Pakistan Railways will develop modern parking sites outside railway stations and vacant railway land near markets to increase revenue for the department.
“These parking places will not only facilitate the passengers but also provide parking facilities to the citizens of the concerned city,” official sources told APP.
Initially, they said the parking sites would be made for two to three years that would be helpful in increasing income for Pakistan Railways.
In this regard, Minister for Railways Khawaja Saad Rafique directed the concerned authorities to set up projects of international standard, they added.
The sources said that it was also directed to upgrade the existing parking system of Pakistan Railways at different railway stations across the country. They said that a uniform policy would also be evolved for the improvement of commercial and land department so that income of the Pakistan Railways could be increased.
The sources said that earlier a latest modern parking system was successfully working at Lahore Railway Station under the public private partnership policy.
