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.
