Nitish inspects the sites of another bus terminal | Patna News


PATNA: Another modern bus terminal is likely to come for the convenience of commuters as Chief Minister Nitish Kumar on Wednesday inspected three identified sites in Bihta, Muradpur in Phulwarisharif and Kanhauli in Patna.
There is a need for another bus station to decongest the Patliputra bus station located in Mauza Pahadi on the Patna-Gaya road. The buses will be distributed geographically between the existing bus station and the one proposed.
During the inspection, the CM discussed the decongestion of city roads and the rationalization of interstate and intercity bus routes. Focusing on Patna’s future plan, officials felt that another bus terminal in Bihta would be more feasible as the alignment of the six-lane ring road will affect the location.
In addition, an elevated road is under construction in Bihta where the second airport is also offered. Bus operation from northwest Bihar, Rohtas, Kaimur, Buxar, Bhojpur, Ara, Chappra and adjacent Uttar Pradesh and a few city buses from there will be more feasible with a view to developing the great Patna. However, the CM will take the final appeal on this issue.
The land requirement for the second bus station will be finalized by the district administration and the Department of Town Planning and Housing. The area will be selected after considering different aspects to provide better transportation facilities for commuters. The State Transport Department will prepare the transport mobility plan with all the players in the new bus station.
According to sources, more than 3,000 buses run in Patna per day and more than 1,800 buses leave from Patliputra bus station.
