|Project||Gwadar East-Bay Expressway|
|Project Description||Project Title: Construction of East-Bay Expressway, Gwadar Port|
Currently, Gwadar Deep-Sea Port is connected through a narrow 16 feet wide thoroughfare of Gwadar town at the West-Bay. All the trawlers/trucks loaded with imported shipments pass through this strip causing disruption of normal traffic. The port has not a dedicated wide highway to cater the transporting requirements of the post. The port operationalization, even with the available 3 multi-purpose berths, necessitates construction of the planned East-Bay expressway. This 6-lane expressway along with a provision of 30 meters wide railway corridor shall connect the port with the Mekran Coastal Highway (N-20) through the 2300 acres Free Trade Zone of Gwadar Port.
Objective of the Project: Linking Gwadar Port with the main artery of national highway network and smooth logistic transportation of import, export and transit goods.
