Delhi Looks at Major BRT Expansion

Officials in Delhi are proposing a major expansion of the city's new bus rapid transit system, suggesting an additional 345 kilometers.

The plans include 18 new BRT corridors.

"The RITES report, titled 'Transport Demand Forecast Study on Development of Public Transport Network', was submitted to the government some time back but has been put up for the cabinet's approval only recently. "Once the government accepts the report, we will take the next step of commissioning feasibility studies for these corridors and that is when the alignments will be decided. Right now, we are concentrating on the Shastri Park-Karawal Nagar stretch because the report has reinforced the need for this corridor," said a transport department source.

Interestingly, the first BRT corridor which got buried in tremendous public opposition is yet to run its full stretch between Ambedkar Nagar and Delhi Gate."
