As the PC-1 project has been approved at a cost of Rs 8.70 billion, it has been declared that government will finance reintegration and dualization of Karachi Circular Railway (KCR) Phase-II mainly through local funding, relying least on foreign financial assistance. The details have predicted that the local component of financing is Rs7.389 billion while government would arrange Rs1.31 billion. The project envisions reintegration and dualization of the existing 30-km tracks of the KCR from Karachi City Station to the Drigh Road Station (via loop) by laying one additional track using PSC (pre-stressed concrete sleepers) and W-14 fittings. The infrastructure will be elevated in phase II to accommodate 24,000 passengers daily with an average operating speed of 50 KMPH.The existing tracks will be renewed to the same level of additional track. New bridges will be built for additional tracks, and station buildings will be advanced. Standard-I colour light signalling system for double track would be installed on all stations. The project is being executed to comply with the decision of the Supreme Court of Pakistan under CP No.92010 dated 06.03.2020. Additionally, Pakistan Railways may continue its negotiations on planning of upgrading the KCR through CPEC.
