Federal Minister for Planning, Development and Special Initiatives Asad Umar on Sunday announced that the Karachi Green Line project will be ready for a trial run in the next 10 days.

The minister took to his official Twitter handle to state that the project was reviewed in “detail” on Saturday.

“After the trial run Prime Minister Imran Khan will come to Karachi and inaugurate the project,” Umar wrote.

Furthermore, after a trial of “about two weeks” the commercial operation will launch on December 25, he maintained.

Earlier this year the first consignment of 40 Green Line Bus Rapid Transit System (BRT) —the port city’s first mass transit system — buses arrived from China.
