Gwadar Eastbay Expressway​

ProjectGwadar Eastbay Expressway
Project ObjectiveEastbay Expressway is the main artery of Gwadar Port through which the entire traffic of the port will flow. The objective of Eastbay Expressway is to provide primary connectivity of the Port & its Free Zone with the network of National Highways for smooth logistic transportation of import, export, and transit goods.
Project DescriptionCurrently, Gwadar Deep-Sea Port is connected through a narrow 16 feet wide thoroughfare of Gwadar town at the West Bay. All the trawlers/trucks loaded with imported shipments pass through this strip causing disruption of normal traffic. The port has not a dedicated wide highway to cater to the transporting requirements of the post. The port operationalization, even with the available 04 multi-purpose berths, necessitates the construction of the planned East-Bay expressway. This 6-lane expressway along with a provision of 30 meters wide railway corridor shall connect the port with the Mekran Coastal Highway (N-20) through the 2281 acres Free Trade Zone of Gwadar Port.

“As part of efforts to ease difficulties of people of Gwadar, federal government has decided to provide solar panels for domestic consumers,” Prime Minister Muhammad Shahbaz Sharif announced on Friday, adding that he has directed for the completion of work on transmission lines in South Balochistan by December and a plan for comprehensive off-grid system.

The first step towards the solarization of Gwadar was taken by China in December 2021 when it announced the installation of 3,200 units of solar panels in various houses in Gwadar. The project is being carried out directly with the help of China, which started arriving in January earlier this year.

The Cabinet Committee of Energy had already approved entering into a deal with Iran for new energy purchases. Pakistan is purchasing 102 MW electricity from Iran while the government has finalized a deal with Iran to buy additional 100MW for Gwadar and other coastal areas of Balochistan.

In this regard, Federal Minister for Planning and Development Professor Ahsan Iqbal on Wednesday held a fruitful meeting with Iranian Ambassador to Pakistan.
