Govt reveals plans to build two new BRT corridors

Sisodia announced that a 29-km east-west elevated BRT corridor will be built from Anand Vihar Terminal to Peeragarhi and a 24-km north-south elevated BRT corridor will stretch from Wazirabad to the airport.

While the AAP government initiated the demolition of south Delhi’s BRT corridor built by the erstwhile Congress administration, Finance Minister Manish Sisodia Monday announced that the government will construct two elevated BRT corridors for east-west and north-south connectivity.

In his budget speech, Sisodia announced that a 29-km east-west elevated BRT corridor will be built from Anand Vihar Terminal to Peeragarhi and a 24-km north-south elevated BRT corridor will stretch from Wazirabad to the airport.

“… Four stretches of elevated corridors, one underground tunnel from NH 24 bypass to Lodhi Road and corridor improvement of road from Khajuri Khas to Bhopura border will be taken up in 2016-17,” said Sisodia.

CM Arvind Kejriwal said the government will appoint consultants to carry out a feasibility study and prepare a detailed project report. The proposed corridors, he said, will be built on a public-private-partnership model. Sisodia also announced plans to build a skywalk from the Qutub Minar Metro Station to the Qutub Minar monument.
