80 percent work Gwadar East Bay Expressway complete

Chairman CPEC authority Lt Gen Asim Saleem Bajwa (retd) took to social media to provide updates regarding the construction work of the Gwadar East Bay Expressway. He tweeted from his twitter account “Update: East Bay Expressway progress 80%. Asphalt underway, will boost Port operations big way. #cpec #cpecmakingprogress.” Asim Bajwa also shared some pictures of the expressway showing asphalt work underway on the road. He said the expressway would help in boosting the operations of Gwadar port.

The East Bay Expressway would also provide connectivity of the Gwadar seaport and it’s Free Zone with the network of National Highways to ensure fast transportation of import, export and transit goods. Currently, the Gwadar deep sea port is connected through a narrow 16 feet wide thoroughfare of Gwadar Town at the West-Bay which would have been grossly inadequate to cater for the transportation needs, even with the available three multi-purpose berths, once the port becomes properly operational

The Gwadar East Bay Expressway 6-lane expressway along with a provision of 30 meters wide railway corridor will connect the port with the Mekran Coastal Highway (N-20) through the 2300 acres Free Trade Zone of Gwadar Port.
