Stayed without a stay: OLMT construction on hold despite SC green signal



LAHORE:
The Supreme Court of Pakistan may have given a green signal to the Punjab government for completion of the Lahore Orange Line Metro (OLMT) project, but development works near heritage sites had not started even seven days after the decision.

Speaking to The Express Tribune on Saturday, an executive of a local contracting company said the government and city developers were rather concerned about the safety of heritage sites as the apex court had imposed 31 conditions in its decision. The Lahore Development Authority (LDA) had government directed civil contractors to take maximum precautions to avoid any damage to heritage sites by construction works, he said.

OLMT Package-1 contractor Shahid Saleem, said, “Though temporary scaffolding has been erected to safeguard the structure of Lakshmi Mansion and tarpaulin have been installed to cover the exterior of Shalimar Gardens and other heritage sites, the LDA has not allowed contractors to initiate construction near them.”

Punjab Chief Minister Shehbaz Sharif was not in the country over the last week as he was attending the Organisation of Islamic Countries (OIC) meeting in Turkey. On his return, city developers planned to inform him about the precautionary measures after which work would kick off on the remaining sections of the metro train track.

Responding to a question, he said the company has already completed most civil works on Grand Trunk Road and only 85 piles needed to be erected for the construction of the elevated metro train track near Shalimar Garden.

Chief Minister Punjab Mian Shehbaz Sharif paid a visit to Orange Line Metro Train site office (UET) followed by media briefing.

“Orange Line Metro Train will provide comfortable and affordable transport to common man. 22 months delay in this project has wasted a lot of time of citizens. Otherwise this project was to be inaugurated on 25th December, 2017. More than 3,00,00 passengers would have been travelling from Dera Gujjran to Ali Town. I am personally reviewing the progress on this project. We are working day and night for the timely completion of this project” Chief Minister Punjab, Shehbaz Sharif

LAHORE: In line with Supreme Court of Pakistan orders, all possible arrangements are being made to preserve 11 historical buildings which fall along the route of the Lahore Orange Line Metro Train Project. To this end, special instruments to continuously monitor vibration intensity and mitigate environmental/noise pollution would be installed.

Punjab Advisor to the Chief Minister and Chairman of the Steering Committee for Lahore Orange Line Metro Train Project (LOMTP), Khawaja Ahmad Hassan, disclosed this while chairing the weekly progress review meeting on Thursday.

Three committees would keep an eye on construction work, as per the orders of the SC. These included advisory, technical and special committees, while an independent conservation engineer has also been appointed on the court’s order, he revealed.

He said the construction of track near Gulabi Bagh and Bhudu’s tomb on GT Road has started. Construction near Shalimar Garden, Chouburji and Lakshmi building will commence soon as work to cover the front elevations of these buildings with protective sheets was in progress.

He said another six sets of rolling stock had arrived in Pakistan from China and will be dispatched to Lahore after the fulfillment of customs formalities. So far, 11 out of the total 27 train sets have arrived in Pakistan.

Khawaja Ahmad Hassan observed that hurdles in the path of project completion had been removed as a result of the SC’s landmark judgment. He added directions by the apex court will be strictly adhered to while executing this mega project, which had already suffered inordinate delays due to litigation.

NESPAK General Manager Salman Hafeez informed the meeting that more than 80% of civil work as well as 36 % of electrical and mechanical has been completed. Progress on Package-I from Dera Gujjaran, GT Road to Chouburji was at 88%, while construction on Package-II, from Choburji to Ali Town, was 67 % complete.

Also, the depot near Dera Gujran was 83% complete and progress at Stabling Yard near Ali Town was at 84%.

Khawaja Ahmad Hassaan ordered the expediting of electrical and mechanical works on the project. He stated that 24-hour security cover had been arranged for Chinese engineers who could now work at night to complete the construction.

Historic sites ‘just as important as mass transit’

LAHORE:
Lahore Orange Line Metro Train Special Committee Chairman Justice Sayed Zahid Hussain, also a former judge of the Supreme Court of Pakistan, has said the preservation of historical sites and the provision of a mass transit system were equally important.

Speaking at a meeting of the Special Committee, he advised technical experts from different committees to maintain close coordination with executors and consultants of the project. He believed this would ensure the smooth completion of development work.

He underscored that all efforts should be made to strictly follow the order of the apex court for the safe and timely completion of the mass transit initiative. The former judge continued that this would avoid unnecessary complications and minimise public inconvenience.

Lahore's Mall road to be closed for three months



LAHORE:
After a long delay of 22 months, development works on the most critical section of the Lahore Orange Line Metro Train (OLMT) project, the underground Central Station near General Post Office (GPO) on the Mall Road, have kick started on Sunday.

Authorities have decided to close the Mall Road for a minimum of three months to complete cut and cover section of the metro train.

Speaking to The Express Tribune, the OMLT package-1 (from Dera Gujjran to Chaburji) contractor, Shahid Saleem, said that after taking precautionary measures as directed by the Supreme Court, the company has already initiated construction activity near all heritage sites where work could not be initiated earlier owing to litigation.
