Route to be extended

The Punjab government is mulling over a plan to extend the route of Metro Bus Service Project from Mareer Chowk to Kutcheri Chowk via Rashid Minhas Road to facilitate people travelling on this route.

Talking to ‘The News,’ Metro Bus Service Project Implementation Committee Chairman Muhammad Hanif Abbasi said that under the present components of the project, the extension of Metro Bus route from Mareer Chowk to Kutcheri Chowk is under consideration. However, completion of this project and operation of Metro Buses, as part of extension of Metro Bus Service routes from Mareer Chowk to Kutcheri Chowk, would be implemented in next phase of the project for the convenience of public.

However, when asked Commissioner Rawalpindi, Zahid Saeed did not agree to this point about building a new elevated route from Mareer Chowk to Kutcheri Chowk.

He however, revealed that two flyovers would be constructed one at Kutchery Chowk Interchange and the other one at Ammar Chowk.

The flyover at Interchange of Kutcheri Chowk would be enforced by NHA while that of Ammar Chowk would be executed by Rawalpindi Development Authority.

“Work on both these projects would begin next year. Informal work on these projects like survey and preparation of feasibility study has been initiated by the concerned departments including NHA and RDA. After feasibility study, estimates would be prepared for allocation of funds for this purpose,” he added. Replying to yet another question related to pathetic and deteriorating condition of the entire city because of ongoing work on Metro Bus Service Project, Zahid Saeed, agreed that the look has been affected. However, he said that Wasa tankers sprinkle water for overcoming dust in the air. This work is carried out twice a day in all sections where work is under way, he claimed.

An accident of timing: Google has updated its satellite imagery of Isloo-Pindi, and it shows the BRT system under construction! Thanks to forumer ahmar for uploading these photos...

The ongoing protests in Islamabad have disrupted construction of the BRT system (and pretty much everything else in Isloo-Pindi), but even so the system will be completed with what I'd call amazing speed.
