Vellore bus stand site finalised

VELLORE, OCT. 11. Vellore Municipality has earmarked 23.49 acres of land between Old Katpadi Road and New Katpadi Road for the construction of a new bus stand.

The land comprises the 19.47 acres on the Old Katpadi Road chosen by the municipality and approved by State Government. However, given growth forecasts for Vellore and surrounding areas, the 19.47 acres was considered insufficient for the new bus stand. After a joint inspection of the sites on September 28, Vellore Collector S. Gopalakrishnan and Commissioner of Town and Country Planning B. Anand suggested that the bus stand be constructed on a total extent of 23.49 acres, by adding another 4.02 acres earmarked for industrial and commercial use between the Old and New Katpadi Roads, which was vacant.

The municipal council endorsed the proposal, and asked the Government to sanction the 23.49 acres.
