On this, BMC Chairman Kishan Suryavanshi ordered for a detailed study on the utility of a BRTS corridor as it is creating "more hindrance than smoothening traffic.
Notably, BRTS is a Bus Rapid Transit System, in which a corridor is constructed along the road for city buses only. No other vehicles are allowed to use that bus way.
