No firm news recently on this

As we can see, the design of new flyovers on ORR have provision for ORR (assuming a center lanes for Buses design). But new firm news recently (in mainstream newspapers) that I can recall. Manjula ma'am had mentioned that the projects is on. But as far BRTS in Karnataka is concerned, seems like the focus right now is Hubli-Dharwad, and most likely Mysore next.

Last I heard about the Hebbal Silkboard BRTS project, top two issues being "discussed" were 1) the bottleneck at K R Puram area, and 2) integration with Big-10 services. 

On #1. I don't think that two dedicated lanes for Buses will be possible near K R Puram station on ORR, doesn't seem like there is enough width available there. No news on what is being planned to work over this congested stretch - no dedicated lanes there!?

On #2, There would be at 7 Big10 routes crossing this BRTS (Hosure Road, Sarjapur Road, Varthur Road, Old Madras Road, Hennur Road, Tannery Road, Bellary Road). Provision for easy interchange at all these points would be a requirement. Designing these interchanges with limited availability of land (think of Marathahalli for example, where is the space for building this interchange?) could be another reason for delay. comment guidelines
