Karachi (HRNW) The Supreme Court has directed the Sindh government to resume work on the Karachi Circular Railway and submit a progress report in two weeks.

A judgement by Chief Justice Gulzar Ahmed and Justice Ijazul Ahsan was issued on Thursday. The court had taken up the suo motu hearing on the Pakistan Railways deficit.

“As regards to KCR, it has been stated that considerable work on the ground has been done and that there are bottlenecks because of a drain near Urdu University and Green Line near Nazimabad,” said the order.

The Railways secretary told the court that if the Sindh government takes “immediate action and makes way for the railway line at these two bottlenecks, the remaining work of KCR will be completed and it will be made operational”.
