Infrastructural development is a vital component that paves the way for country’s economic and social growth. It enhances the productivity of a country at major levels. Keeping this in mind, the Government of Punjab responded swiftly and initiated projects like Metro Bus System in densely populated cities of Lahore and Rawalpindi to provide state of the art means of transportation to the local residents.
In addition, the ongoing Lahore Orange Line Metro Train project which will facilitate over 0.5 million commuters daily is an ample proof that shows the government’s firm resolve to enhance the infrastructure of the Provincial metropolis. Likewise, the news about the proposed construction of Shahdara Expressway project is also a welcome step to ease traffic flow as it will facilitate more than 30,000 vehicles on daily basis. The government of Punjab acknowledges the needs of its people and is leaving no stone unturned to uplift the social and economic lives of its people. It is hoped that such initiatives will continue in the future as well and contribute in furthering the socio-economic development of Pakistan in general and Punjab in particular.
