Detail Narrative Description of the Project:

Government of Sindh has the intention to dualize the existing National Highway N-5 from Karachi to Thatta. The main objective of this Project is to enhance the road quality of existing N5 highway, which is, inter alia, the scope of this Project. However, the larger economic
benefit of this Project is linked with connecting this corridor from Thatta onwards to Mithi, taking it further down to Islamkot and Thar – carrying over all road length to 296 km.

The improved access envisaged would serve thousands of commuters living along the Karachi Thatta route and those who are already using this facility up to Thatta and/or beyond. It is also expected that the improved facility would help open up these areas for creation of soft infrastructure such as better services for schools and health centres as these areas would become easy reach through development of this plan.
