A modern bus stand with necessary facilities would be developed at the Rajiv Gandhi crossing, and facilities at the Sarvate bus stand would be ramped up.
At present, Atal Indore City Transport Services Limited ( AICTSL) and private buses are parked at the bus stand.
This was decided at a meeting of the District Road Safety and Traffic Committee held at the AICTSL office on Tuesday.
The issue of shifting the Tata Magic and Nagar Seva buses from the routes covered by the i-buses that will run along the BRT corridor was also discussed at the meeting.It was announced by the collector Aakash Tripathi that these vehicles would be shifted in phases.
At present the number of buses running on the corridor is few and they would not be able to cater to the entire needs of the public, but as the number of i-buses increase, the Tata Magic and Nagar Sevas would be phased out.All these vehicles would be given new and viable routes, and for this purpose 11 old and new routes have been identified.
It was also announced that stands of auto rickshaws and other public vehicles would be identified and clearly earmarked.
The collector also announced that the Sarvate bus stand would be repaired and special attention would be paid towards regular water supply and cleanliness.
He announced that an additional 10 persons would be deployed to keep the bus stand premises clean. He said that a new bus stand would be developed in the city and this would reduce the pressure on Sarvate bus stand.
Apart from the collector, additional collector Alok Singh, CEP IDA, Pankaj Singh, ASP Ramji Shrivastava, ASP (traffic) Anjana Tiwari, deputy collector D K Nagendra, RTO Sanjay Soni, additional commissioner IMC Manoj Pushpa were also present. Traffic consultant Jagatnarayan Joshi was also present at the meeting.
