Caretaker Minister for Railways, Communication, and Maritime Shahid Ashraf Tarar on Tuesday said the existing infrastructure, rolling stock, factories and railway stations would be improved through private sector investments.

“The Pakistan Railways is following a three-pronged strategy to revive and expand railways in the country which include safety, efficiency, and self-reliance,” the interim minister said while chairing a high-level meeting at the Ministry of Railways.

The minister said that the Pakistan Railways had taken several initiatives to cut costs and enhance its revenue.
“The improvement in administrative and operational areas are under way in Pakistan Railways which are expected to bring efficiency,” he added.

He said that the journey by train was a great means of connecting people living in different regions of Pakistan besides the preferred mode of a comfortable journey for the masses.
