History

The Lahore Metro was first proposed in 1991 and reviewed again in 1993 by the Lahore Traffic & Transport Studies, funded by the World Bank. The project was subsequently shelved.{{sfn|Asian Development Bank 2008|p=2}} In 2005, the Ministry of Transport revisited the project and carried out a feasibility study. In 2007, the Asian Development Bank provided {{PKRConvert|1|b}} to conduct a study on the project.{{sfn|The Express Tribune 2011}} The initial plan called for an {{convert|82|km|abbr=on}} rail network with 60 stations to be constructed in four separate phases. The first phase involved the construction of a {{convert|27|km|abbr=on}} rail line between Gajju Matta and Shahdara Bagh, with an {{convert|11.6|km|abbr=on}} section underground. Construction was expected to start in 2008 and be completed by 2010.{{sfn|The Express Tribune 2011}} However, in 2008, the project was shelved again as priorities shifted to other projects.{{sfn|Asian Development Bank 2009}} In June 2010, Malaysia based Scomi International proposed a US $1.15 billion monorail–based alternative, however the project was not approved.{{sfn|The Express Tribune 2011}} In May 2014, an agreement was signed so that the construction of the Orange Line could begin.
