After Metro Bus project in Lahore, Rawalpindi-Islamabad and Multan, the PML-N government has come up with another landmark project in the history of the country i.e. Orange Line Metro Train (OLMT). Keeping in view the increasing population of the metropolitan city of Lahore along with over-urbanisation, OLMT is a blessing as it will help facilitate more than 250,000 commuters on daily basis. Besides it will also help in resolving the traffic issues that are faced by the citizens every now and then. Once completed, OLMT will certainly transform the public transportation system of Pakistan in the coming years. Therefore, hats off to PML-N government as almost 50 per cent of the civil works of the project have been completed.
It is pertinent to mention here that OLMT is fast becoming a reality soon due to the strong support from the Chinese government as the project is financed by EXIM bank of China. Despite speculations and propaganda, there is no doubt that the dream of OLMT is materialising into a reality due to the sincere efforts of PML-N leadership. Moreover, the government is leaving no stone unturned to protect the heritage sites of the city and taking all possible steps to preserve these buildings and monuments of historical importance. It is hoped that the project will be completed on time and will revolutionise the way people travel as it will make the commute trouble-free.
