amount of time.

M9 Karachi - Hyderabad

Construction work of M-9 to start soon

National Highways Authority (NHA) would start physical work on Karachi-Hyderabad Motorway (M-9) project soon.

Presently Super Highway was in dilapidated condition due to heavy traffic and expiry of its designed period.

Twice in past few years NHA awarded contract to two firms on build, operate, transfer basis but both failed to complete financial close as per conditions of the contract and their contracts were terminated.

M4 Faisalabad - Gojra opening has been delayed by another two months. They wait for Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif to cut the ribbon.

The people, however, say the road should immediately be opened to traffic without the inauguration which could take place at the convenience of the prime minister.
That means, the road is completed - maybe used by cars since Mid of December 2014 - but not yet OFFICIALLY in service.

PM performs ground-breaking ceremony for Karachi-Lahore motorway March 11, 2015

Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif arrived in the city to attend the ground-breaking ceremony for the Karachi-Lahore Motorway project.

“The next route will be from Hyderabad to Sukkur and then to Multan,” the premier said, while addressing the ground-breaking ceremony.

He added, “Good infrastructure in the country is my wish and the motorway project is very close to my heart.”

“We are disbursing money for the project from PSDP and not borrowing,” he added.

Sindh Governor Dr Ishratul Ebad and Sindh Chief Minister Qaim Ali Shah received the premier at the airport and accompanied him during the ceremony.

In the first phase, the motorway will be constructed from Karachi to Hyderabad and will stretch to Lahore as part of the M-9 project.

The motorway is expected to cost Rs36 billion and will be completed in 30 months.

If I got it right, the first section - where construction has been started - has a length of 136km. It will be completed by late 2017 (30 months)!? Where is the 136km section, can you show it on a map?

I think that is the modernizing and widening of existing M9 from Karachi to Hyderabad.

Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif was unable to attend the inauguration of Multan-Faisalabad Motorway project in Gojra on Monday as Christians protesting against the church attacks blocked his route.
The acting Punjab Governor Rana Iqbal had to inaugurate the motorway in the premier’s absence.
I guess it's in service now.

If I got Chris' answer right, the existing M9 has already motorway standard, hasn't it?

Quote:
The definition of motorway and expressway status is country-specific. The subsequent definition describes the pre-conditions which must be fulfilled to add new projects:

New motorways and expressways are projects which are currently under construction or have been opened since 1st January 2014.
The pre-conditions to be added to the list are, that the future road:
- must feature 2 carriageways with each 2 lanes
- must be grade-separated
- should be access-controlled
It doesn't matter if the future road will feature hard shoulders.
A median is not mandatory but there must be a fixed barrier between the carriageways, for instance guard railing.
If a 2nd carriageway is planned but not yet u/c, the project is added if the other pre-conditions - except barrier - are already fulfilled.
Projects which were under construction but are suspended now, are added too, if the completion is still planned by the countries demand plan.
In addition, roads will be added which will be rededicated to motorway or expressway status of the respective country.
Widening projects are not included.
The opening date does not refer to the completion of the works but to the official opening of the road.
Which requirement is not yet fulfilled and will be managed by the current modernization? Widening projects, e.g. 2x2 to 2x3, are not included in the list at all.
