Private buses choke central area

Integrated bus stand remains a distant dream for people of Tiruchi

Haphazard parking of omni buses in the absence of designated terminus is causing chaos in vehicular movement, particularly on Sundays and holidays, around the Central Bus Stand here.

Regulation of omni buses has become nearly impossible for the authorities because of space constraint in the bus stand area. Efforts to identify a site for omni buses have not borne fruit.

A move by the traffic regulation authorities to utilise a piece of land close to the bus stand was abandoned as it belongs to the Health Department. The land, official sources said, has been kept for expansion of the Government Medical College.

Omni bus operators say the onus is on the district administration to prevail upon the government departments to spare land temporarily until the integrated bus stand is built.

“We do know that the indiscriminate parking of omni buses is causing bottleneck in the Central Bus Stand area. But the only option we are left with is to utilise VOC Road and the Thevar statue area since we need to inevitably operate close to the bus stand for passenger patronage,” president of Tiruchi District Omni Buses Operators' Association Balu said.

There has been a phenomenal rise in the number of buses operated out of the Central Bus Stand by Tamil Nadu State Transport Corporation. Moreover, vehicles coming from Bodi, Theni, Dindigul, and Cumbum need to cross the location. Not less than 150 buses from these places pass through the bus stand area and most of them wait for a while before proceeding.

The police authorities have understandably approached the TNSTC to pare down the extent of its special services from the Central Bus Stand, on holidays and during festivals.

Transport Minister Vellamandi N. Natarajan had reportedly assured omni bus operators, when they submitted a petition recently explaining the prevailing situation in the bus stand area, that the government was keen on finalising the location for an integrated bus stand for Tiruchi, with provision to accommodate the private buses at the earliest.

TN Govt has plans to construct a Rs 150 Crore IBT at Trichy--Asks Funds from CG

Quote:
Tamil Nadu has requested Centre to sanction Rs 736.64 crore for constructing new bus stands and improvement of existing ones in urban local bodies in Tamil Nadu.
.

Tamil Nadu municipal administration minister S P Velumani submitted a memorandum in this regard to Union road transport minister Nitin Gadkari on Tuesday. In his memorandum, it was mentioned that out of the 124 municipalities, bus stands were available only in 112 municipalities and land constraint has been the main reason for non-availability.

An official press release said Tamil Nadu had taken special efforts by allotting Rs 141 crore under various schemes to bridge the gap and in view of the growing demand, the State had requested Centre to consider their proposal to construct 14 new bus stands.

The proposal included two special bus stands with 150 bays at Coimbatore and Tiruchy at a cost of Rs 352 crores, Class ‘A’ bus stands in Madurai, Vellore, Erode and 11 other municipalities apart from one Class ‘B’ bus stand at Tirunelveli.
