PM inaugurates Karachi North Bound Carriageway
KARACHI (92 News) – Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi on Sunday inaugurated the North Bound Carriageway which was part of much awaited Lyari Expressway project.
The expressway became operational immediately after its inauguration. Governor Sindh Muhammad Zubair and Chief Minister Syed Murad Ali Shah were also present on the occasion.
The total length of project including ramps is 38 km with a construction cost of Rs. 10 billion. It includes 4 interchanges at Sorab Goth, Manghopir, Sir Shah Suleman and Maripur. Besides, 20 major bridges are also part of the project.
The project carries immense importance in reducing the ever-growing traffic volume inside the city.
The traffic coming from port and Super Highway (now M9) will use the expressway to reach their destinations without entering into the city.
It will also reduce the flood damages to the areas along the river and add to the environmental protection of the entire area.
