Peshawar’s BRT gets green signal from Asian Development Bank


In the recent past, there has been an immense cry over Local media and social media because of the long delay in completion of Peshawar’s Rapid Bus Transit (BRT). However, the financer of the project “Asia Development Bank” (ADB)  has shown a lot of satisfaction over the speed and quality of the work performed in the project.

While speaking to media ADB’s officials made such positive remarks about the project. ADB’s official also witnessed the test run of the project which was successfully completed. KPK’s Information Minister Shaukat Yousufzai and other relevant officials were also present at the occasion.

The officials were glad that the project is strictly according to international standards and it was completed within the normal duration.

He further added, “Projects of such nature ordinally complete in 24 to 30 months all over the world, while Peshawar Development Authority (PDA) completed the BRT project in record time 15 months,”.

They defended the long delay of the project by expressing that the engineers had to form changes in certain areas which was the actual reason for the delays.

“The architects involved in the projects were facing issues within the  design near the reach-1 (Gulbahar) and reach-2 (Tehkal) which forced them to change things at specific points keeping in mind the flow of the traffic inbound areas.”

To a question, Minister for Information said, “We had no plan to run the project in ahead of Sunehri Masjid (mosque), however, due to the protest and agitation of the traders’ unions force us to ask the PDA to run the elevated point opposite Saddar bazaar.”

Hopefully, the facility is available for the general public so that they can get maximum possible advantage from the project.
