Eid

ISLAMABAD: The Pakistan Railways has decided to restore the Mohenjo Daro Express, a train service that connects the cities of Kotri and Rohri via Dadu and Habibkot.

According to sources at the railway ministry, the decision will be implemented from July 20.

The Mohenjo Daro Express was suspended in 2020 due to the damage caused by the floods to the railway tracks.

The train service was one of the many that were affected by the natural disaster that disrupted the rail network across the country. The restoration of the train service is part of the efforts by the Pakistan Railways to resume its normal operations and facilitate the passengers and tourists.

The Mohenjo Daro Express will consist of a total of eight coaches of economy class and will run twice a week on Tuesdays and Fridays.

The train will depart from Kotri at 7:00 am and reach Rohri at 1:00 pm. On its return journey, it will leave Rohri at 2:00 pm and arrive at Kotri at 8:00 pm. The fare for the train service will be Rs300 per passenger.

Mohenjo Daro is an archaeological site in Sindh that dates back to the Indus Valley Civilization, one of the oldest civilizations in the world. The site was discovered in 1921 and was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1980.

Pakistan Railways has been restoring more trains in recent months after repairing the railway tracks that were affected by the floods last year.

In October and November 2022, Pakistan Railways restored nine trains, including Tezgam Express, Hazara Express, Baha-ud-Din Zakaria Express, Karakoram Express, and Pak-Business Express. The restoration of these trains aims to provide better services to the passengers and generate more revenue for the department.
