Underground Mass Transit System for Lahore Approved by Punjab Cabinet

Lahore: On Friday, December 16, Punjab Chief Minister (CM) Pervaiz Elahi approved the development of an underground mass transit system for Lahore. The mass transit system will be carried out with assistance and funding from the Asian Development Bank (ADB). Eight large train stations will be built as part of the project. The proposed train will run from Valencia Town to Kalma Chowk, Liberty Chowk, and Data Darbar all the way to the airport.

The Planning and Development (P&D) Board and the transport department will now negotiate with the ADB for financial and technical support. This approval has come from the provincial cabinet.

The project is believed to have a substantial influence on Lahore's public transportation system by giving commuters a reliable form of transit. The city's traffic jams and air pollution are expected to be reduced by the proposed underground mass transit system, which will also enable quicker and more convenient travel for both locals and visitors alike.

It is relevant to mention here that the Provincial Metropolis has already been highly populated and one of the most polluted cities in the world. The initiation of providing an underground environment-friendly mode of transportation would significantly reduce the menace of the ever-increasing pollution in the city.
