Bhopal Municipality has decided to upgrade the city’s Bus Rapid Transit System (BRTS) corridor after several complaints about its mismanagement surfaced in the media last week.

The company has set a target of nine months to complete the work.

The road from Habibganj to MP Nagar and Roshanpura Square to Kamala Park will be developed in a new form, for which management is preparing a Detailed Project Report (DPR).

Maintenance and upgrading of the 24 kilometer BRTS road from Misrod to Bairagarh is pending, for which BMC launched a tender worth Rs 26.34 crore on Saturday evening.

The BRTS corridor was constructed at a cost of Rs 329 crore and at least Rs 25 crore is spent annually on its maintenance.

The Ganesh Temple Corridor at MP Nagar will be upgraded and reworked as the Metro and Flyover construction completes the BRTS Corridor in the area.
