“The KCR project was launched in 1964 and remained functional until 1984 while it was suspended in 1999. The Sindh government took the initiative to revive the KCR in 2006. The estimated cost of the KCR project was $ 2.6 billion at the time, however, JAICA broke away from the project after the feasibility process in 2012. “

The KCR revival project proceeded rapidly according to the direction of the court: Sheikh Rashid | Instant News

Karachi – The Federal Minister of Railways, Sheikh Rashid Ahmad said that the Karachi Loop Railroad (KCR) revival project is on a “fast track” and will be revived soon as directed by the top court.

This he said while speaking to the media here at Shah Abdul Latif station on the KCR line on Sunday.

He added that all encroachment along the railroad tracks would be completely eliminated.

“Pakistani Railways are ready to spend Rs. 10.5 billion in the KCR rehabilitation project while the responsibility for constructing 24 suspension bridges rests on the shoulders of the provincial government, “said the minister of railways while highlighting the complete relationship between Pakistan Railways and the Sindh government on the revival of the historic project.

He stated, “There is no dispute between Sindh and the federal government and both are on the same page regarding the Karachi Loop Railway.”

He said the Sindh government had awarded a contract to the Frontier Works Organization (FWO) to build the necessary infrastructure such as underpasses and overhead bridges at level crossings.

He further said that the KCR trainer preparations are going well in Islamabad and a model trainer will soon be shown at the Cantonment Karachi station.

The minister visited the Gillani, Nazimabad, Gulbai and Shah Abdul Latif stations along the KCR line and inquired about the progress of his department on rehabilitation projects.

He said, “I will visit Karachi every 15 days to monitor work on the KCR project.”

He was accompanied by the CEO / Sr. GM Nisar Ahmad Memon, DS Karachi Arshad Salam Khattak and PD KCR Ameer Mohammad Daudpota.

A Supreme Court judge last Thursday heard the case on the revival of the Karachi Ring Railway (KCR).

The court ordered Pakistan Railways to clear land along the railway.

In February, a court ordered Pakistan Railways to revive and operate the KCR within six months and asked the provincial government to build the necessary infrastructure.

During last month’s trial, the railway secretary had informed the court that the KCR line was “almost” cleared of encroachment.

Regarding this, the Chief Justice regretted that the time given by the court had ended, but the KCR had not yet been revived.

KCR was commissioned in 1964 initially to help Pakistan Railways employees travel between their jobs. The service became a full circle of 44 km in 1970 and connected the four main working areas of Karachi: the port, the Sindh Industrial Trade Area (SITE), downtown commercial areas such as Saddar and the Landhi Industrial Estate. The KCR remained the public transportation of choice for the Karachi community until 1984 when the number of trains was reduced.
