Delta State Government is to introduce the Bus Rapid Transit, BRT, model in the country’s oil and gas industry hub, Warri.

With this development, and as part of the state government’s transport development plan, Warri will be the third city in Africa to develop the BRT initiative, after Lagos and Johanessburg, South Africa.

The state governor, Dr. Emmanuel Uduaghan, made the disclosure at the on-gonig 60th Congress of the International Association of Public Transport, UITP, in Geneva, Switzerland.

UITP is the international network for public transport authorities and operators, policy decision makers, scientific institutes and public transport supply and service industry and global advocate of sustainable mobility.

It is a platform for worldwide cooperation, business development and the sharing of know-how between its 3,400 members from 92 countries.

Uduaghan, represented by his Commissioner for Transport, Mr. Ben Igbakpa, said the seven-month old idea from its conception, traffic surveys and feasibility studies, topographic surveys, detailed engineering designs to bill of engineering measurements and evaluation, will now be followed by award of contract, in July.

The Warri BRT scheme, which is driven by the governor, according to Igbakpa, is an expression of political will and recognition of the importance of public transport to a large percentage of the populace. - Vanguard
