Launched by Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan in Peshawar city of Pakistan’s Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province in August last year, the Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) system does not have the basic facilities of a functioning washroom for its passengers.
As per media reports, piles of rubbish have piled up and there is no water or sanitation facility. It is also reported that drug addicts gather near the place after sunset.
Three commercial plazas were also to be built to increase the project’s revenue, but they are not yet complete. Construction work was halted due to “problems with the contractors” and will be resumed in the next 20 to 25 days, said Director-General, Peshawar Development Authority.
“Work on the bathrooms and commercial plazas will be completed soon,” Director-General said.
