Punjab govt decides to change Metro stations design


After the rain inundated several stations, the Punjab government has accorded approval to change the design of Metro Bus Stations.

Under the new design, shades of the bus stations will be extended to ward off rainwater from dripping in during rains.

As part of the plan, fences will also be erected on both sides of metro bus route from IJP Road to Secretariat Bus Station, said an official who had attended a special meeting held under the chair of Punjab Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif regarding the re-designing of the bus stations. Rawalpindi-Islamabad Metro Pus Project Director Zahid Saeed, NESPAK MD Hanif Abbasi and others were present in the meeting.

Saeed told the meeting that the seepage from roofs of Metro Bus Stations has been overcome but change in its design was a must to prevent the rainwater from entering the stations in the future.
