The appellants had argued that SEPA had given the Malir Motorway Ltd. EIA approval on 6 April of last year in contravention of the Sindh Environmental Protection Agency Regulations, 2014.

The project was described as a 38.75-kilometer-long, six-lane dual carriageway in the EIA permission. It begins on Korangi Road before Jam Sadiq Bridge, travels along the right bank of the Malir River, and ends on M-9 close to DHA City, on the outskirts of Karachi.
