LAHORE: The handing over of the Orange Line Metro Train project’s entire electrical, mechanical and civil work to the Punjab Mass Transit Authority from the Chinese joint venture has begun, however the train’s commercial operations may take another three months due to technical, administrative and the ongoing pandemic issues.
