Sindh Transport and Information Minister Sharjeel Inam Memon declared that the provincial government intends to begin construction on the Karachi-Sukkur bullet train project. 

He made this statement about Karachi’s Yellow Line BRT project while serving as the meeting’s chair. The conference was attended by a World Bank delegation as well as representatives from the transport ministry. 

The minister indicated that the Sindh government’s planned Karachi-Sukkur bullet train project will require World Bank funding. He told the audience that the Sindh government is working hard to improve Karachi’s transportation system. 

According to the minister, the World Bank is collaborating with the government to create the first phase of the Karachi-Hyderabad bullet train project. He also invited the World Bank to send 300 electric buses to Karachi as part of the People Bus Service initiative. 

In a similar development, while presiding over a meeting on Bus Rapid Transit (BRTs), Yellow Line, and Red Line, Sindh Chief Minister Syed Murad Ali Shah decided to construct an alternate bridge at Jam Sadique bridge and acquire 32 acres of land at Cattle Colony for the installation of a Biogas plant at Bhains Colony. 

While briefing the Chief Minister, Sharjeel Memon stated that the project’s overarching goal was to promote mobility, accessibility, and safety along the Yellow BRT corridor alignment. 

Sharjeel said that the Sindh government and the World Bank agreed to conduct a collaborative survey of the BRT Yellow Line route, a $438 million project designed at enhancing public transportation in Karachi. 

A 21-kilometer-long Yellow line corridor would be built connecting Jam Sadiq Bridge, Main Korangi Road, FTC Interchange, Shah Rah Faisal and Shah Rah Quaideen, and the Kashmir Road Interchange of BRT. 

During the meeting, Sharjeel Memon informed the CM that the BRT Yellow Line project was being funded by the World Bank and would cost Rs 61 billion. The BRT system would include 28 stations, six underpass stations, nine underpasses, two U-turns, and two bridges. He revealed that the BRT Yellow Line would include 268 diesel Hybrid vehicles with a daily passenger capacity of 300,000 people.
