About GT Road


GT Road (Grand Trunk Road) is one of the oldest and longest roads in Asia which has been used for more than two millennia. Originally it ran through northern India between Chittagong (Bangladesh), running through Howrah, Delhi (India), Lahore, Peshawar (Pakistan), Jalalabad, Kabul (Afghanistan) and then further up to North in Central Asian states. Throughout the ages this road had different names. UttaraPatha (Road to north, Sanskrit), Shah Rah-e-Azam (Great Road, Persian) or Badshahi Sarak (King’s Road, Urdu). The old route existed through the Maurya Empire and was upgraded during the reign of Sher Shah Suri and then again during the British Empire. After partition of British India, both India and Pakistan made modifications in the route and extended the network in their own countries. In Pakistan, GT Road is now a 1756 KM long route between Karachi (Sindh) and Torkham (Khyber Pukhtun Khwa) running through three provinces. The road is extended today covering all major cities of the country. It is commonly known as GT Road throughout Pakistan but there are different names given to its different portions. GT Road is now the busiest road in the country and serves as a lifeline of transport in Pakistan.
