Motorways of Pakistan

The Super Highway is a 136-km long 4-lane highway connecting the cities of Hyderabad and Karachi in the Sindh province of Pakistan. It is a part of Pakistan's National Highways Network.

The Super Highway is currently being converted into a 6-lane limited-access or controlled-access motorway, which, after completion, will be redesignated the "M-9."[citation needed]

In July 2014, Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif directed the National Highway Authority to initiate work on the Super Highway project, M-9, which is likely to cost Rs 42 billion.[1]

Conversion into M-9 Motorway[edit]

The Super Highway is in the process of being upgraded into a 6-lane access-controlled motorway, designated the "M-9". Expression of Interest (EOI) were invited by the National Highway Authority (NHA) in May 2011[2] The NHA awarded the Rs. 24.93 billion contract to the Malaysian construction company, Bina Puri Holdings Bhd, on Built Operate Transfer (BOT) basis.[3] The proposed 136-km long motorway will be completed in three years. The M-9 Motorway will have 20 interchanges, 2 service areas at the midway points and 16 toll plazas on entry and exit points.[4]
