Digitization of Karachi Circular Railway (KCR) Line and Delineation of Encroachments on Railway Land


Karachi Urban Transport Corporation (KUTC)

Scope of Work:

  • A study to formulate Resettlement Action Plan for the encroachments to be affected due to the upgradation of two rail-tracks: Loop-1 (City Station – Drigh Road – Malir Halt) and Loop-2 (Drigh Road – Liaquatabad – Wazir Mansion – City Station).
  • Quick-Bird satellite imagery, GPS ground surveys alongwith existing KCR maps/drawings were used to identify and measure encroachments along the said tracks. Also the existing outdated maps/drawings prepared in 1945 by British Administration were updated.
