New life in Lahore Rapid Mass Transit (LRMT) Rail Project

The chief minister of Punjab Ch. Parvez Ilahi announced on 26-sep-07 that the Lahore subway train project will be started after Eid (14 oct). Many train lines are proposed to be built. The first line is the Green line covering 27km area from Shahdara to Hamza Chowk. This line will take 3.5 years to build and cost around 3 billion dollars. The original plan estimated the completion date in 2012 but the authorities want it to be built till 2011 before the World Cup.

You can find a lot of information about the project on the website: and in a forum thread at:

to be very true this train thing sounds funny to me...if u remember there was attempt to make bridge before desired time in karachi recently and it was so shabby that it slumped within 20 days after its "IFTITAH" its good not to keep up our spirits high for such things isnt it???
