When the scheme to build bus-shelters of 'International Standards' was first floated a few years ago, many welcomed it as the standard of shelters in the city was pathetic, similar to cattle sheds.
Now that the scheme is working 'excellently', we have so many of these bus shelters all over, that the 'overwhelming' success of the scheme is resulting in multiple shelters for the same stop.
The picture below shows two new bus-shelters being finished at Bishop Cotton Boys School stop on Residency road, in addition to two others that are already there. These occupy the whole width of what remains of the sidewalk, & multiple ones mean that pedestrians & commuters are forced to step down on to the road.
It is obvious that the corporation is 'benefiting' greatly by building more of these to 'create international facilities' for the travelling public.
This picture shows a bus lane being 'enforced' on Residency road by policemen since cars /autos /tempos /2-wheelers, etc. etc. were routinely occupying the stretch 'temporarily', since there was 'no bus when they came there'. The cop I spoke to stated that paint marking of bus lanes at bus stops had been a failure, & they had to resort to these more forceful methods.
