Adding clarity on above news:
The news headline and content is about the "Vellalore Integrated Bus Terminal".
The picture and its caption is of Vellalore bus stand (for Vellalore panchayat) on Podhanur - Vellalore road which is in last stage of construction and will be inaugurated soon (Location)

For Salem and Madurai,
Bus Port Project works have been started

For Coimbatore
Only integrated bus stand and No bus port

Only Tamilnadu Government is doing like this and giving least importance to a larger industrial city like Coimbatore 🙁🙁

Not sure if it is a reason to feel bad here. Earlier the entire bus port was looking like a paper announcement and NHIDCL was either delaying it or rejecting the proposed sites etc. State Govt took it up then and accorded full funding for the same and has initiated the work.
Vellalore bus stand has been modelled on similar lines with CMBT in design.
Unfortunately the project designs be it airport or flyover or bus stand - cbe gets a raw deal, Cant help much

Whatever can be in the model. But our guys will definitely ruin in the execution part. so don't worry about the graphic looks

End of the day, it is not airplane which lands there and our buses ain't top class either. so design of bus stand doesn't matter. Convenience to reach bus stand for traveling to required destination and facilities matter. These are just fancy words. Let us wait and watch how the govt maintains the smart City project's along lakes in cbe. It looks really great, we have to see that in 2 years down the line.

Exactly it looks great in design but the components/design elements warrant high maintenance. We are talking about our local bodies here which doesnt even maintain a 500 sq.ft park properly. So we need to see how it will be maintained at the end of the day. Bus stands are high maintenance places with 1000s of foot falls daily and on an average we Indians suck at respecting any public property

Why can't they think of building a bus port in Gandhipuram apart from vellalore IBT, by integrating the city bus and Mofussil bus stand of GPM? As buses from sathy, bannari, mettupalayam, ooty, gudalur, etc., cannot be operated from vellalore IBT. Even Tirupur buses will be from GPM as the news articles states.

Don't think it would be a better idea. Almost all investments at gandhipuram to control traffic had failed including bridges. Should do something before things get out of control like Bangalore or Chennai. So can't expect any new transport system at gandhipuram anymore.

Coimbatore: In the preliminary report for metro train service in Coimbatore, it has been decided to add a route to the Vellalore bus stand, officials said.
TN Chief Minister announced that in view of the increasing traffic congestion in Coimbatore, action will be taken to run a metro train service here.
Following this, the Chennai Metro Train administration conducted a preliminary study on the possible routes in Coimbatore. The report is currently being prepared. This report is to be submitted to the Government of Tamil Nadu soon.
According to an official with the district administration, the metro train is planned on 5 routes in Coimbatore for a total distance of 136 km. The 5 routes would cover Avinashi Road, Mettupalayam Road, Thondamuthur Road, Trichy Road and Sakthi Road.
In this context, a route to the Vellalore Integrated Bus Stand is also being explored. Once the Chennai Metro Train administration submits this report to the Tamil Nadu government, the next step will be taken, the official added.
