The construction work on this venture started in 2014, however, it was stopped after the Lahore Development Authority remained unsuccessful to release the funds to the construction firms.
Back in 2018, the court had directed the authority to issue funds that costs Rs.400 million and Rs.600 million to the contractors after which the construction work restarted.
It is anticipated that the project would be facilitating more than 350,000 passengers annually.
