Pakistan has completed over 80 percent work on Kartarpur Corridor and construction work has entered into its final phase now. Sources had said the construction work will be completed before the eve of 550 birth anniversary of Guru Nanak this year in November.
“Construction of main road, bridge on Ravi River and border terminal buildings from zero line to Gurdwara Sahib has almost been completed,” a senior engineer of the project had said.
Some renovation and construction of Gurdwara Sahab Complex is also left which hopefully along other remaining work will be completed before the assigned time.
This Corridor will provide Indian Sikh pilgrims visa-free access to the Gurdwara in Kartarpur Sahib.
