Pakistan should extend ML-1 until Gwadar

Pakistan should seriously consider extending Pakistan Railways Main Line- 1 from Karachi to Gwadar.  The country can achieve numerous benefits with this development including:

Seaports Connection:

The extension will connect all of Pakistan Seaports - Port of Karachi, Port Bin Qasim and Port of Gwadar together with the Main Line helping Cargo move more efficiently between the ports and to the north of the country.

Promote Beach Tourism:

A passenger line will also open up the coastal areas for tourism mainly the beaches along the entire route.

Develop the entire coastal belt:

This will develop communities living across the coastal belt.

Importance of Gwadar:

Gwadar will boost due to its direct connection with Karachi, one the world's mega city.

Connection to Iran and Europe/Africa: 

The Main-Line 1 can also continue on wards to Iranian port of Bandar Abbas and can meet their main line connecting to Europe and Africa via ferries to Dubai.

Fortunately, Karachi's existing Circular Railway infrastructure can be used to connect ML-1 to Makran Coast without acquiring expensive land in Karachi.

Why living in Centaurus Islamabad makes sense

Centaurus Islamabad is one of the landmarks of the Capital City. With a huge shopping mall in the heart of the capital near business buildings and accessible via Islamabad Metro, the complex makes a lot of sense for anyone who wants to live in one of those apartments. Definitely these apartments are pricey but a pride to live in. Some of the best reasons to live in Centaurus Apartments are:

1. Blue Area

Yes its the location! Centaurus Apartments are located in the heart of the Blue Area - Islamabad's business district. So anyone who works in the Blue Area of the Capital City should consider to make Centaurus as their new home.

2. Retail, Food and Entertainment

Living in Centaurus means that you're living in a shopping mall. With several stores, restaurants, fast food options and a movie theater just downstairs, you're an elevator away from the happening life of Islamabad. The mall is the largest and most visited shopping mall in the capital city.


The views from Centaurus Apartments are mesmerizing. You can see Margalla Hills which are technically the foot hills of the Himalayas. So if you live in Centaurus Apartments, you get to see Himalaya Mountains from your window every day.

4. Metro

You don't need a car or a driver if you live in Centaurus. Centaurus has a dedicated Metro Bus Station with its own name. Metro bus makes it easier for you to travel around anywhere in Islamabad and the city of Rawalpindi - from Ayub Park to the Sporting venues. You can also go to Rawalpindi Railway Station in Saddar via Metrobus to catch a train to anywhere in Pakistan without worrying about the Parking. Another metro line to link Islamabad Metro to the new Islamabad International Airport is under way, after which you can use Metrobus to go to the airport as well.
