As the state government has planned to launch a fleet of 100 low-floor buses, the Municipal Corporation of Gurgaon (MCG) has decided to build bus shelters in different part of the Millennium City.
The civic body on Monday passed a proposal in a meeting of the house, which was attended by mayor Vimal Yadav, senior deputy mayor Yashpal Batra, deputy mayor Parminder Kataria, MCG commissioner Sudhir Rajpal, joint commissioner Y S Gupta, and chief engineer BS Singroha among others. The Haryana government will launch 100 new low-floor buses for the Millennium City early next year.
"We would like this work to be done on priority basis and the tender in this regard will be floated very shortly," said the mayor, adding that the tender will be awarded to contractor on basis of design and quality of work.
The new shelters will be developed on the pattern of q-shelters in Delhi.
"We have deeply observed the design of bus Q-shelters in Delhi and want to set up on the same pattern here. We would make sure that benches, lights, reflectors, signs, shades to check sun and rain be designed properly," senior deputy mayor Yashpal Batra told the house.
The corporation also discussed several other development proposals brought by the members.
"The colonies, which are unapproved, be given all basic facilities like sewage, roads, sanitation, street lights and water etc. The house agreed on my proposal and in next session I hope this may be passed," said councillor Rishi Raj Rana.
