It is to be noted here that the project gained speed and momentum when Supreme Court of Pakistan gave the go-ahead to the concerned parties to construct Metro Train Line near sensitive heritage sites. which were previously stopped by Lahore High Court. However, the court has also ordered not to harm any cultural heritage site while building the train line; protective measures should be taken in the whole construction process.

According to (NESPAK) General Manager Salman Hafeez, the electric and mechanical work of the project has also been completed up to 40 percent. So, it is safe to assume that in the first half of this year the Orange Line Metro Train will start its operations across Lahore.

Furthermore, Railway Minister Khawaja Saad Rafique has also launched Kohat- Rawalpindi rail car service yesterday. The rail car service was halted in 2011, and it was re-launched by Railway Minister at a hefty cost of over three hundred and sixty million rupees.

The train will connect Kohat with other parts of the country, providing safe and economical travel to the people. Moreover, Peshawar’s first Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) line is likely to start operations by April, which will offer almost 1.9 million residents a hassle-free and affordable travelling.

    Such mass transit projects are desperately needed in all major cities. But other areas needing attention especially education and health should not be neglected.

  2. I think these Orange Train, Green Line even Rapid Bus Service like Speedo are required for each city, Most importatly, Karachi is lacking these facilities but with Federal government now Karachi Sindh Province along KPK Governments are forced to adopt to Punjab Mass Transit structure. As it is really benefiting in Urban Centres. We have written on Lahore Red Bus Services over 3 Years ago and now millions of Visitors have been using it on daily basis. Normally tickets are hard to get due to so much people.
