Currently the corridor of the Green Line Bus Rapid Transit System has completed with state-of-the-art installations – monitoring cameras, surveillance and control mechanism, well-spaced bus stations. According to the original scope, the project was to end at Gurumandir. However with other BRT Lines passing through M.A.Jinnah, a Common Corridor at Numaish has been included in Green Line project as its extended scope.

The more recently-announced Karachi Package is a comprehensive set of major projects and relatively smaller schemes, entrusted to KIDCL for execution. A.A. Associates Consortium have been hired as project consultants. Consultants have submitted the Technical Bid Evaluation Reports on bids submitted by those construction firms whose proposals have been shortlisted as per Public Procurement Regulatory Authority Rules, 2004. After the Board’s approval, work will be awarded to the successful firms, as per promised timelines.

Green Line Bus Rapid Transit System

Significant progress have been achieved on construction of Green Line BRTS corridor. The original scope of the project, allocated into 16 contract packages, is nearing completion as per committed timeline in the start of the CFY.

CHALLENGES

There has been individual project-based approach in other BRT Lines and therefore initially there was no focal person / forum that could ensure coordination regarding complementary works with multiple government department / agencies such as Transport Department Water Board, Karachi Metropolitan Corporation, KDA Traffic Engineering Bureau, District Municipal Councils causing hindrance to the project.

RECOMMENDATIONS

On the forum of the Board, the Chief Executive Officer recommended that a Master Consultant shall be hired who shall devise Operational Framework and coordinate with Project Consultants of all BRT Lines to ensure integration of BRT Lines as envisaged under Karachi Master Plan.
