To overcome defence insecurity, government of Pakistan undertook different surveys some selective parts of which were published by Nawa-i-Waqt in its 25th September, 1958’s edition. According to this report, Pakistan intended to construct a road along its coastline of Arabian Sea till Gwelter, which is also the border point of Pakistan. The purpose to construct this road was to fortify its defence and check smuggling. However, the biggest hurdle in this project was Gwadar region. The report compiled for this purpose pointed out that this was the sole reason which made Pakistan ponder over having Gwadar.
