    Lahore MRT (Mass Rapid Train) is the way to go, it should be built in a careful manner so that next 40-50 years its flecsible to be upgraded all the time with new innovations in underground and overground facilities of Lahore.

    Lahore MRT needs to have access to tourist places of Lahore, education institutes, road and railway junctions connecting to outer cities of Lahore.

    Further, careful planning needs to be done, in order for Lahore MRT, to give new economic reach, and business opportunities. It should be accessible to regular day to day Lahoris to and fro from shopping malls, offices, cinemas and major sports areas.

    Taking note from British Companies, as well as Japanese should not be an hindrance.

    Again, careful work is need to built Lahore MRT and should include Lahore's expansion around Lahore Rivers new development schemes.

    For sure it was not a need of todays. Will be an easy target for terrorist to blow up the tracks and train. If they are really sincere to the people they should invwst in security rather than these luxuries.

    To create security you need development. This is not a luxury, its needed to move people around the city quickly so people can get to work.

    Its like saying the Europeans who invaded America should never have built colonies in fear of being attacking by Indians.

    You build bigger and better than them then obliterate them into the history books.

    But whats the point of development when it will be an easy target to bomb. I am not against development but I am against thi metro system just imagine how many people can get killed in the current security system. And before developing any thing the people of the country should be capable of handling the system. Do u really thing the illiterate people will care about this metro system?

    Finally! When you don't have electricity to run your AC in 45+ temps of Lahore just hitch a ride on the new metro train and have a good, long, comfortable night. EVEN BETTER, when your industry is down in the dumps and you can't feed or educate your kids just distract yourself by hitching a ride on Lahore's new metro train or just throw those damn rascals on the track and live happily ever after!

    Yaar Bada Purana Post quote kiya hai,I had to search first & see if i had commented on something like this
    On topic Power Projects,Improving the Law & Order,Reducing the time for Project Clearnce & Improving Transportation [PR & Highways] Should be the top priority.Metro Rail will surely help in de-congesting the City but Industrial Dev should be the 1st & Only priority at the moment.
