This article lists some new opening dates: http://nation.com.pk/14-Nov-2017/lah...-by-april-next

M4: Shorkot – Khanewal 64km (June 2016 to April 2018) – ? – map
Still April 2018
The Lahore-Abdul Hakeem portion of the Peshawar-Lahore-Karachi Motorway which passes through Toba Tek Singh district's Rajana and Pirmahal areas will hopefully open for traffic in April 2018, a federal minister said.

Quote:
M3: Abdul Hakeem (M4) – Lahore 230km (September 2015 to June 2018) – ? – map
This motorway is visible on 2017 imagery in Google Earth. I'm not sure if this is numbered M3, this number is also applied to the existing motorway near Faisalabad. We'll have to wait and see...

The imagery shows that the Lahore - Multan motorway will be the through movement at the interchange near Abdul Hakeem, with the Faisalabad - Multan movements running through a trumpet interchange.

Imagery also shows a future interchange on M4 west of Khanewal for a motorway to the southeast. M4 seems to be designed as a TOTSO. It is presently a six-lane curve.

Also, the entire route of the Multan - Sukkur motorway is under construction according to Google Earth imagery. This means Pakistan will open tons of motorway mileage in the coming few years.

Shorkot-Khanewal has been pushed to August 2018 last I checked. It will likely open at the same time as M-3.

FYI - the title of that article is wrong, there will be no Lahore-Abdul Hakeem portion of M-4. Lahore-Abdul Hakeem is M-3, while M-4 is a separate motorway that has an interchange with M-3.

The existing M3, Faisalabad - Pindi Bhattian has been renumbered to M4. M4 will run from Multan to Pindi Bhattian, roughly 300 km in total.

I am not sure which road that is but it's likely not going to be a motorway, it might be an expressway or national highway or provincial highway.

That's correct - we also maintain the wikipedia page for motorways so you can get an idea of what's under construction. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Motorways_of_Pakistan

There's the Hakla - DI motorway that's under construction, as well as Lahore - Sialkot motorways. All these should be opening next year or 2019.

M6 should start construction very soon as well. It will be another huge motorway from Sukkur - Hyderabad. That one is slated for 2020 as of now.

I guess Chris is talking about the curve on Khanewal Multan Motorway which is just after Shamkot (Khanewal) Interchange. There was maybe a plan to continue motorway to Lodhran instead of Multan? But that is now shelved. Khanewal Lodhran Expressway is already U/C starting on East of Khanewal and it won't link M-4.

Google Map Curve after Shamkot Interchange.

Which section was opened last Febraury, the one next to Hyderabad or next to Karachi?

The project is divided into 7 packages the first three pakeges from Burhan Interchange to Havalian interchange comprising 60 km is expected to be completed towards the end of 2017.
If it's not outdated, the two sections from my list should still be opened "soon".

Quote:
While 2 pakeges from Havalian to Abbotabad, Abbotabad to Manshera, will be completed in April 2018, and remaining 2 sections, Manshera to Battagram and Battagram to Thakot comprising is expected to be completed towards the end of 2019 due to high mountains and difficult terrain in the way.
Will these sections also feature 2 carriageways and be fully grade-separated? If so, what's the lengths of the sections? I'd like to add it to my u/c project list.

Quote:
The Pakistani Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif inaugurated the Havelian-Thakot section of the expressway in Mansehra on April 28, 2016.
"inaugurated" means "construction start". I think the wikipedia article should be "corrected" although the English news article uses "inaugurated" but the international meaning of "inaugurated" is "opened" or "put into service" which is quite confusing for wikipedia readers.

'inauguration' is often used in South Asia to mean 'start of construction'.

Karachi - Hyderabad already operated as a four lane divided highway. In that sense, there isn't a real 'opening' of the highway, as it was under construction will being under traffic.

There is 2016 imagery in Google Earth showing some of M9 marked with 3 lanes each way west and east of Noori Abad.

The opened section for trial purpose was from Karachi side. Some 15-20 km away from Karachi. But now whole of the section is done and open to traffic on trial base. Meanwhile they are doing finishing works like interchanges, Sign boards, ITS etc. So, official inauguration will be in December,2017.
