i dont think buses can run on the track by 25th... still a lot of work left and they should take proper time, they have already done great job, i think a 2 weeks delay will not harm.

I went to Kasur last day for some project. They were carpeting metro bus lane on some places near Yohanabad. Bus stand at Gajjumata is not even complete. One can see just steel structure. Sorry guys I had not camera at that time so cant provide pics.

They might start Metro bus service within a month but completion of project (footpaths, side landscape/beautification will take atleast 3 more moths)

Punjab Metrobus Authority (PMA) launched its website.

@Malik Architect ... Can you mark the location of bus depot at Gajju matta on google earth/maps?

I hope what ever you said is true. But my brother again, when we see water truck parked on bus way just to water the plants for 2 times in a day. Would we really like that?. Wouldn't that effect and pose another safety hazard for the fast buses running both lanes on flyover. Would that not slow down the speed of bus?. Secondly what is the point to increase our expenses just in the name of beautification. This will slow down everything. May be, one day if they stop sending water truck for some reason then this will be full of dust and dirty shopping bags. Would be hard to clean for automatic cleaning machines as well.

These footpaths are an additional barrier to protect the main barrier. Any little negligence by the driver if wheels were touch the footpaths the driver will be alert before bus strike to main barriers.
Also these footpaths are use for service crew, for cleaning, any maintenance electricity, and replacement of lamps etc.

International standard :require 30 to 60 days curing time before a construction project can start using it.

Dear friends today I went to kasur for some project. While driving I caught few pictures which clearly show that lot of work is still left.

Om192, sorry even today I couldnot get picture of bus depot. but want to share something.

The bus service in not going to stop or take turn back from Gajjumata, but is turning about 1 mile before, even before Hudyara Drain. They have made big round about for turning buses similar to one in Shahdara.

Bus depot. is not in Gajjumata but opposite to Yohanabad.
