New Delhi: Senior BJP Leader & Ex. Delhi MLA Vijay Jolly today in a press statement demanded for the immediate “Repair or Scrapping” of South Delhi Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) Corridor.
The 5.8 kilometer from Mehrauli – Badarpur Junction to J.B. Tito Marg in South Delhi and terminating before Moolchand hospital inter section on inner ring road was constructed at a cost of Rs. 150 crores. Started on 28th April 2008, it is now rendered useless within a span of 7 years recalled BJP leader Mr. Jolly.
This legacy of Congress led Sheila Dikshit govt. was built with the primary aim to decongest traffic in South Delhi. But instead it has proved to the biggest traffic bottleneck stated Mr. Jolly.
Dedicated lanes for pedestrians, cyclists, buses, 180 marshals reportedly deployed to guide bus passengers, help children & old people and instruct citizens to follow traffic rules on BRT are all but missing today alleged Ex. Delhi MLA Vijay Jolly.
The promised security guards at bus platforms on 24 hours basis are “nowhere” to be seen and using bus lanes by vehicular traffic is a common sight stated Mr. Jolly.
The central dividers segregating opposing traffic are severely damaged and need repairs. The overhead, road side, bilingual, regulatory signages are all missing. The foot over bridges (FOB) on the BRT are lying unused. The night mechanized cleaning by pressure washer machines has remained elusive.
BRT corridor has a track record of shocking fatal incidents in the past. 8 feet potholes found on 3rd August 2009, BSF – bus collision resulting in 4 deaths on 2nd Feb 2010, a young 13 years old boy drowning in a pit dug on BRT by DJB in March 2010 is now lying in a state of “Dilapidated Conditions” alleged BJP leader & Ex. Legislator Mr. Vijay Jolly.
It may be recalled that the Aam Aadmi Party in its election manifesto had promised to scrap the BRT. The BRT should be repaired or scrapped soon demanded BJP Leader Mr. Jolly.
