Remarkable and Huge Progress which is seen today’s Gwadar is as follows:-

1)Coastal Highway is completed and is in operation now since last year and a half, now people can travel on this road. Roadwork is done by FWO and they only know how difficult it was to construct a 600-kilometer long road. Every one has to appreciate their work, which was completed before given time period. It is very fine and comfortable to travel. It is interesting that there is no security risk while traveling on this road any time. After operation of this now people could reach from Gwadar to Karachi easily with in 7 hours by their own conveyance and 9 hours through public transport by spending Rs.500/- only.
