The 306-kilometre highway is part of Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s Rs446-billion Sindh development package.

According to a source familiar with the situation, the project called for constructing a 306-kilometre green-field six-lane access managed motorway on a build-operate-transfer (BOT) basis cost of Rs191 billion.
