The Project envisages construction of 105 km railway line linking Block-II of the Thar Coal Mines to Pakistan Railways Main Line-1 (ML-1) on Public Private Partnership
The Project aims to significantly ease congestion created by the trucks which transport millions of tones of coal per annum from
the mines to the nearby power plants (Jamshoro, Lucky) and upcountry
The Project has been conceived to enable transportation of 4.2 million tons of coal per annum; however,
the design capacity would be enough to transport over 10 million tons of coal per annum.
The Project is also anticipated to fetch significant economic and environmental benefits in terms of vehicle operating costs
& time savings,
reduction in carbon emissions and job creation.
The Project will be implemented using Project Finance structure whereby the private party will form a dedicated project company to implement and execute the Project over proposed concession of 32 years (which includes 2
years construction period).
