Larkana Sukkur Project (under active consideration)

Sukkur is the third largest city in Sindh after Karachi and Hyderabad with average population of 1.5 million approx. It is well-connected to the rest of Pakistan by road and rail, which in turn has attracted new industries such as chemical manufacturing, metalworking, and cement manufacturing.

Larkana is also an important city of Sindh with average population of 364,033. It is home to the Indus Valley Civilization site Mohenjo-Daro. There are several towns in surroundings of the proposed alignment who will be using LSDC to commute.

Sukkur Airport ranks as the second main operational airport in Sindh, after Karachi Airport. Since Mohenjo-Daro Airport is not operational, Sukkur Airport caters the population of Larkana, Qambar, Shahdadkot and Dadu District as well.

Nawabshah  – Rohri via Mehran Highway (under consideration)

The frequent use of this route has been economical to the oil & gas fields /companies, industries of the Sanghar and Mirpurkhas districts to the refinery and also for other trade facilities of districts with Sukkur, Ghotki & Shikarpur which leads to Punjab & Balochistan provinces.

The volume of traffic is increased due to diversion of traffic flow from National Highway at Saeedabad towards Ranipur due to short distance and easy access to Sukkur . The purpose of construction of Additional carriageway is to reduce the traffic volume / flow from the existing road.

Due to high traffic volume / flow many deadly accidents are occurred which have taken so many lives


Mirpurkhas – Badin Road via Digri & Talhar dual carriageway (under consideration)

Mirpurkhas is the 4th largest city of Sindh and is famous for mango cultivation. Badin is another important district of Sindh which has few oil fields and is also called sugar-state due to its sugar production.

Currently the fastest route from Mpk to Badin is via Hyderabad-Mirpurkhas Dual Carriageway (HMDC) and Hyd – Badin Road which accumulates to 171km. The alternate to this route is MPKDigri-Talhar-Badin which is 129 km. Due to poor condition of road from Digri to Talhar (57 km portion) this route is not preferred by commuters.

By widening and revamp of the said road, we can provide shortest and fastest route for traffic coming from Mpk and Sanghar towards Badin and Sujawal.
