Vehicular movement on the controversial Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) corridor between Ambedkar Nagar and Moolchand in South Delhi will be reverted back to its original mode from midnight on Wednesday.
This would mean that bus lanes on the 5.8 km-long corridor, which were opened for mixed use, would only be allowed for movement of buses, fire tenders and ambulances and not other vehicles.
Private cars, two-wheelers and other vehicles were allowed to ply on the bus lanes since May 14 as part of a study conducted Central Road Research Institute (CRRI). The CRRI was tasked by the Delhi High Court to study traffic pattern on the stretch.
The stretch from Ambedkar Nagar to Moolchand will revert to its original mode from midnight tonight, said a senior official of Delhi Integrated Multi Modal Transit System Ltd, which maintains the corridor.
The official said a few changes have been made in the traffic movement pattern at Chirag Delhi and Siri Fort to enable smooth flow of traffic.
As per CRRI, movement of traffic improved when other vehicles were allowed to ply on the bus lanes.
