The transport department is planning to revive 14 other BRT projects after High Court direction on Ambedkar Nagar-Moolchand Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) corridor in New Delhi. A presentation by Delhi Integrated Multi-Modal Transit System (DIMTS) on the proposed corridors will be shown to a group of officials, including the Chief Minister on September 18. From September 15, a dedicated lane will be reserved for buses and emergency vehicles on the stretch of 5.8km Ambedkar Nagar-Moolchand Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) corridor. The presentation by DIMTS will be the first high-level meeting on the issue since the issue went to court. DIMTS, which has already formulated the detailed project report of six BRT corridors under it, is now working on the second phase of the project. On Chief Minister’s approval work on the next BRT, Karawal Nagar-Shastri Nagar-More Gate will start. According to the detailed project report made by DIMTS, the 15km Karawal Nagar-More Gate corridor will be a mix of different models. The width of the road is not reduced anywhere on the corridor. Private vehicles will continue to have the same amount of space they have at present. The transport department proposal for the second BRT corridor in Karawal Nagar-Shastri Park, estimates the cost at Rs 18-20 crore per km. Earlier the Delhi government had set aside a budget of Rs 450 crore for all the 14 BRT corridors
