The M3 (Urdu: موٹروے 3‎) is a north-south motorway in Pakistan, connecting the Lahore end of the M2 to M4 near Abdul Hakeem.

The M-3 motorway is duplicate or parallel motorway of M-4 motorway and took eastern route from Lahore to Abdul Hakeem city, while M-4 motorway which connects M-2 to same Abdul Hakeem city.

Despite the existence of North to south M-4 motorway, M-3 motorway was given preference over vital M-6 (Sukkur to Hyderabad) motorway on which construction work is not yet started, thus causing north to south link incomplete.

It is a 6 lane highway with 3 rest areas along the route. Despite of its inauguration during May 2018, is not operational up till now (December 2018) due to some unknown reasons.
