Belt and Road Initiative” Helps Pakistan Improve Urban Transport System

For 26 years old electrical engineer Muhammad Shoaib, May 15th is a memorable day--As an only personnel who comes from Pakistan in corporation headquarters of CRRC ZELC, he saw the first metro of Pakistani first urban rail transit project rolled off the production line in Zhuzhou, Hunan Province.

This project is also named “Orange Line Project”, which provides services for Lahore--the capital of Punjab Province, second largest city of Pakistan. It is the early achievement and demonstration project of China-Pakistan Economic Corridor and is a demonstration project of China-Pakistan cooperation under the background of The Belt and Road Initiative.


On the morning of May 15th, with the whistle roaring, a metro which adopts the element of jasminum grandi florum (Pakistan’s National Flower) was drove out of the workshop slowly. “001” marked on the left of headstock indicates its special significance. After the metro stopped, Shoaib in the grey overalls boarded the metro together with guests. He smiled radiantly inside the coach which hanged the national flags of China and Pakistan. “Pakistan has the first metro line because of Lahore Orange Line Project. I’m very proud that our dream comes true in this moment.” he said.
Shoaib’s hometown is the capital of Pakistan--Islamabad. 7 years ago, he came to China as undergraduate and graduate majored in electrical engineering at Xi’an Jiaotong University. When he graduated, he entered CRRC ZELC. The second project he participated in is Lahore Orange Line Project, and he was in charge of electrical coupling. 

In April 2015, China and Pakistan signed the Orange Line Project EPC Contract and the contract price is about 1.6 billion dollars. The Project was financed by The Export-Import Bank of China and CRRC ZELC was responsible for manufacture. Besides, it adopted the standard of China and metro vehicle and electrical system of it all adopted Chinese equipments. 


The senior adviser of Punjab Province’s chief minister, Hassan, attended off-line ceremony. That the first metro of Orange Line Project rolled off the production line is the first achievement of the China-Pakistan corporation after the Belt and Road Forum for International Cooperation (BRF), which has exemplary effect. “China-Pakistan Economic Corridor is the important part of The Belt and Road. We hope to turn this project into a demonstration project, and continue advancing the China-Pakistan corporation.” Hassan said.
The project will go into service in the first half year of 2018. Thus, it will ease the traffic pressure of Lahore effectively by shortening the drive time to 45 minutes or so from 2.5 hours and providing services for 250 thousand people each day. According to the measure and calculation, in the first year, it can achieve about 9.29 billion rupees (about 610 million Yuan), and save about 5.62 billion rupees ( about 370 million Yuan). It will bring remarkable social and economic benefits.
Moreover, during the process of this project, it can provide great opportunities for talents, and hire various professionals for the further development of Pakistan’s transportation.

“Chinese people are very friendly for Pakistani. They always call me ‘brother’” , Shoaib looks back upon these seven years at China and feels that he never leaves his hometown. “Pakistani must love this gift from Chinese.”

LAHORE: The first consignment of five wagons for the country’s first metro train, the Orange Line Metro Train (OLMT), will reach Lahore by the end of this month.

The OLMT Steering Committee Chairman Khawaja Ahmad Hassaan told The Express Tribune that final inspection of train wagons was underway in China after which the first train wagons would be shipped for Pakistan. He said all 27 trains would reach Lahore by August or September as the government had targeted to start nation’s first metro train operations by the end of the current year.


Ahmed said over 71% civil works of the metro project had already been completed and he had directed project civil contractors to finalise two model stations, Salamatpura and Islam Park, by July 31. He had directed officials concerned to install information signs and ticketing kiosks and made arrangements for security of completed stations.

Answering a question, he disclosed, a sub-committee was in a process of finalising information sign designs.

“I have directed them to opt the best available option for which some experts have visited and inspected information signs of similar projects in different countries, including the United Arab Emirates (UAE). Most likely we will install information signs similar to the Dubai Metro as it has latest design and technology,” he maintained.


As monsoon had started earlier this year, he said, all contractors had been directed to provide safety gears to their workers and ensure proper safety measures were taken to avoid any untoward incident. Rescue 1122 had also been asked to conduct a short safety training course for its workers.

LAHORE: Lahore Orange Line Metro Train Steering Committee Chairman Khawaja Ahmad Hassan has said that the World Heritage Committee, in its 41th session held in Poland, has scrapped the proposal for putting Shalimar Garden, Lahore, on the danger list as a result of effective presentation and relevant reports presented by Pakistan at the forum.

In a statement on Sunday, Hassan said that apart from acknowledging Pakistan’s stance to conserve historical sites, the World Heritage Committee has neither objected on the present alignment nor asked to alter the track. This reflected the confidence of the world body in our government which would go a long way to complete the project at the earliest, he said.

He said that after thoroughly examining the technical data, heritage impact assessment report, vibration report and other relevant research studies on the Lahore Orange Line Metro Train Project, the world body has discarded the proposed draft decision forwarded by the critics of the project. It has altogether deleted nine out of 13 points of the draft decisions while two points have been modified in favor of Pakistan, he added.

He said that Pakistan effectively presented its case with substantial evidence; therefore, none of the 21 members of the committee opposed the country’s stance. Moreover, international archaeological experts have overwhelmingly opined that the Orange Line Project would not harm the historical buildings, he added.

Hassan also said that this was an expression of confidence of international community over the policies of Chief Minister Punjab Muhammad Shahbaz Sharif.

LAHORE - Five sets of train, each comprising five cars, have so far been manufactured in China for Lahore Orange Line Metro Train, which will operate at a commercial speed of 35 kilo meters per hour.


This was informed at a meeting held on Wednesday to review progress on Lahore Orange Line Metro Train Project with Kh Ahmad Hasan in the chair.


Arrangements for parking these coaches are being finalised at Dera Gujran Depot by laying a two kilo meters long track for this purpose. Hasan said alternate piece of land has been identified for shifting Munawar Mosque, situated at Nichelson Road.


Construction of new building of mosque will soon be started after payment to the present owners, he added. A two-day workshop for imparting safety training to the officials of various departments involved in execution of this project will be held from Friday to Saturday. The chairman of OLMT steering committee observed that the World Heritage Committee has neither objected on the present alignment of the train’s track outside Shalimar Gardens, nor it has asked for altering the track at this point. The World Heritage Committee also scrapped the proposal for putting the Gardens on the list of ‘World Heritage in Danger’ as a result of effective presentation technical data and relevant reports by Pakistan at this august forum. This decision was a great achievement at the part of our team participating in the conference, Hasan added.


He congratulated all the persons associated with this project in any capacity over this success.

Orange Metro Train to be connected with Metro Bus, Railway Station


LAHORE: For achieving the objectives of Mass Transit System in the provincial metropolis, the Lahore Orange Line Metro Train will be connected with the Lahore Metro Bus System (Green Line) as well as the Lahore Railway Station by constructing two special walkways for pedestrians.

Advisor to Chief Minister Punjab and Chairman of the Steering Committee for the Lahore Orange Line Metro Train Project (LOMTP) Ahmad Hassan informed on Friday, that the Lahore Development Authority would execute this project at a cost of Rs 2.75 billion.

He said that an underpass would be constructed for connecting the underground Anarkali Station of Orange Line, being constructed at Jain Mandir area, with the M.A.O College station of Lahore Metro Bus. Pedestrians will be able to embark or disembark from one mode of transport for getting ride on the other one by using this walkway.

Similarly, a 40-feet elevated ‘walkulator’ (moving walkway) will be installed for connecting Lahore Railway Station with the Bohrwala Chowk Station of Orange Line Metro Train at Nichelson Road.

Passengers intending to move between these two locations will not have to walk a step for this purpose. They will be able to go from one point to the other just by standing on this moving ‘walkulator’, he informed.

He said that the LDA had invited applications for pre-qualification of engineering firms and contractors, willing to execute the project by September 9, 2017.

I guess this is an elevated 'walkulator'

An overall 15 percent electrical and mechanical work of the project has also been completed. Civil work on available area along package-I had almost been completed, the meeting was told.

Khawaja Ahmad Haassan directed that every station of the metro train should be treated as an individual project and a special task force may be deputed at every point for speedy execution of civil as well as E&M works simultaneously besides fixing separate deadlines for completing work on every station. The meeting was informed that work for construction of a storm water drain at Mecload Road was being executed at five points and it was expected to be completed within one month at this road.

As many as 191 traffic wardens have been deployed for working in three shifts along package-II of the project for ensuring smooth flow of traffic in these areas. NESPAK has finalized the design for construction of special enclaves on footpaths along the metro train for placing skips of collecting solid waste, the meeting was told.
