By Khalid Aziz | Gwadar Pro Jun 28, 2022



ISLAMABAD, June 28 (Gwadar Pro) - National Highway Authority (NHA) on Monday declared a joint venture between two Pakistani firms and China’s Geological Engineering Complex (SPGEC) as the ‘most advantageous’ bidder for the construction of a section of Ratodero-Gwadar motorway (M-8) under China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC).
SPGEC in JV offered to construct package 2B of 168 kilometres Awaran-Nall section of the Hoshab-Awaran-Khuzdar missing link in the M-8 motorway at the lowest cost of Rs 9.18 billion, NHA said in a statement. As per Public Procurement Regulatory Authority (PPRA) rules, NHA has to award the contract to the most advantageous bidder in two weeks.
The section is part of the project to construct a two-lane motorway facility from Hoshab to Khuzdar in Balochistan.
The project road starts from Awaran and terminates at Basima-Khuzdar Road (N-30) in Nall area near Khuzdar. M-8 will follow the alignment of N-30 after Nall to connect with the Ratodero-Khuzdar section of M-8 at Khuzdar, which is already operational, NHA said.
N-30 is currently under construction as part of the Rs400 billion Balochistan Development Package announced by the federal government as part of CPEC to connect Gwadar with the eastern parts of the province as well as Iran.
M-8 is an 892-kilometre-long east-west motorway connecting the Sukkur and Larkana areas of Sindh to Gwadar. Out of the 892 kilometres, 492 kilometres sections, the Ratodero-Khuzdar (242 kilometres) and Hoshab-Turbat-Gwadar (250 kilometres), have already been constructed and operational, NHA said. The hoshab-Khuzdar section is the missing link to complete M-8 in which NHA has already taken up the Hoshab-Awaran section (148 kilometres). After completion of the missing link (Hoshab-Awaran-Nall), M-8 will provide the shortest route to Gwadar, NHA said.

The federal government has decided to include three multi-billion rupee road infrastructure development projects in the agenda of the upcoming China-Pakistan-Economic-Corridor (CPEC) Joint Cooperation Committee (JCC) meeting.

According to reports, the three projects are the Mansehra-Muzaffarabad Expressway, the Babusar Tunnel, and the Zhob-D.I. Khan Highway (N50). The decision was made at a Joint Working Group (JWG) meeting presided over by Minister of Planning and Development Ahsan Iqbal.

The minister instructed for the required dossiers be prepared by the relevant authorities for the JCC meeting. As per sources, the details of the project are as follows:
  • Mansehra-Muzaffarabad (a link of CPEC) road; is estimated to be developed with PKR 44.72 billion. The PC-1 of the project has been approved and referred to the Executive Committee of the National Economic Council (ECNEC) for final approval.
