Under China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC), the railway network is being upgraded and overhauled at the cost of over eleven billion dollars.
Our Karachi correspondent Altaf Pirzado reports that under the plan, the 1687 kilometers long Karachi-Peshawar Railway Line is being completely overhauled at a cost of 3.65 billion dollars.
With the upgradation of this railway, the train speed will be boosted to 160 kilometers per hour as compared to the present 60 to 105 kilometers per hour.
Other railway tracks are also being upgraded under CPEC while Pakistan's railway network will be connected with China's southern Xinjiang railway network.
