KARACHI: Sindh government is revising the BRT Yellow Line project to expand its outreach to more areas so that a larger number of commuters could benefit from the modern and better transport facilities.

This decision was shared by Sindh Minister of Transport and Mass Transit Sharjeel Inam Memon to World Bank Transport Specialist Bilal Paracha, who called on him on Friday.

Two feeder services of BRT Yellow Line- from FTC to Baloch Colony and FTC to Metropole- were incorporated in the new plan so that more citizens of Karachi could be able to utilise the modern public transport, the minister said, adding that two multistorey bus depots were proposed in the new plan instead of six depots due to non-availability of required land on the BRT route.

Sharjeel Memon said that the Sindh government was determined to start work on the BRT Yellow Line project at the earliest and instructions were issued for starting the process for procurement of buses for the project.

The concerned department was coordinating with project consultants on Plan One and Plan Two to revise PC-I of the project that would be presented for further consultation in the upcoming meeting with the World Bank, he informed.

Sharjeel said that the Sindh government, focusing on providing a modern public transport system to Karachi had started the People’s Bus Service, Orange line, and Electric Bus Service, while work on BRT Red Line was in full swing.

With the completion of BRT’s Red Line and Yellow Line, he hoped modern transport facilities would be available to a large population of the metropolis.
