PM lays foundation-stone of Multan-Khanewal Motorway section

MULTAN, Oct 1 (APP): Prime Minister Syed Yusuf Raza Gilani on Saturday performed ground breaking of Multan-Khanewal section of M4 (Multan-Faisalabad) Motorway project, to be built at a cost of Rs 12.9 billion, which would prove to be a gateway of South Punjab development.The foundation-laying ceremony of 57-kilometre long section of M4 was held at Billiwala area, some 20 kilometres away from here where the Prime Minister also addressed the biggest ever public meeting in South Punjab, which according to PPP leaders was attended by around 100,000 people from across the whole area.

The project is expected to be completed in three-year period. However, according to Federal Minister for Communications Arbab Alamgir, hectic efforts would be made to complete it within two years.
The Prime Minister said the motorway would be extended up to Muzaffargarh and then up to Sindh via Lodhran and Bahawalpur. He said the project would revolutionize agriculture, trade and industrial operations and create numerous jobs for the unemployed skilled youth. It would bring South Punjab at par with the developed area of province, he added.

The motorway will significantly reduce travelling time. The travelling time between Faisalabad and Multan will be reduced from four to two-and-a half hours while that between Multan and Rawalpindi will be decreased by 90 minutes.

Arbab Alamgir said that the National Highway Authority (NHA) had launched road infrastructure projects worth Rs 15 billion in South Punjab. The M4 was a step forward to building a national trade corridor upto Iran, Afghanistan, and China.

NHA Chairman Syed Mohammad Ali Gardezi gave a detailed briefing to the Prime Minister on the project.
The 241-kilometre long four-lane motorway project will be completed at a cost of over Rs 47 billion with the financial hlep of the Government of Pakistan, Asian Development Bank (ADB) and Islamic Development Bank (IDB).
This motorway has been divided into four sections including Faisalabad-Gojra (58 km) for which the Prime Minister had already performed ground breaking and work was in progress.

Other sections include Gojra-Shorkot section (62 km), Shorkot-Deenpur-Khanewal section (64 km), and Khanewal-Multan section (57 km). Two big bridges will be built on the motorway at the points including the Ravi River and Sidhnai channel besides 16 interchanges, as many fly-overs, and 20 under-passes.

The extraordinary project is believed to pace up social and economic development besides accelerating the industrial wheel to open up new windows of earning opportunities to the unemployed skilled youth of South Punjab.

The modern highway will also promote agri-business in the agriculture rich area that will compete the other developed areas of the country after the implementation of PMs mega development package.

Faisalabad-Multan motorway construction is the part of a dynamic national trade corridor programme to link South Punjab with other motorways.

Pakistan has a 12,000-kilometre network of highways comprising motorways, national highways, expressways, and strategic roads, however, they are only 4.6 per cent of the total road network that runs through this area, NHA officials said. But, around 80 per cent of commercial traffic utilizes this network of highways for speedy transportation of trade goods.

It is a wonderful news and we would like to see this project get completed from the Faisalabad to Khanewal side as well. It has been a long time since we have waited to go to Multan on a fast and time saving highway.

Daewoo bus service uses the route parrallel to M4 from Faisalabad downwards.

While going back from Gojra to Faisalabad, via a bypass, I saw M4 section under development near the end of M3.
As I was driving, so couldnt take pix. Work was halted due to eid holidays but didnt see much machinery on this end.

MULTAN National Highway Authority Chairman Muhammad Ali Gardezi disclosed on Monday (27/02/2012) that a Turkish company would start work on Motorway (M-4, Multan-Khanewal Section) from March as Islamic Development Bank had released funds worth Rs. 1 billion for the project.

Talking to the journalists after a meeting to review the development projects of South Punjab region, he added that the Multan-Khanewal Motorway project was equally split into three 19-kilometer portions to accomplish it in time. He added that Turkish company’s machinery was unloaded at Karachi Dry Port.

He dispelled the impression that the design of Motorway was changed because of political pressure. “It’s just rumours. The project will be done according to its original design,” he added. To a query, he said that the all development projects of South Punjab would be accomplished even if Yousuf Raza quit the prime minister office.

He disclosed that work on Rasheedabad flyover had begun while the tenders for Chungi No-6 and Gol Bagh flyovers had been released. He added that land acquiring for the abovementioned projects was underway.

I often use the road parrallel to M4 from Faisalabad-Gojra section. Many culverts have been made over drains but the work seems to have stopped for more than one year. Since Im driving its difficult to take the pix. Once completed till Gojra, my village will be easily accessible and I can directly go there via M2/M4/M4!

Islamabad—Minister for Communications Dr. Arbab Alamgir Khan Tuesday issued directives for acceleration of land acquisition process to ensure timely completion of Faisalabad-Multan Motorway (M-4).

While presiding over a high-level progress review meeting regarding M-4 here the minister said that any delay in this regard will not be tolerated and some specific date may be given to contracting firms for strict compliance of mobilization at sites.

The meeting was also attended by Chairman National Highway Authority (NHA), Additional Secretary Ministry of Communications Amjad Nazir, project related officers and representatives of Chinese and Turkish firms.

Addressing the meeting the minister termed the M-4 project of prime national importance.

This mega project, he added, is planned under National Trade Corridor (NTC) programme with the financial assistance of Asian Development Bank and Islamic Development Bank.

M-4 will ease traffic load on economic lifeline of the country Great Trunk road (N-5) as it will reduce distance between Khanewal and Pindi Bhattian by about 150 km thereby resulting into huge savings in fuel and vehicle operation cost.

He said that this gigantic project will open new avenues for development of the area during construction phase.

The minister was informed in a briefing that the project has been divided into four sections for speedy execution which include Faisalabad-Gojra section (58 km), Gojra-Shorkot section (62km), Shorkot-Khanewal section (64 km) and Khanewal-Multan section (57 km).

He was informed that 96 per cent land acquisition work has been completed on Shorkot-Gojra section while land acquisition of Shorkot-Khanewal section is under progress.

Khanewal-Multan section will be funded by IDB while the other three section will be completed with ADB loan amounting to US $ 90 million.

Fifteen interchanges and 23 flyovers/underpasses are part of the project. Two major bridges on Ravi river and Sidhnai canal will also be built.

The project is scheduled to be completed by December next year

In how many years are they really planning to get this project constructed and completed? It will take nearly 3 years or more to get a 58km Fsd-Gojra section to be completed. These projects should be completed with a good pace and as a priority!
