LAHORE | Metro

The Lahore Metro or Lahore Rapid Mass Transit System (LRMTS) (Urdu: لاہور میٹرو‎) is an under construction rapid transit system (metro train system) for Lahore, the second largest city of Pakistan. First proposed in 1991, funding was not secured, and in 2012 it was abandoned by the Punjab government in favour of the more cost–effective Lahore Metro Bus System which opened in February 2013. However, the Punjab Government decided to restart development on the Lahore Metro as a $1.6 billion project with Chinese assistance. The Orange Line, which will be 27.1-kilometre (16.8 mi) long (25.4 kilometres (15.8 mi) of which will be elevated),[ will be the first line of the project and is currently under construction.




Lines
Number of lines : 3
Length: 76 km
Orange Line
In 2014, development on the Lahore Metro was revived by the Punjab Government as a $1.6 billion rapid transit project to be built with Chinese assistance. The 27.1-kilometre (16.8 mi) Orange Line (Lahore Metro) will be constructed first.[10] The Orange Line (Lahore Metro) will be 27.1-kilometre (16.8 mi) long, of which 25.4 kilometres (15.8 mi) will be elevated.[10] The service will initially projected benefit around 250,000 passengers a day. The capacity will be increased to 500,000 passengers a day by 2020. Shahbaz Sharif on the occasion said like the Metro Bus Service, the metro train would also be run in other cities after Lahore.




Blue Line
The Blue Line is 24 kilometres (15 mi) in length and extends from Chauburji to College Road, Township. It passes through these important commercial and residential areas:

Chauburji
Central
Mozang Chungi
Shadman Chowk
Jail Road Lahore
Mian Boulevard Gulberg
Kalma Chowk
Mian Boulevard Garden Town
Faisal Town
College Road, Township




Purple Line
The Purple Line will join the Lahore Metrobus, at Data Darbar and the Orange Line, at Lakshami and connect to the Allama Iqbal International Airport and will end at Lahore University of Management Sciences. Length will be around 25 km.

Speaking of Orange Line, Central and Anarkali will be the only underground stations? Mostly line will be elevated?
