During visit to interior Sindh, Governor Sindh Dr. Ishrat Ul Ebad Khan inspected the ongoing work of Motorway M9 project that connects Karachi with Hyderabad. It will be 136-km long, 6-lane with 8 Interchanges and 2 Service Areas.
The Karachi-Hyderabad Motorway (M9) project has been awarded to FWO (Frontier Works Organization) for the next 25 years on Built-Operate-Transfer basis. The plan is to convert 136-km long 4-lane Super Highway between Karachi and Hyderabad into a 6-lane controlled-access motorway, which, after completion, will be renamed as M-9.
On successful persuasion of Governor Sindh Dr. Ishrat Ul Ebad Khan, Federal Government funded the Motorway M-9 project.
The project will save operational cost of the vehicles as well as time and fuel, it will create employment opportunities & business growth besides socio-economic uplift of the area and it’ll also contribute to national and regional trade corridor and provide better access to the farmers.
