The provincial government has asked the Space and Upper Atmosphere Research Commission (SUPARCO) to monitor the Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) from space through satellites.
Apart from the overall monitoring of its stations and the project, the movement of BRT buses and status of routes will be monitored from space.
A report has been prepared in coordination with the Asian Development Bank (ADB) and the Peshawar Development Authority (PDA) that reveals that the national space commission has been asked to utilize satellites for the said purpose.
PDA, ADB, and SUPARCO have established 32 points to this effect. Moreover, the PDA wrote in the report that they have started taking steps to award custody of the shops to their owners in the BRT underpass at Hashtnagri and Firdous.
The PDA spokesperson expressed hope that business activities will resume in the two underpasses over the next few weeks. “We cannot tolerate substandard quality of work on the project as millions of people will be connected through the route,” he said.
