  • PLANNING more important than PLANInitial cost estimate = INR 98.45 Cr. (Plan)Included cost of civil works of corridor onlyCost EXTRAs not planned forLand acquisitionUtility laying / shiftingRelocation of religious structuresStationsBusesITS (AVLS + AFCS + Signalling)EXTRA Costs amounting to INR 300 Cr.

  • Lack of Strategic PartnershipsInitially Delhi BRT design model followed for IndoreHowever, Delhi BRT turned unsuccessfulAhmedabad BRT introduced proved huge successDecision to change Indore BRT design to Ahmedabad BRT design modelCorridor construction was underwayDesign change involved re-configuring of utility ductsFurther additions to cost and timelinesPartnerships with BRT experts at the outset would have avoided such time and money losses

  • Technical Expertise Limited capacity at AICTSL Adequate technical expertise not available with government to provide assistance / guidance to AICTSLExternal consultation came with a price-tag

  • Project PublicityLot of negative publicity received from press and mediaBRTS blamed for any and every traffic incident along BRT corridor by media and expertsNational-level committees throw negative light on Indore projectNo consultation with AICTSL / IMCLimited awareness among people and media presents great challenges for BRTS

  • Partnership Partnership with EMBARQ India bridged the knowledge gap for the BRT project

  • BRTs Impact on Urbanisation in IndoreNew Malls, Hotels, Hospitals, Corporate Offices etc. have developed since project inceptionPremium on FAR in commercial buildings presents significant funding generation
