Local Transport Within New Town
I have started discussions at several levels to find out how to address the issue of public transport within New Town. I asked WBSTC to think of a proposal for circular routes within the township last week. I told our newly appointed transport consultant from Delhi to make a study. I requested Tansport Secretary to allot some Green Buses for New Town. I wrote a formal proposal to the Renewable Energy Department to consider giving 25 or so battery powered carts as a pilot demonstration project. I explained to the PRT expert from UK that New Town-Salt Lake would form a good combination for a feasibility study.
