|Project||Gwadar Eastbay Expressway|
Eastbay Expressway is the main artery of Gwadar Port through which the entire traffic of the port will flow. The objective of Eastbay Expressway is to provide primary connectivity of the Port & its Free Zone with the network of National Highways for smooth logistic transportation of import, export, and transit goods.
Currently, Gwadar Deep-Sea Port is connected through a narrow 16 feet wide thoroughfare of Gwadar town at the West Bay. All the trawlers/trucks loaded with imported shipments pass through this strip causing disruption of normal traffic. The port has not a dedicated wide highway to cater to the transporting requirements of the post. The port operationalization, even with the available 04 multi-purpose berths, necessitates the construction of the planned East-Bay expressway. This 6-lane expressway along with a provision of 30 meters wide railway corridor shall connect the port with the Mekran Coastal Highway (N-20) through the 2281 acres Free Trade Zone of Gwadar Port.
