On Tuesday, Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif visited Sukkur to lay the foundation for the M-6 highway between Sukkur and Hyderabad.
To commemorate the start of construction, the Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif travelled to Sukkur. Planning and Development Minister Ahsan Iqbal, Communications Minister Maulana Asad, Sindh Chief Minister Murad Ali Shah, and others attended the event.
As soon as the last section of the Peshawar Karachi Motorway is completed, the Sukkur-Hyderabad Motorway (M-6) will link all of the main and vital cities in Pakistan.
Public private partnership will speed up the completion of the project to only 30 months.
PM Shehbaz Sharif, who spoke at the event after laying the foundation stone, noted with delight that the coalition government had resumed building on the M-6 highway after a lengthy delay caused by the ineptitude of the previous administration.
The prime minister has stressed the need of maintaining the M-6 motorway to the same high standards as the rest of the country’s highway system.
The public-private partnership project had to be finished on schedule, following his instructions to the appropriate authorities.
To attain the aims of growth and prosperity, Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif urged Planning Minister Ahsan Iqbal to push further initiatives on public-private ventures.
To integrate the important Gwadar port and the province into the national economy, he also advocated for better road connections from Balochistan to the upcountry.
Following a previous announcement by former prime minister Nawaz Sharif, he said that construction of the Sukkur Rohri bridge was now complete.
The proposal papers for the Sukkur-Hyderabad Motorway Project, which is planned to be built on a Public-Private Partnership (PPP) basis at a cost of roughly Rs 191 billion, were authorised by the board of the P3A in September 2021.
