Third lane proposed in BRT without cutting trees

The transport department is planning to create a third lane in the second stretch of the first BRT corridor from Moolchand to Delhi Gate without cutting trees. Also, the IIT-Delhi has been assigned the job to develop the design. This was discussed in a meeting held among all the stakeholders of the BRT, including RITES and Delhi integrated multi-modal transport system. "We have given clear instructions as to develop the stretch in such a way that an extra lane for the cars is provided wherever possible without harming the trees," transport commissioner, R.K. Verma said.
