The Housing Infrastructure Development Corporation (Hidco) has planned to come up with a bus terminus complex of international standard on a four or five acre land in New Town’s Action Area IID. On Friday, the authorities floated an expression of interest to engage an agency for planning the architectural design of the bus terminus complex.
“The proposal is in a nascent stage. We intend to engage an agency that will draw a design of the complex, which will operate international, intra-state, inter-state and inter-city bus routes along with a commercial complex that will have food courts and a hang out zone for commuters,” said an official.
At present, the New Town bus terminus is located off the main arterial road in Action Area I while another bus stand is situated near Sapoorji housing. According to the officials, the residents of New Town have been demanding for a terminus, from where buses on different routes will be available.
