The Gwadar-Hoshab Highway, also known as the Makran Coastal Highway, is a significant road infrastructure project in Pakistan. It connects the port city of Gwadar in Balochistan province to the town of Hoshab in the same province. The highway stretches for about 653 kilometers along the coast of the Arabian Sea, passing through towns and cities such as Ormara, Pasni, and Turbat.

This highway plays a crucial role in linking the deep-sea port of Gwadar to the rest of Pakistan’s road network. It is part of the larger China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) project, which aims to improve transportation infrastructure and create economic opportunities in Pakistan by connecting it to China’s western region. The Gwadar-Hoshab Highway facilitates trade and transportation not only between Gwadar and other parts of Pakistan but also with neighboring countries such as China and Iran.

The construction of this highway has been a significant development in the region, opening up new avenues for economic growth, trade, and investment. It has also enhanced connectivity and accessibility to remote areas along the Makran coast, benefiting local communities and promoting tourism in the region.
