RAWALPINDI: Chairman Metro Bus Project Monitoring and Implementation Committee, Hanif Abbasi, has claimed that the luxury bus project would complete by end of February, Samaa reported.
Abbasi says the mass transport project will bring a revolution in the public transport sector of Rawalpindi and Islamabad, facilitating over 200,000 commuters travelling by public transport daily.
Speaking to reporters here, the chairman of the project claimed that 90 per cent of the project work had been completed and that it would finish by end of this month.
“This project is going to be completed within 11 months that was the estimated time,” he said.
In a briefing last month, Abbasi said that 64 air-conditioned buses would initially ply on the Rawalpindi-Islamabad route.
He said the Metro Bus Authority would install elevators, escalator, security camera monitors and other equipment at the command and control centre and bus stations.
He said the Metro Bus Authority would not only run the bus service but also handle other issues, including security and providing ambulance service in case of an accident.
CCTV cameras would be installed on the elevated road and main route of the bus service and monitored from the command and control centre, he added. – Samaa/APP
