Groundbreaking of M-4 Motorway today

Islamabad—Prime Minister Muhammad Nawaz Sharif will perform the ground-breaking of Shorkot-Khanewal section of Faisalabad-Multan Motorway (M-4) on Saturday. The 240-km Faisalabad-Multan Motorway will provide a shorter and direct connection between southern port cities of Karachi and Gwadar with the north of country.
It will upgrade and decongest the country’s overburdened transport infrastructure. The Motorway will boost trade and travel while reducing transportation cost and time from the textile producing hub Faisalabad in Central Punjab to Multan which is a major trade centre in Southern Punjab.
The Faisalabad-Multan Motorway is divided into four sections including Faisalabad-Gojra (58 kms), which has already been completed; Gojra-Shorkot (62 kms), which is under construction and Shorkot-Khanewal (65 kms), ground-breaking of which will be held on Saturday; and Khanewal-Multan (55.6 kms), which has already been completed.
Shorkot-Khanewal section is divided into two packages including Shorkot-Dinpur (31 kms) and Dinpur-Khanewal (34 kms), in order to ensure its in-time completion.—APP
