Bus Stops in Delhi to don modern look
New Delhi, Apr 14 (UNI) In a bid to transform Delhi into a modern capital city in the run up to the 2010 Commonwealth Games, bus stops in the national capital will soon don a modern look.
Nearly 200 world class shelters - replete with modern signages, telephone booths, fluoroscent tubes on the roofs and surrounded by a green area - will, in the coming months, dot the Connaught Place and its surrounding areas in the heart of the city. This is a joint initiative by the New Delhi Municipal Council NDMC and JC Decaux, the number one advertising company in Europe.
JC Decaux has signed an exclusive 15-year bus shelter advertising contract with the NDMC to build and operate the new facilities in the centre of Delhi, following the invitation of a tender.
Under the terms of the contract, JC Decaux will build the world class bus shelters to be installed in some of the most prominent locations in the centre of New Delhi such as Connaught Place, Janpath and other main arterial roads,''Mr Jean Charles Decaux, chairman of J C Decaux said at a press conference here today.
''We plan to build 197 modern and 'chic' bus shelters in the centre of Delhi. The emphasis in the designing of the shelters, which will begin operating from June one, will be on their beautification by adding signages on the top of the shelters and through installation of fluoroscent tubes hidden beneath the front part of the roof,''Mr Decaux added.
