Bangalore, Nov 23, Deccan Herald News Service :

A Traffic Management Centre being set up at the cost of Rs 90 crores will be inaugurated at Yeshwanthpur next July, Minister for Transport R Ashok said.

Speaking at the inauguration of the newly constructed bus stand at Rajmahal 2nd Stage, Chikkamaranahalli here on Monday, Ashok added that the work on establishing the Centre, aimed at bringing city's traffic under control, was nearing completion.

The centre will accommodate as many as 60 buses and 400 car at a time. Another centre on similar lines would be set up at Hebbal, he informed. "That centre, to be constructed on eight acres of land, will accommodate 2,000 cars," he said.

He said that more than 1000 BMTC buses in the city are being parked on roads because of lack of adequate space. Hence, for easing congestion, five new units would be established at Kottanur, Kannalli near Magadi Road, Siddapur,Chikkanagamangala and Bidadi, he announced. For allaying people's complaints about the attitude of BMTC bus drivers and conductors, Ashok said that a Drivers's Training Centre would be established at the cost of Rs 12.25 for imparting training to the drivers and helping them improve their performance.
