PESHAWAR: Chief Minister Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Ali Amin Khan Gandapur said the government has planned to launch a local train service in Peshawar to overcome growing traffic congestion in the city.

The meeting aimed to discuss issues and development in provincial metropolis Peshawar.

The meeting focused on a range of issues including healthcare, security, traffic management, infrastructure improvement, provision of clean drinking water, sewerage, and other related concerns affecting the populace of Peshawar.

Chief Minister Gandapur said that Peshawar is everyone’s city, and its development is our top priority. We will strive to make Peshawar once again a city of blossoms.

He further added, “We aim to transition Peshawar’s street lights to solar energy and are considering projects such as running trains to alleviate traffic congestion.

Discussions also highlighted the possibility of engaging private companies to implement a train system based on the BRT model.

The issue of sanitation in Peshawar is grave and will be addressed on a priority basis with sustainable solutions,” assured Gandapur.
