CPEC Urban Transport: 4 Mass Transit Systems to be part of CPEC for Karachi Lahore Peshawar Quetta'The inclusion of the four schemes would increase the size of CPEC to nearly $54 billion.

ISLAMABAD: Pakistan and China are set to make four new infrastructure schemes worth $8 billion part of the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor next week but prospects for early inclusion of Punjab government’s Orange Line Metro project and the Karachi Circular Railway remain bleak. The inclusion of the four schemes would increase the size of CPEC to nearly $54 billion.

The upcoming sixth meeting of the Joint Cooperation Committee, the highest decision-making body of CPEC, would be different from past five meetings. This time, all chief ministers for the first time are expected to attend the JCC. Each of them would be seeking inclusion of mass transit projects in their provincial capitals in the CPEC framework, according to officials of the Planning Ministry

Punjab Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif would be keen to get the $1.6 billion Orange Line Metro project into CPEC to win Rs20 billion tax concessions. Punjab government would also seek inclusion of a $662 million steel mill project, which is planned to be set up at Chiniot, in the CPEC framework, according to Punjab’s planning minister.

Sindh Chief Minister Murad Ali Shah would want the much-delayed $2.6 billion Karachi Circular Railway to get a place in CPEC after the Japanese have apparently backed out. K-P Chief Minister Pervaiz Khattak has also forwarded the proposal of a Peshawar Metro bus project to be made part of CPEC while the Balochistan chief minister would like to have the Quetta Light Rail project in the CPEC.

However, none of these four mass transit projects would be officially made part of the CPEC, during the upcoming JCC meeting. The Joint Working Group on Infrastructure has not discussed these projects, which is a prerequisite, said sources in the planning ministry. The agenda of the JCC, which will meet in Beijing, has already been finalised, they said. However, the expectations are that the JCC would forward these projects to the respective working group for its technical and financial evaluation, the sources said.

Few days back, the Sindh CM requested the prime minister to make the Karachi Circular Railway a part of the CPEC framework, said Ahsan Iqbal on Thursday. A planning ministry official said that Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif has set up a committee under the joint leadership of Member Infrastructure of Planning Commission Malik Ahmad Khan and Additional Chief Secretary Sindh. The joint committee would work to resolve the issue of land between Pakistan Railways and the Sindh government for smooth execution of the Karachi Circular Railway

Pakistan Railways has demanded money in return for land, which the Sindh government is not eager to pay due to its impact on the cost of the project, said the officials. However, if Karachi Circular Railway eventually becomes part of the CPEC framework, the provincial government may get concessional financing from China like the one offered to Orange Line Metro project.

Reserve Orange Train pink seats for women, children

For facilitating their journey with comfort, ease and safety, seats with pink marks should be reserved for women and children in every compartment of Lahore Orange Line Metro Trains like Dubai Metro Train.

Khawaja Ahmad Hassaan, Chairman of Lahore Orange Line Metro Train Project (LOMTP) Steering Committee, directed this while chairing the weekly progress review meeting of the steering committee of the project here on Wednesday. He directed all the departments concerned as well as the contractors for gearing up their efforts for starting metro train operation in the city by the 25th of December this year.

The meeting was informed that so far 61 percent civil work of the project had been completed. Progress on package-I from Dera Gujran, GT Road to Chauburji was 77.2 percent, on package-II from Chauburji to Ali Town was 47 percent, on Depot near Dera Gujran was 67.5 percent while on stabling yard near Ali Town it was 51.6 percent.

The meeting was informed that all irritants in the execution of work on Package-II had been removed and construction activity was smoothly in progress at this stretch. All the 13 elevated stations along the track were being built simultaneously besides preparation of casting yards for pre-casting transoms and U-tub girders. First consignment being imported for pre-casting these structures will be delivered on 23rd of March and pre-cast activity will start very next day

Amazing work, Lahore!

Questions: has the dispute surrounding the Chauburji been resolved? And has work resumed in the area or did the authorities changed the metro plan?
