The M-10 (Urdu: موٹروے 10‎) or Karachi Northern Bypass (Urdu: كراچى شمالی متبادل راسته‎), is a 2-lane road that directly connects the M9 motorway to Karachi Port, and provides an easy way to transporters who directly have to go port or have to leave the city.

Route[edit]

The M10 begins north of Karachi at the end of Mohammad Ali Jinnah Road, near the junction of the M9 to which it is connected through a Trumpet interchange. It then continues north for a few kilometers before turning west, where it forms an interchange with the N25. After this interchange it eventually turns south back towards Karachi and merges onto the KPT Flyover at Karachi Port.

History[edit]

The construction work on the Bypass started in 2002 and was completed in 2007.[1]
