MULTAN | Metro Bus System MBS | Infrastructure | Complete

‘Multan to get metro bus next’

MULTAN: “The chief minister will announce a metro bus project for Multan during his visit to the city on Thursday (today),” DCO Zahid Saleem Gondal said on Wednesday.

He was addressing newsmen at the circuit house.

He said a Turkish firm and the Metro Bus Project managing director had proposed three routes for the metro bus in Mutlan and a final decision in this regard would be made after consultation with the city government.

Gondal said Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif was keen on early completion of the Faisalabad-Multan motorway.

He said the government had ordered him to issue notices on land acquisition for the Multan-Karachi motorway.

He said Rs90 million would be spent for the renovation of Old Shujaabad Road.

He said funds had also been allocated for renovation of public libraries including Bagh Langay Khan and Kuhna Qasim.

The Metro Bus route will run on two routes connecting different areas of the city like Bahauddin Zakariya University, Chowk Kumharanwala and BCG Chowk. The first route will cover a distance of 19-km and the citizens will be able to travel between Bahauddin Zakariya University and Gaddafi chowk via Gulgasht, Chungi No-6, Chungi No-9 and Khanewal Road. The other route will run between Chungi No-9 and BCG Chowk and it will be 9-km-long. Sources said that over 20 modern stations will be constructed for passengers on these two routes.
