After completion of this road I don’t think a common man will be in position to purchase land at here that is already costly. It’s good for the people in new world city and GDA-5 whose plot will come on this road. So the people holding their plots in these both projects must check and keep touch with it.

This road having width of 300 feet is being constructed. It starts from Surbander road in Shankani Dar, as it is shown on the map and passes on north of existing airport, meets Jinnah Avenue Road at west end of airport and then finally will meet Main Coastal Highway toward Iran Border after Chath Kaur and Shah bad.
