Namma Railu session may be postponed

112 users have liked.

We have already had a round table on Namma Railu, and few more meetings with several other people based in Bangalore. We are trying to get one or two local MPs and ministers for the Jan 10 session as we are at a stage where another meeting with local GoK babus, or SWR DM's team may not help much (there is a bit of a deadlock, follow recent meeting notes on Namma Railu project).

Due to our inability to get confirmations from a few key panelists, we may end up postpoing the Namma Railu session (effectively, the round table #2) for now.

Will updated the registration forms etc accordingly once the postponement is confirmed from CiSTUP side.

BPS is looking good

We are on track to get BMTC, Traffic Police, KSRTC, BBMP Engineering, a few experts on the panel for the session on Bus Priority. This one is looking good.

And so is the session on "Cycling as the intermodal connect".

Looking forward to the technical sessions now. comment guidelines
