Mini bus shelter not open for commuters

Mini bus shelter not open for commuters

This is a story of a bus shelter in front of Bharathibeedi Sante Market in Sringeri, which was inaugurated two years ago but has not been opened for public use yet.

Though large number of people wait for bus here, the local authority could only think of building a mini bus shelter. What is surprising is the fact that though the bus shelter has not been given for public use, one portion of the bus shelter had been conveniently given on rent through auction.

Mini bus shelter is the only place with toilet, barring the main bus stand. However, the toilet is also not open for public use.

“The local governing body is not eking out even a single penny from the structure, which was built at a cost of Rs 50 lakh, two years ago,” says a local resident.

Though the bus shelter witnessed laying of concrete road a pothole has been left untouched. Due to heavy rains, mucky water is collected in the pothole causing inconvenience to people.

Auto drivers of the town allege that the local governing body which neglected the pothole when the road repair work was on, is now dumping mud, gravel and sand into the pothole.
