Punjab Chief Minister Shehbaz Sharif will witness a test run of orange train from Dera Gujran to Lakshmi Chowk today.

According to a statement from the Punjab government, Shahbaz Sharif, Chief Minister of Punjab, inaugurated the test run of the Orange Line Metro Train (OLMT), which has been tested once earlier.

"Orange line metro train will be completed in three months InshaaAllah and after the coming elections, blue line will be completed InshaaAllah", he said.

The Orange Line Train is said to be the common man's ride that will move through places where people with low income and living standards are spending lives. Great significance of this project is that it will bridge the gap between elite and the poor, and the main beneficiares of this facility would be students, teachers, doctors, women and old people.

A subsequent joint press conference with Peters - who is also Foreign Minister - confirmed the arrangement. Ardern: "This is a letter that simply sets out our usual operational day-to-day way of working anyway".

"I am disappointed in PTI who tried to sabotage Orange Line project by getting a stay order against it and delaying the project for 22 months".

Out of the total line, a 25.4-km section is to be elevated, while a 1.72-km section will be underground, and 0.7 km of the track will be laid in the transition zone between elevated and underground sections. This amount of passengers by 2025 is expected to increase around 500, 000 on daily basis, and the OLMT is already designed in a manner to cater this increase.

"Once completed, you and I will travel in this Orange Train".

It was further told that up till now, more than 88 per cent construction work had been completed.

The Chinese-made metro train bogies are air-conditioned and comfortable. Each train consists of five bogies and each bogie is 20 meters long with 60 seats. 200 passengers can travel in each bogie and public address system has also been installed for the convenience of the passengers. The doors of the electric train are fully automatic and have also been installed at the platform to ensure double safety of the passengers. Installation of electric accelerators is in full swing as well, the officials informed.
