LAHORE: Nineteen out of the 27 train sets for the Lahore Orange Line Metro Train have so far arrived in Pakistan while the remaining eight will soon be shipped to Karachi from the Shanghai port of China.

The Steering Committee for Lahore Orange Line Metro Train Project (LOMTP) Chairman Khawaja Ahmad Hassan told this to reporters during a marathon inspection of the ongoing works at the metro train project on Friday. He also visited the depot at Dera Gujjran, four elevated metro stations on the GT Road and stabling yard in Ali Town, Raiwind Road.
