BRTS buses to ply in Indore

Wednesday, June 13 2007 14:06 (IST) RSS

Source

Indore, June 13 (UNI) An 88 km-long Bus Rapid Transit System (BRTS) -- a system which exists in 30 cities of the world -- would be built here, under the Jawaharlal Nehru Urban Renewal Mission scheme.

As per official information, during the first phase, BRTS from Niranjanpur square and Rajiv Gandhi statue would be completed in next one-and-half years.

Apart from facilitating transport, this would increase the efficiency of roads by 30 per cent and help in reducing pollution.

Besides Indore, work under the BRTS system is underway in seven other cities. In Indore, a riverside corridor scheme is being prepared.

Under the BRTS system, a separate lane would be built in the middle for city buses. Besides, separate lanes would be built for pedestrians, cycles, motorcycles and other vehicles.

Bus stops and entrance door of BRTS buses would be at the same height. Special attention would be laid on infrastructure of roads, design of vehicles and ITS.

Services like drinking water, drainage, sewage and electricity would be underground.

A green lane would be made on the corridor and trees would be planted.

The BRTs buses would start plying within 1.5-2 years.

UNI XC-PS SR RS1324 the BRTS buses would start plying within 1.5-2 years

What indore needs is more roads, flyovers and traffic management system. it may be the worst II tier city in the nation in terms of the infra. It is very painful to go from one place to another. hope this BRTS changes things.

This map is about Indore City Bus, it has nothing to do with BRTS.



Thats MG Road.
BTW where did you live in Indore?
One year in Saket near Old Palasia, and one in Sukhliya near Sayaji hotel( My weekend Adda).

Indore's first multiplex opened when I was there.

http://daily.bhaskar.com/article/MP...rts-route-to-offer-dream-journey-2289785.html

ndore: An almost dream journey is in the offing. Or, so it would appear, if you read its facilities. No red signals to stop your bus, no conductor to pester you for ticket and advanced information about you destination in the bus itself.

These services will soon be available in the buses set to ply on the BRTS corridor from Niranjanpur square in the north to the Rajiv Gandhi square in the south.

High tech facilities will be provided in the buses through global environment facility fund.

The buses will ply on the same BRTS corridor. The facilities will be developed with an investment of Rs 47 crores.

A total 50 specially equipped and air-conditioned buses will ply on this corridor apart from 125 low- floor buses.

In the first phase, the plan is being implemented on a stretch of 11.7 km on the AB Road from Nrianjanpur square to the Rajiv Gandhi. A total 22 bus stations will be there on the stretch.

These buses as well as the junctions will have high tech facilities including advanced signal system with transit signal priority, automated fare collection system, network surveillance and CCTV cameras, traveler information through vehicle management system and signs and traffic management center for centralized operations control.

Under the transit signal facility, the buses will be given priority. Traffic will be managed in such a way that as soon as the bus comes in proximity of 100 meters from the signal it will automatically turn green.

Under the automated fare collection system, electromagnetic tickets will be issued and check gates will open automatically as soon as the commuter brings the ticket closer.

Pre paid smart cards will also be issued. And there will be separate queues for the passengers who are having these smart cards. These zones will be known as paid zone and non- paid zone.

Using close circuit surveillance cameras, a close eye on the entire traffic will be kept to ensure smooth commutation.

Apart form this through the vehicle management system LCD displays will be used to display information which is useful for the passengers such as next bus, bus stop, duration in which the bus will arrive etc. Powered with global positioning system and global information system, a centralized operations control will be developed.

Sub-divisional magistrate Gautam Singh said, "With its implementation this will provide high-tech facilities to the commuters. The works for installation of these devices is interconnected with the other works like road construction and bus purchase and will go on simultaneously".

On July 27, the sites for junctions would be identified, he added.

http://daily.bhaskar.com/article/MP-IND-decks-cleared-for-rs-49-cr-to-brts-corridor-2286586.html

Indore: Decks have been cleared for additional Rs 49 crore funding to the ongoing BRTS corridor project in the city.

The state government has sanctioned its share for the project ( Rs 2.75 crore) in a meeting in Bhopal chaired by Chief Secretary Avni Vaish on Thursday.

In the Rs 49 crore, the state government's share is Rs2.75 crores. Half of the fund will be borne by the Cente under the JNNURM, around Rs 9.5 crore will come from World Bank and rest of the amount will be provided by the union ministry of urban development.

Talking to DNA, SDM Gautam Singh, who is in charge of city bus service and was present in the meeting at Bhopal, said, "This is externally aided project which is funded under the Global Environment Facility (GEF). Under the project, an agreement with the state government was made where the government was to provide Rs2.75 crore as its share now the state administration has approved this amount".

As this is an externally- aided project any sort of funding in these projects require an approval of state level committee headed by the chief secretary.

The decision has made the officials in the Indore Municipal Corporation (IMC) and Indore Development Authority (IDA) heave a sigh of relief, as they were quite concerned about the BRTS corridor project ever since Chief Minister Shivraj SIngh Chouhan expressed displeasure over its slow pace during his Indore visit last week.

The IDA chief executive officer Chandra Mouli Shukla assured the Chief Minister that the work would be completed by October this year. Since the Chouhan's visit, the BRTS corridor work has gained a new impetus.

However, despite hectic pace, meeting the October ,2011 deadline looks unlikely. Official sources said that impediments such as places of worship , most importantly the Khajrana mosque ,might further delay the project beyond October.

The dispute is in the court as the two agencies have moved to get the stay on the mosque by the Waqf Board vacated.

Indore: With the work of the bus rapid transit system (BRTS) corridor lagging way behind schedule, the Indore Development Authority (IDA) has slapped a notice on Niraj-Pratibha Constructions (NPC), the firm working on the project, it emerged on Tuesday.

According to the IDA, NPC has been asked why the work of the BRTS is moving ahead with a snail's pace.

Speaking to Dainik Bhaskar, Ashutosh Mudgal, Superintendent Engineer, confirmed that the IDA had sent a notice to NPC and sought a detailed report on the project.

NPC has, however, said they have not received a notice from the IDA.

Work on the BRTS corridor has been going on for the last one-and-a-half year. And according to NPC, the lack of funds is the sole reason for the stalling of various ventures.

Earlier in December, NPC issued a similar statement about the lack of funds, saying that the project management consultant’s slow processing of bills delays the payment it receives from the IDA.

Even as the city eagerly awaits the BRTS corridor the unfinished work has become a nuisance for everyday traffic.
