LAHORE: China–Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) Chairman Authority Asim Saleem Bajwa on Sunday announced that the tender for the construction of an important section of the M-8 has been issued.

In a tweet, Bajwa said that the M-8 would “improve the connectivity of Gwadar Port, revolutionise socio-economic development of the region and bring prosperity through addressing the long term deprivation”.

According to Bajwa, the highway, situated in the remote districts of Kech, Awaran, “is a beacon of light for the impoverished people of South Balochistan and will change their lives”.

He reaffirmed Pakistan’s commitment to launching and completing all projects in Gwadar, “in line with Prime Minister Imran Khan’s vision”.

The Ratodero Gwadar Motorway (M-8) will start from Ratodero in Sindh and enter Balochistan passing near the towns of Khuzdar, Awaran, Hoshab, Turbat before joining the Makran Coastal Highway just east of the port city of Gwadar.

The M8 will have 4-lanes and a total length of 892 km.

  1. Despite paying the highest amount of tax in the country, Karachi continues to see least development activity of all major cities in the country. Although PPP, dominates Sindh assembly, there are number of CEPEC related projects which could have been initiated by this govt, inlcluding work on the Hyderabad-Sukkur motorway, Karachi Circular Railways, etc. Moreover the Fed Govt should have asked Army to do a through internal audit of DHA/Clifton and make necessary changes as these organization have become corrupt to the core. For these activities, the PTI does not need Sindh govt’s approval.

    Karachi continues to generate money but is not given its due share. Karachi is not a hen which will continue to lay golden egg, people are already getting fed up with the attitude of the rulers and will not pay continue to pay taxes if this trend continues.
