Karachi: The Green Line bus project, according to Sindh Infrastructure Development Company Limited (SIDCL) experts, is nearing completion, and service will begin in November with 40 vehicles. The rest of the buses for the Green Line projects have arrived in Karachi, according to SIDCL specialists who briefed elected lawmakers from the Muttahida Qaumi Movement-Pakistan (MQM-P) about the various transportation projects at the office of national communication.
Kunwar Naveed Jamil, MQM-deputy P’s convener and parliamentary leader in the Sindh Assembly, was there, as was Federal Minister Syed Aminul Haque, MNAs Kishwar Zehra and Osama Qadri, MPA Javed Hanif, and Abbas Jaffery.
The MQM-P leaders were also advised by SIDCL specialists that the Orange Line project was nearing completion, and that work on the other two lines — the Red and Blue Lines — would begin as soon as the Sindh government approved funding.
The repair of roads and a tree-planting effort along the Green Line project’s courses, according to Hague, should begin immediately. He also ordered the SIDCL specialists to ensure that a green belt is established along the project’s lines and that passengers have access to computerized ticketing.
