Railways to install 300 trackers in trains by next week


Pakistan Railways will install around three hundred trackers in trains by next week to enable passengers track trains' position and movements while traveling.

An official of the Ministry of Railways told APP that installation of the tracking system will help Pakistan Railways to monitor trains' movement and fuel expenditure.

He said these trackers have been provided by a local engineer free of charge.

The official said Control Rooms in Divisional Headquarters are also being modernized so that the concerned staff on duty can see position of trains and take steps in case of any emergency.

He further said Pakistan Railways has planned to dualize Railway track between Lahore and Peshawar via Rawalpindi under China Pakistan Economic Corridor in next five years.

He said the Main Line-1 from Karachi to Peshawar via Lahore would also be upgraded under CPEC.
