TURBAT: Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif on Wednesday inaugurated a 448-kilometre-long Sorab-Hoshab Road (N-85) on Wednesday, an important part of the western route of the Corridor of China Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC).
The Sorab-Hoshab Road would link Gwadar Port with the National Highway with the shortest link from the port to Afghanistan and other Central Asian countries. It was built at an estimated cost of Rs 22,028 million approximately.
Speaking at the inaugural ceremony, the premier said the dream of Balochistan’s prosperity was being realised with the completion of several development projects because a developed Balochistan Pakistan was important for a new Pakistan.
“A new and developed Balochistan means a new Pakistan, with an unprecedented progress, never took place in history,” the Prime Minister said during his address.
