Works & Services Department Govt of Sindh
  HIGHWAYS DEPARTMENT

Sindh Highways Department is responsible for construction and maintenance of the entire provincial roads network.

At the time of independence Sindh inherited only about 1039 KMS of blacktopped roads, mostly
9 ft. to 12 ft. in width. The only major road at that time was the National Highway running from Karachi to Reti, bordering on Punjab having length of 664 kms. The roads then used to be constructed on the basis of stage construction. Now the provincial roads are constructed as per design requirement. The design standard and specifications are regularly up-dated to provide better quality and long life roads. Today the total road network in Sindh including federal roads, though more than 4800 KMS in length, still seems too lean when compared with the minimum requirement of 1KM/ sq.km. i.e; 140,900 KMS.
