SMEC has strengthened its presence in the Pakistan roads and highways sector, securing two new projects through its subsidiary, Engineering General Consultants (EGC), as part of joint ventures with two local firms.

The first project with Pakistan’s National Highway Authority (NHA) is for a feasibility study and detailed design for construction of Nokundi-Mashkhel-Panjgoor Road (200 km). This motorway connects with N-40 that in turn links Pakistan with Iran. The improved road will enhance trade and economic activities between Pakistan and Iran, as well as provide an all-weather connection for the less-developed areas of Balochistan province.

The second project is the feasibility study and detailed design of Rawalpindi Ring Road with the Rawalpindi Development Authority. Islamabad and Rawalpindi are twin metropolitan cities that play a vital role in Pakistan’s economy. Islamabad is the capital of Pakistan while Rawalpindi is one of the country's largest metropolitan cities. The proposed Ring Road is 38 km long and will provide free and quick access to both cities with three vital highways.
