The Central Development Working Party (CDWP) on Tuesday recommended the Karachi Circular Railway project — worth Rs 20.17 billion — to the Executive Committee of the National Economic Council (ECNEC) for further consideration.

The CDWP met to discuss projects related to Karachi’s social sector development.

“Construction of Infrastructure (flyover, underpass structure)” for the elimination of level crossing from the loop section of Karachi Circular Railways was also pitched at the meeting.

The proposed structures will help in eliminating 22 level crossings located in the KCR loop from Drigh Road to Karachi City Station and shall also make it a reliable mode of public transport.

Senior officials from Planning Commission, Federal ministries and divisions also participated in the meeting while representatives from provincial governments participated through video conferences.
