Revision of private bus routes planned

KOCHI: The City Traffic Police are making another attempt at revising the routes of private service buses in the city, as well as mofussil services.

The police had to backtrack from a recent move to find an alternative route for buses to take the load off a segment of M.G. Road.

This time, however, the police officials made sure that the revisions go down well with the bus operators.

The new revisions were made on the basis of suggestions made at a meeting in which top traffic police officials and representatives of unions of bus owners, operators and employees participated. The meeting came up with seven suggestions on revising the routes for private buses. According to the new plan, buses coming to the city from Elamakkara can enter the city without reaching Kaloor by taking Sastha Road and Manappattiparambu.
