Pakistan Railways is teaming up with private sector investors to lay fiber optic cables alongside its extensive 7,791-kilometer railway network. This collaboration aims to boost the department’s finances while enhancing digital connectivity across the country.

The plan is straightforward: private investors will pay fees for the right to install fiber optic cables on railway land, generating revenue for Pakistan Railways and improving national digital connectivity.

The Ministry of Railways has submitted a proposal for this venture, receiving approval to create a new policy with input from stakeholders. Although the project’s start date is uncertain, it signifies a significant step forward for Pakistan Railways. Beyond financial gains, it promises to elevate the nation’s digital landscape, fostering digital economic growth.

This initiative showcases Pakistan Railways’ commitment to adapt and explore new pathways for sustainable development, aligning with the country’s broader digital transformation goals.
