If you read this blog carefully - which BRT fans don't - you willsee that I have no issues with a well-executed public transportation project. The Bus Rapid Transit system is a disasterously executed project. In Bogota, the example quoted by the crackpot Dinesh Mohan and his cronies, road traffic has four lanes in each direction and instead of stopping traffic every 500 meters, there are overhead walkways. top defending bad execution, that is a problem in India, the BRT is a badly executed idea, and why on earth should I not be a NIMBY - are you impacted by the project? Well I am and while I'm not some crackpot who would like to censor criticism like Dinesh Mohan and Sunita Narain (the loony left is worse than the loony right and Greenies are the most dangerous people in the world) the BRT is an awful example - look down at Joseph Tito Marg if you're flying into Delhi on runway 28 (that is the middle runway now) during working hours (at night the sight is scary to see the number of cars backed up) and then defend the BRT - and it isn't Bus Rapid Transit anymore - it is Babu Rapid Transit - just look at the number of government Ambassadors taking the quick and easy route. BRT defenders have not calculated the cost of either fuel or time wasted waiting at innumerable red lights on the BRT. Want to chop India's fuel bill - chop the BRT.
And as for EchTee - The Mumbai music ban fiasco was wonderful. But I'll give them a while to sort things out, its only fair, no?
