Previously called Sialkot-Lahore Motorway, the Kharian-Lahore motorway (KLM) is an under-construction north-south motorway in Pakistan, which will connect Kharian to Lahore via eastern parts of the Punjab. The motorway is 150 km long. The project is expected to be completed in 2021 at the cost of 44 billion rupees.[1] Once completed, it will reduce the travel time between Kharian and Lahore to just 1 hour 30 minutes.

Route[edit]

The motorway will be four-laned, having nine interchanges, eight flyovers, 20 bridges and 18 underpasses.[9x Interchange, 20x Brs, 18x Underpasses, 12x Subways, 23 Cattle Creeps & 207x culverts]. Three industrial zones and two universities would also be established along with the project. It will be linked with M2 and N5 through Lahore link road near Kala Shah Kaku. The route will run parallel to GT road, passing east of Kamoki, Gujranwala, Daska, Sambrial, Sialkot, Gujrat and will end at Kharian.

History[edit]

The KLM was conceived by the ex-Chief Minister of Punjab, Chaudhry Pervaiz Elahi, in 2006 and its foundation stone was laid in 2007 by the ex-President of Pakistan, General Pervez Musharraf, but no actual work was started. According to the original plan, the SLM would have been opened to the public in 2010 but the Government of Punjab shelved the project due to non-availability of funds. The ex-Prime Minister of Pakistan, Nawaz Sharif, re-ordered construction of the SLM. The National Highway Authority (NHA) shortlisted only two companies — Frontier Works Organization (FWO) and a foreign firm for undertaking this project. This road will uplift the Sialkot city and the surrounding rural hinterlands. An extension of this project, Sialkot to Kharian Motorway, is in its bidding phase which will also start soon.
