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.


The M3 starts at the M2 in Lahore. It then goes southwest from Lahore and ends where it meets the [2]M4 motorway near the city of Abdul Hakim. 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.
