The M-2 Motorway has played a vital role in the development of Pakistan’s transportation infrastructure and has greatly benefited travelers by reducing travel times and improving safety. The M-2 Motorway is a key transportation corridor in Pakistan, connecting the cities of Lahore and Islamabad/Rawalpindi.
Before the construction of the M-2 Motorway, the Grand Trunk (G T) Road was the main route between these two cities. The M-2 Motorway, which runs parallel to the G T Road, provides a faster and more efficient alternative for long-distance travelers.
In addition to the M-2 Motorway, the Lahore-Sialkot-Kharian-Jhelum-Rawalpindi Motorway (M-11 Motorway) is under construction and is expected to provide another alternative route between these two cities. The M-11 Motorway is expected to improve transportation and economic development in the region by providing a more direct route for the movement of goods and people.
Main Features of Sialkot-Kharian Motorway
The M-11 Motorway, also known as the Lahore-Sialkot-Kharian-Jhelum-Rawalpindi Motorway, is a proposed highway in Pakistan that will provide an alternative route between the major cities of Lahore and Rawalpindi/Islamabad. The M-11 Motorway will be approximately 69 kilometers in length and will run from Sambrial in District Sialkot to Kharian.
The M-11 Motorway will have five interchanges at:
- Jalalpur Jattan
- Piro Shah
- Daulat Nagar
These interchanges will provide access to the motorway from other roads and highways in the region. The motorway will have four lanes, making it a safe and efficient route for long-distance travel.

The M-11 Motorway is expected to significantly improve transportation and economic development in the region by providing a more direct route for the movement of goods and people. It will also provide an additional access route between Lahore and Rawalpindi/Islamabad, in addition to the existing M-2 Motorway and the older G T Road.
M-11 Motorway project is an important infrastructure development for Pakistan, with the potential to generate significant economic benefits and improve accessibility for businesses in the region. The use of a private-public partnership model for the project suggests that both the public and private sectors are committed to its success.
The creation of 43,000 jobs and the expected flow of 23,000 cars per day on the motorway are significant indicators of the impact that the M-11 Motorway is likely to have. It is encouraging to hear that the Prime Minister sees the project as an important way to boost the local economy and provide opportunities for employment.
The M-11 Motorway’s ability to improve accessibility for industries in the region is also an important benefit. By providing a more efficient route for the movement of goods, the motorway has the potential to support the growth and development of these industries, as well as facilitate trade with larger markets. Overall, the M-11 Motorway appears to be a valuable project that will have positive impacts on the region and its residents.
