Rajkot Municipal Corporation (RMC) has been completed 27 per cent work of phase one of the Bus Rapid Transit System (BRTS) known as blue corridor.
The local authority is hopeful to complete the entire phase one by August 2010.
Under Jawaharlal Nehru National Urban Renewal Mission (JNNURM), RMC started BRTS project in August 2008. The whole project has been divided into three parts called blue, red and green corridors. The blue corridor surrounding Rajkot, spans around 29 km.
The cost of phase one is estimated to be around Rs 110 crore. Currently, work is on at the 150 ft ring road which connects Gondal road and Jamnagar road national highway. Moreover, three flyovers will be constructed on this 10.70 km stretch. Work on the flyovers has been completed upto 18 per cent so far, RMC officials said. The whole of BRTS project in Rajkot covers an area of 67 km.
"We will complete phase one of blue corridor by August next year and all projects will be done by 2012. Due to monsoon work is going slow but overall speed is going well.
The other two corridors, red and green, will begin after 2010 and these two projects will be completed by 2010," said, Chirag Pandya, city engineer in-charge, JNNURM Cell.
Blue corridor's length covers around 10.70 km at Gondal road to Jamnagar road, while other phases will cover 9.16 km from Jamnagar road to Greenland cross road and 9.14 km road from Greenland cross road to Gondal road highway.
