Only i-buses will be allowed to ply on the 11.5-km long BRT corridor in Indore from Sunday. Penal action will be taken if any vehicle including cars enter the corridor.

A decision to extend the BRTS corridor from Rajiv Gandhi statue to Rau will be taken shortly. Four to five bus shelters along the extended route will be set up on PPP model. Cement railings may be constructed along the BRT corridor.

This decision was taken at a meeting presided over by district collector Akash Tripathi on Saturday. The decision comes nearly one year and five months after a bench of the high court in Indore allowed four wheelers to ply inside the corridor.

With district administration having taken a decision to ban plying of other vehicles on the BRT corridor, timing of traffic signals will also have to be changed, an official release stated on Saturday.
