For the past few years, Lahore, the capital of Punjab, has been at front and center when it comes to new transportation projects and this time the situation is no different. Ater the initiation of Metro Buses and Speedo Buses for feeder routes, CM Punjab is looking to introduce ropeways transport in the city.
Shehbaz Sharif has directed the concerned authorities to prepare feasibility reports to run the ropeways transport featuring cable cars at three different points in Lahore; from Imamia Colony to Railway Station, Jehangir Tomb to Greater Iqbal Park, from Jalo Mor to Thokar Niaz Baig and also another one from Islamabad to Murree.
Reportedly, a foreign ropeway manufacturing company will work on this new project to provide cable car transport, alongside Punjab government. The new project is aimed at reducing the burden of traffic on the roads whilst providing an innovative way to travel within the city.
Currently, the Orange Line Train Project is underway in Lahore and CM Punjab is also looking to introduce Blue and Purple line train in Lahore. Feasibility study and presentation of the Blue and Purple line projects have already been completed and the two projects will be worth around three trillion.
