Why is the BRTS Corridor being removed?

The Bhopal Municipal Corporation (BMC) has started the initiative of BRTS corridor removal after Bhopal Smart City Development Corporation Limited (BSCDCL) denied the procurement for the maintenance of the Integrated Traffic Management System (ITMS) worth Rs 2.5 crore.

Hence, the BRTS is set to be dismantled within 180 days. 1 (Halalpur to Sehore Naka) out of 4 corridors has already been removed, while BMC started to remove the other one (Roshanpura to Kamla Park) on Friday.

The corridor was divided into four sections: 

Halalpur to Sehore Naka (3.81 km) , 

Roshanpura to Kamla Park (1.42 km) , 

Misrod to AMPRI (6.40 km), and 

Collectorate to Lalghati (1.73 km).

All about BRTS Corridor

In 2011, the Bhopal BRTS project was sanctioned by the state government. In September 2013, after two years, the corridor was finished being laid out on the city streets. A 24-kilometer stretch between Misrod and Sant Hirdaram Nagar Bairagarh was built. It took an expenditure of Rs 360 crore to be completed.
