Description

The Karachi–Lahore Motorway is a 1,152-kilometre-long six-lane, high-speed, controlled-access motorway currently under construction in Pakistan. Upon completion, it will connect Karachi and Lahore, and by extension Islamabad and Peshawar. The highway will also connect a number of major cities like Hyderabad, Faisalabad, and Multan. Although first devised in the early 1990s as a combination of the M3, M4, M5, M6, and M9 motorways, this project is now considered a major component of the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor.
