250 sleek bus Q-shelters to come up near CWG venues

Aesthetic and sleek bus Q-shelters will soon dot the routes in and around Commonwealth Games venues with the Delhi Cabinet today approving construction of at least 250 such structures ahead of the mega sports event in October.

"DIMTS will take up construction of 250 modern bus Q-shelters on PPP basis on the same model as adopted in NDMC area and further take up construction of 800 more at the lowest rates received through open tenders," Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit told reporters after the Cabinet meeting here.

The total cost of construction is expected to be around Rs 96 crore, for which a request is being made to the Urban Development Ministry for sanctioning at least half the amount out of Delhi Development Fund.
