History[edit]

Main article: Grand Trunk Road

Part of the highway was built on the ancient Grand Trunk Road (commonly known as G.T. Road) which came under jurisdiction of the new state after the independence of Pakistan in 1947. Thus developments of this road took place and in 1990s, the road was converted in an international standard highway.

New G.T. Road[edit]

In Pakistan, the old GT Road ends at Peshawar in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa. There were some routes in Pakistan which were known as GT Road Multan Road (Lahore to Multan), Rahim Yar Road (Bahawalpur to Rahim Yar Khan) and Karachi road (Sukkur to Karachi). NHA planned to combine these roads into one highway, thus N-5, or NEW G.T. Road came into existence. A huge upgrade took place on these routes in mid-1990s and N-5 was converted into a 4 lane, 1819 km long highway. N-5 is now Pakistan's longest and most important highway.
