Delay in Orange Line Metro Train Project

- Views 100 - 11 Aug 2018
The Orange Line Metro train project in Lahore was initiated by the then Chief Minister Punjab, Shahbaz Sharif and now this mega has been delayed once again and it will not run till March next year because of the inadequate funding.
It was expected that this mega project was to be completed in 2017 but due to legal case with Lahore High Court, this project was delayed as the construction work was stopped on different places. When authority concerned got the green signal from Supreme Court of Pakistan, they started the construction work on this project and the train was going to start its operation in March 2018. Now this project is once again delayed till next year 2019 because of lack of fund from the caretaker government.
