The M-10 (Urdu: موٹروے 10) or Karachi Northern Bypass (Urdu: كراچى شمالی متبادل راسته), is a 2-lane road of Karachi (one lane on each side) also called as Motorway. That connects the M-9 motorway to the Karachi Port, and provides an easy access to the transporters and to the commuters who can go directly to the Karachi port without entering the main arteries of 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]
