He also directed to complete all the bus stations as early as possible so that the project can start work. He also directed to remove debris from the already completed track of the Rapid Bus Transit on both sides to offer relief to the trading community and the pedestrians.

During the meeting, he was told about the pace of progress on bus stations, cycle track, parking plazas, Pir Zakori bridge, jersey barrier, feeder routes, the status of purchasing buses and the scheme for disposal of old buses on the route.
