Very nice! The project is looking like it will meet international standards, this will be just as good as the metro bus system in Istanbul!

Looks very nice. Once completed it may be arguably most beautiful BRTS in south asia.

This thing will change the way lahore looks and travels.

My city has BRTS but it is nearly not as good as this one will look like.

i am glad for you guys.

Thumbs up

Great going, the quality is superb. Inshallah the MBS project will be a trend setter for more such projects in other big cities of Pakistan.

Many thanks for beautiful words Illusionist.

Please can you share pictures of your city's Metro bus track that would be great addition for comparison and guide.

Is there any facility for handicap/old/wheelchair people on Metro bus track/stations?.

No disrespect. What do you think didn't american, British Japanese and Australian thought about burning bus or emergency you are talking about? Why we Pakistani people always think we are the only smart people on the planet. My brother just search bus way on Google and see how many of them have these funny 2 ft foot paths? I'm also Pakistani but i want my country to be build as per international standards not they way they use to build city like old Lahore where if some one dies their body can't be taken out as streets are too small to put the dead body on a small bed( i mean charpai). If you are spending money , spend it proper way.

Thanks Mr Malik. I think it will be unfair to compare Lahore BRT with my city Jaipur BRTS. Lahore is a metropolitan while Jaipur is a tier two city.

A fair comparison could be delhi BRT with lahore.

Also, yes jaipur brt is wheelchair accessible. I think a law passed few years ago which mandated all public offices and infrastructure to be wheelchair friendly.

PS. While looking up Delhi BRT i realized that it doesnt have a railing separating the BRT lanes with regular ones. Either they just have a separator lines painted on the road or couple of bricks high dividers built.

calm down, they dont extend all the way to shahdara, they are only at the bus stops, which is not a bad idea.

Even then its not as per standard , off course how many people gonna stand on this narrow patch. Bro i do like this project as you do, but the stuff which is wrong is wrong and believe me some contractor is making money out of this.

Friends, these are not footpaths. Its called hard landscape on bothsides of the road for just esthetic or beautification purposes.

These beautiful small coloured footpaths/hard landscapes can be used for placing small to large planter or flower pots.
