    Lahore Rapid Mass Transit System

    Lahore Rapid Mass Transit System


    The Lahore Metro or Lahore Rapid Mass Transit System (LRMTS)
    was a light rail transit system designed for Lahore, the second largest city of Pakistan. The system was first proposed in 1991 and was updated in 1993 by Lahore Traffic and Transport Studies, funded by the World Bank. The project was subsequently shelved. In 2005, the Transport Department of Pakistan revisited the project and carried out a feasibility study. In 2007, the Asian Development Bank provided PKR1 billion to conduct a study on the project. An 82 km (51 mi) long rail network with 60 stations was to be constructed in four separate phases as a part of the project. The first phase involved construction of a 27 km (17 mi) km railway line called green line which would include an 11.6 km (7.2 mi) underground network. This line would carry 250,000–300,000 passengers after construction. The construction was expected to start in 2008 and complete in 2010 However, the new Pakistani government in 2008, shifted its priorities to other projects. In June 2010, Malaysia based Scomi International proposed a US$1.15 billion monorail–based alternative to LRMTS. However, the project was not approved as the Chinese government agreed to loan the LRMTS US$1.8 billion. The infrastructural investment required in LRMTS was US$61.9 million per km which was higher than the average range of US$13–50 million per km for similar projects. In 2012, the LRMTS was abandoned in favour of more cost–effective Lahore Metro Bus System by the Punjab government.

    The Green Line
    The Green Line was expected to cost US$2.4 billion to construct and would have extend from Shahdara to Hamza Town. The total length of Green Line was expected to be 27 km (17 mi), with 11.6 km (7.2 mi) underground and 15.4 km (9.6 mi) overhead. There would be in total 12 underground stations and 10 overhead stations built. The route of green line was changed slightly. Instead of going to the Regal Chowk, the route was designed to pass through Lyton road and then join Lake road in the previously proposed route.

    Orange Line
    The Orange Line was expected to cost US$1.9 billion to construct and would have extend from Ali Town to Dera Gujran. The total length of Orange Line was expected to be 27 km (17 mi), with 7 km (4.3 mi) underground and 20 km (12 mi) overhead. 6 underground stations and 20 overhead stations would have been built


     


    Purple Line
    The Purple Line would have joined the Green line, at Date Darban and the Orange Line, at Lakshami, to the Allama Iqbal International Airport.
