Bhopal: India`s longest Bus Rapid Transit
System (BRTS) corridor being constructed in Bhopal would be
completed by February 2011, Madhya Pradesh Urban Development
and Administration Minister, Babulal Gaur said here today.


The total length of the BRTS corridor in Bhopal will be
24 kms. The corridor from Bairagarh to Misrod will be
constructed at an estimated cost of Rs 184 crore.

The BRTS corridor`s consultant agency`s (BCEOM) Testing
Laboratory Specialist, N B Murthy told Gaur that the
under-construction corridor at Bhopal is the longest (24 km
length) while a similar corridor in Gujarat`s Gandhi Nagar is
seven km long.


A total of 14 BRTS corridors are being constructed
nationwide.


After inspecting the ongoing construction work of the
corridor, Gaur said though BRTS project would be completed in
February 2011, limited number of specially designed low-floor
buses would start plying from May onwards.

A total of 48 ultra-modern stoppages would be constructed
on the corridor which will be 30 meter wide having six lanes
(three each on both sides) road.


While a lane each in the middle of the corridor on both
sides will be reserved for BRTS buses, remaining two will be
available for four-wheelers and two-wheelers.


The other speciality of this corridor is that in other
cities they are being constructed outside the cities while in
Bhopal it is passing through the dense areas of the city and
is totally safe, Murthy added.
