Mysore/Mysuru: Chamaraja MLA L. Nagendra performed guddali puja for the construction of the Hi-Tech Bus Stand at Kumbarakoppal’s first bus stand (MCC Ward No. 5) in city this morning.

The hi-tech bus stand is being constructed at a cost of Rs. 35 lakh from the Mysuru City Corporation’s (MCC) SFC Fund.

MCC Development Officer Manu Gowda, speaking to Star of Mysore, said that the new bus stand will come up on a 40 ft. x 60 ft. plot and the works have been allotted to the Public Works Department (PWD) which in turn has tendered the works to Contractor Bhyrappa. This is the first ever hi-tech bus stand for city buses, he added.

Pointing out that the new bus stand will have two floors (ground and first floor), Manu Gowda said that the ground floor will have two commercial shops, KSRTC Office, bus bays and hi-tech toilets for men and women. The first floor will not be utilised at the moment and it will be decided later whether to give it on rent, he added. The construction is expected to be completed in 3-4 months.

MCC Ward 5 Corporator Usha Kumar, MCC Zone-5 Assistant Commissioner Krishna, Assistant Engineer Abhilash, KSRTC (City Division) Deputy Transport Officer Marigowda, PWD Assistant Engineer Varun Kumar and others were present.

    In a 40feet x 60feet, hi tech bust stand, one wonders what will be the size of bus chasis which can manover in the stand. The present bus chasis cannot take a round turn in this area. Are we in fools paradise???

    40 feet x 60 feet and at Rs. 35 lakhs! Probably a Light House like structure in the middle of the site to look at the public who have been taken for a ride. Stop such waste of money and use the funds for a genuine cause.
