China-produced engines and coaches for Pakistan’s first metro line were unveiled in Lahore, the country’s second largest city, on Oct. 8, Chinese media outlet thepaper.cn reported.

The metro trains arrived at the city of Lahore last Sunday from central China’s Hunan province, and a grand delivery ceremony was held by related departments of Pakistan.

The Orange Line Metro Project was signed in April 2015. It is the first project of the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor under the framework of the Belt and Road Initiative.

As a comprehensive rail transit project, the Orange Line has fully adopted Chinese technologies, standards and equipment. Once operational, the metro is estimated to serve a quarter of a million people each day, and the train will run at 80 kilometers per hour.
