PESHAWAR | Public Transport

Peshawar (Urdu: پشاور‎),(Pashto: پېښور‎) is the capital of the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province of Pakistan. Peshawar is the largest city of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa. Peshawar is a metropolitan city and the administrative centre and economic hub for the Federally Administered Tribal Areas of Pakistan. Peshawar is a rapidly growing city, with the district population at 2,982,816 in 1998 . The current population growth rate is 3.29% per year, a rate that is higher than the average of many other Pakistani cities.

About Bus Rapid Transit (BRT)

BRT is an innovative mass transit system that combines the efficiencies and quality of metros with the flexibility and relative low cost of buses, while offering significant environmental benefits. World-class BRT achieves comparable levels of speed, capacity, and passenger comfort and convenience as rail-based systems, but can be built at a fraction of the cost and construction time. BRT provides cities with a pragmatic and affordable solution to ensure that their transit systems keep pace with urban growth.

Compared to a regular bus, the journey on a BRT is much quicker, because BRTs enjoy bus-only lanes, and passengers pay at the station, rather than on the bus. And since the station floor is at the same level as the bus floor, BRT is easily accessible to individuals with limited mobility.

BRT also reduces greenhouse emissions and air pollution. By increasing bus speeds, encouraging motorists to switch to buses, and often using more fuel efficient buses, BRT is an important tool in battling climate change.

What was initially thought to have been one of Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa government’s flagship mega-projects, a high-speed train running to and from the city, is now struggling to materialise as a bus rapid transit (BRT).

The initial plan was to use the already existing tracks and run a light railway transit (LRT). However, it was soon discovered the pre-feasibility study was impractical as the railway track is broad-gauged and the alignment is off-track with a number of overhead bridges.

In search for a more pragmatic solution, Chief Minister Pervez Khattak held a meeting with Federal Railway Minister



Five pathways
Meanwhile, the Cities Development Initiative for Asia, which provides grants for such ventures, and is a trust fund under Asian Development Bank, has identified five corridors for the MTS. These are:

Corridor 1: Chamkani to Hayatabad

Corridor 2A: Chamkani to Karkhano via GT Road, Khyber Road and Jamrud Road

Corridor 2B: Chamkani to Karkhano via GT Road, Sunehri Masjid Road, Sir Syed Ahmed Road and Jamrud Road

Corridor 3: Warsak Road to Kohat Terminal via Saddar, AK Afridi Road and Kohat Road

Corridor 4: Charsadda Road to Bara Road Terminus near Ring Road via Saddar

Corridor 5: Inner City Circular Road and Ring Road

Is the BRT finally coming to Peshawar and just before the elections?


http://www.dawn.com/news/1248216/wor...m-from-jan-nex

PESHAWAR: The Khyber Pakhtunkhwa government has planned the start of work on the Bus Rapid Transit system in the provincial capital by Jan 2017 and its completion within a year.

It has also intended to put new buses on the city’s roads by November this year.

The details of these projects were shared in a recent meeting on the BRT project and new public transport system for Peshawar.

Official says project to be completed in a year

The meeting, which took place on Feb 26, was chaired by Chief Minister Pervez Khattak.

According to officials in the know, transport secretary Zubair Azhar Qureshi told participants that the Asian Development Bank had completed the pre-feasibility study of the project in April 2004 recommending the construction of five mass transit corridors in the provincial capital during the next 10 years.

The minutes of the meeting available with Dawn show under the pre-feasibility study, the Corridor 2 running from Chamkani to Karkhano Market via the GT Road and Jamrud Road is the priority corridor.

The estimated cost of the street-level BRT system is Rs11.615 billion and that of partially elevated BRT system Rs17.97 billion.

The cost also includes Rs4.75 billion for acquiring 75 buses for BRT fleet, setting up command and control centre, and installing ticketing and security systems and CCTV cameras.

The proposed alignment of the Corridor 2 shows option of passing it through Zakori Bridge on GT Road to Qila Balahisar, then elevated segment to Lady Reading Hospital (LRH), Khyber Bazaar and Dabgari and then overhead to Deans Plaza at start of the Peshawar Cantonment.

From Deans, the BRT will run through the pedestrianised Saddar Bazaar and will have another elevated segment from Qayyum Stadium to Tehkal and from there to Hayatabad will proceed on ground with elevated U-turns for other traffic for ground segments.


The meeting decided that PC-1 for the establishment of the project management unit should be placed before the Provincial Development Working Party and cleared by March 2016 and that the hiring of staff should be completed in three months.


“The estimated date for the project’s clearance is Dec 2016 otherwise the whole project will not completed until Dec 2017,” the minutes note.

They said under the realistic timeline, the project’s completion was likely to take place around Sept 2018, while the optimistic timeline put the date at Dec 31, 2017.

PESHAWAR: Special Assistant to Chief Minister for Transport Malik Shah Muhammad Khan Wazir has disclosed that Rs18 billion have been approved for Peshawar bus rapid transit and two other mega transportation projects in the upcoming Khyber Pakhtunkhwa proposed budget 2016-17.

In an interview with APP on Wednesday, Malik Shah Muhammad said the proposed bus project was a part of the Mass Transit System (MTS) in Peshawar starting from Chamkani Motorway Interchange to Hayatabad, and would be completed by December 2017 with financial assistance of the Asian Development Bank (ADB).

The ADB would provide the loan for these projects at one percent mark up, payable by 2030, he explained.

Five different corridors would be established under the proposed project to make the flow of the city traffic smooth, besides providing quality transport services to the residents of Peshawar. The project would ease the traffic load on intercity roads of the provincial capital.

In the first phase, Malik said 100 air-conditioned articulated buses would be brought for which pre-qualification tenders from interested international companies were already received.

The buses would arrive in Peshawar within six months, for which all modalities, including its fare routes and passenger stops were being finalised, he told APP.

About new projects proposed in the budget 2016-17, Malik said a state of the art model Peshawar Transport Complex and Peshawar Trucks Terminal were being proposed in the upcoming budget, besides other new projects that would revolutionise the transport sector.

Will Bus Rapid Transit sacrifice security for speed?

By Izhar Ullah

Published: September 5, 2016

“The BRT system can increase bus travel speed and it should be built along a corridor where commuters usually suffer delays.”

PESHAWAR: While the whole city eagerly awaits the execution of Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) system, security checkpoints established along the routes may pose problems in the flow of speedy public transport.

The problem was highlighted in a 150-page design document of the BRT, which was obtained by The Express Tribune.

The same documents stated the main objective of the BRT system was to overcome slow public transport vehicles which had proved a nuisance for commuters.

They expressed concern over security checkpoints which caused delays in Peshawar traffic. Currently, there are 10 checkpoints located in the city and some of them operate on a temporary basis.

The locations of checkpoints include Khyber Road, Gora Qabristan, Railway Road, Mall Road, Mall Road West, Fakhar-e-Alam Road, Mall Road East, Bara Road, Hayatabad, Karkhano and Peshawar Press Club.

“Since these checkpoints might be a problem for the BRT, there needs to be a measure to exclude [the project’s] buses from being stopped without posing a threat to security.”

However, there were no suggestions in the documents to address the issue despite the fact that the draft of the preliminary design, available with The Express Tribune, is considered the final version of the BRT to be executed after approval.

When Adviser to Chief Minister on Information Mushtaq Ghani was contacted by The Express Tribune, he said discussions were under way to sort out the issue of checkpoints delaying BRT buses.

When asked if institutions were taken on board in the design of the project, he said security would be ensured at all costs. He added security institutions had indeed been consulted over the execution of the project. He said one of the solutions could involve checking the buses at stations.

The corridor of the BRT system will be constructed on a proposed route from Chamkani to Karkhano Market through Khyber Bazaar. It will be at-grade through most of the project, while some areas will see elevated and underground corridors.

The total length of the corridor is 27 kilometres, with an at-grade section of 23 kilometres and an elevated portion of four kilometres. This may be extended to six kilometres with the construction of 27 BRT stations.

Construction work on the project was scheduled to begin in January 2017 and expected to be completed by the end of the same year.

To obtain the speed data of all six current modes of public transport, a survey was conducted of minibuses, wagons, rocket buses, vans, university wagons and rickshaws.

Survey data revealed that buses ply slower than 12km per hour on most parts of the trunk line in Peshawar. According to the documents, this snail’s pace was due to them running on slow lanes along GT Road to pick up passengers.

Another reason, the documents stated, were the delays caused by security checkpoints and traffic along Khyber and Saddar bazaars. Another factor was the excess of number of bus stops.

Furthermore, Ring Road, which offers a signal-free road, is able to get buses up to 20km per hour, while wagons travel at a speed as low as 9.4km per hour to 20km per hour.

The main objective of the BRT is to save time of the passengers, the documents read. “The BRT system can increase bus travel speed and it should be built along a corridor where commuters usually suffer delays.”

It is very comprehensive transportation system I must say. They have spent 1.5 billion rupees only on reasearch and design of this project.
The project includes: Bus Rapid System, Feeders, Street Lights, Parking, Footpaths and Drainage System.
But during this tenure they are only going to build one Route of this whole system.

This is Official route

CPEC Urban Transport: 4 Mass Transit Systems to be part of CPEC for Karachi Lahore Peshawar Quetta'The inclusion of the four schemes would increase the size of CPEC to nearly $54 billion.

ISLAMABAD: Pakistan and China are set to make four new infrastructure schemes worth $8 billion part of the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor next week but prospects for early inclusion of Punjab government’s Orange Line Metro project and the Karachi Circular Railway remain bleak. The inclusion of the four schemes would increase the size of CPEC to nearly $54 billion.

The upcoming sixth meeting of the Joint Cooperation Committee, the highest decision-making body of CPEC, would be different from past five meetings. This time, all chief ministers for the first time are expected to attend the JCC. Each of them would be seeking inclusion of mass transit projects in their provincial capitals in the CPEC framework, according to officials of the Planning Ministry

Punjab Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif would be keen to get the $1.6 billion Orange Line Metro project into CPEC to win Rs20 billion tax concessions. Punjab government would also seek inclusion of a $662 million steel mill project, which is planned to be set up at Chiniot, in the CPEC framework, according to Punjab’s planning minister.

Sindh Chief Minister Murad Ali Shah would want the much-delayed $2.6 billion Karachi Circular Railway to get a place in CPEC after the Japanese have apparently backed out. K-P Chief Minister Pervaiz Khattak has also forwarded the proposal of a Peshawar Metro bus project to be made part of CPEC while the Balochistan chief minister would like to have the Quetta Light Rail project in the CPEC.

However, none of these four mass transit projects would be officially made part of the CPEC, during the upcoming JCC meeting. The Joint Working Group on Infrastructure has not discussed these projects, which is a prerequisite, said sources in the planning ministry. The agenda of the JCC, which will meet in Beijing, has already been finalised, they said. However, the expectations are that the JCC would forward these projects to the respective working group for its technical and financial evaluation, the sources said.

Few days back, the Sindh CM requested the prime minister to make the Karachi Circular Railway a part of the CPEC framework, said Ahsan Iqbal on Thursday. A planning ministry official said that Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif has set up a committee under the joint leadership of Member Infrastructure of Planning Commission Malik Ahmad Khan and Additional Chief Secretary Sindh. The joint committee would work to resolve the issue of land between Pakistan Railways and the Sindh government for smooth execution of the Karachi Circular Railway

Pakistan Railways has demanded money in return for land, which the Sindh government is not eager to pay due to its impact on the cost of the project, said the officials. However, if Karachi Circular Railway eventually becomes part of the CPEC framework, the provincial government may get concessional financing from China like the one offered to Orange Line Metro project.
