KARACHI: Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi will inaugurate today the northbound section of the Lyari Expressway — which had been delayed for more than 15 years.
The southbound portion of the expressway was opened for vehicular traffic around a decade ago.
During his visit to Karachi, Abbasi is likely to chair a top-level meeting in which he would be briefed on the current state of mega development projects being built in the city with the centre’s financial support as well as on the city’s law and order situation, including the issue of extrajudicial killings and Karachi Operation.
The prime minister is also expected to attend a meeting of the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz’s Sindh chapter.
Moreover, the premier is expected to leave for Gwadar tomorrow to inaugurate the Gwadar Expo.
