The metro train will first have a test-run for three months, after which the service will officially be launched for public. Its test-run will start from December 10.
All the technical and mechanical work on the project has been completed.
“Once the train starts, several tests of aligning, breaking and signaling will be conducted,” Punjab Transport Secretary Asad Rehman Gilani said.
“And all of the services will then be integrated into the train.”
During the technical test, five bogies will be attached to the engine which will cover a distance of 27 kilometers in 35 minutes, he said.
The finance department has started working out the service fare which is expected to be between Rs40 to Rs50.
The project is expected to facilitate more than 350,000 passengers
