The Karachi Circular Railway in the second phase of service restoration  has started running from the Orangi Station to City Station. 

Earlier, the KCR was operating between the City Station and Pepri Station.

We used to take a rickshaw which would cost Rs250 to Rs300, now we can reach our destination in just Rs30, a commuter said.

It’s been a year since I went to my mother’s place, a woman said. I had stopped going because I had to take the bus there, she said. “When I heard today that the train has started operating, I became really excited."

There are trucks and other vehicles just few feet from the tracks.

“There are parking on many spots [on the track], unmanned level crossings,” said KCR driver Zahirur Rehman. “Because of public, we have to run the train at the speed of 20-25 km per hour.”

There are still neither a safety barrier along the 14 kilometre track nor any other security arrangement.

    Encroachment should be removed from the railway land and strict action be taken against those who are responsible and failed to discharge their duties actually the departmental officials are instruments of corruption who allowed incroachment to them in past. Run the train on recommend speed.

    All the illegal ebchrochments should be removed immediately and a barrier wall should be erected to avoid any accidents.

    Actually railway staff and local police grabbed lands and presently occupied their near and dear, so administration is not interested to remove, otherwise there’s no question of railway land to be occupied, I personally seen in mangopir railway station and site railway station houses are constructed just attached to railway track and bridge near board office north nazimabad station was demolished purposely by KMC/Sindh government so they can grabbed land and sale the same in future,
