ISLAMABAD: The National Highways Authority (NHA) Executive Board has recommended the PC-1 for construction of Kharian-Rawalpindi Motorway at the cost of Rs88.32 billion for the consideration of Central Development Working Party (CDWP).

According to documents available with Business Recorder that Executive Board recommended the PC-1 for construction of Kharian-Rawalpindi 4-lane Motorway having 6-lane structures (117.1 kms) at the cost of Rs88.32 billion for the consideration of the CDWP.
The project would be shaped up in November 2021.

According to a PC-I submitted in Planning Commission by NHA, the total length of the project is 117km long and it would be the 4-lane controlled access motorway.

The total proposed cost of the motorway is Rs88.32 billion including Rs68.91 billion construction and Rs7.09 billion land and utilities cost. The project would be completed in 30 months once started on Public Private Partnership mode.

The motorway starts from Kharian where the under construction Sialkot-Kharian Motorway would ends and then it will be terminated at T-Chowk on main G T Road near Rawat in Rawalpindi. The motorway includes 9 interchanges at Sarai Aalmgir, Jhelum, Dina, Sohawa, Gujar Khan, Mandra, Banth Moor, Chak Bali and T-chowk Rawat.

After its completion, the project would provide about a 100km short motorway route between Lahore and Islamabad.

The existing Lahore-Islamabad Motorway (M-2) is 375km long but new route from Lahore to Rawalpindi would be around 290km long.

Out of 290km project, 103km long Lahore-Sialkot Motorway is functional and 70km long Sialkot-Kharian Motorway is under construction while 117km long Kharian-Rawalpindi Motorway is going to be inaugurated after cabinet approval.
Get to it and build it PTI has some real jerks in the kharian division the condition of roads here is absolute shite.
No, this is new route.
NATO used Indus Highway.
GT road is N-5.
GT road was also used I believe because it connects back with the same route at Sohawa(not to be confused with village with same name in ISL) or Gujar Khan.

Motorway does too if you turn off Talagang towards Chakwal and Mianwali.

I've seen more NATO trucks on GT Road than Motorway that's for sure tho.

I wonder who were the Pakistani trucking companies handling those contracts if there ever were Pakistani companies handling NATO contracts. Would've made someone very rich.

Even in US military contracts can be very lucrative.
Get to it and build it PTI has some real jerks in the kharian division the condition of roads here is absolute shite.
More often it is a nexus of paindoo mna/mpa and ratta educated babus.
