ISLAMABAD: Lt Gen (r) Asim Saleem Bajwa, chairman of the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) Authority, said on Saturday that the Sukkur-Hyderabad (M-6) Motorway project will bring a development revolution in interior Sindh.

In a tweet, Bajwa, who is also the prime minister’s special assistant on information and broadcast, said that the 306-kilometre highway was approved in a meeting of the executive committee of the National Economic Council (NEC) which will be constructed on a build-operate-transfer (BOT) basis. BOT is a model for large-scale infrastructure projects, wherein a private entity receives a concession from the public sector to finance, design, construct, own, and operate a facility.

He said following the construction of the project, the eastern route of the CPEC (Peshawar-Karachi) will also be completed.

Bajwa added that the project would also connect eastern Balochistan to the countrywide network of motorways.
