Urban development and Metro rail expert said that “The strategic importance of the location cannot be understated, but the RoB is a major hindrance. Design changes in RoB are being considered so that the Stud Farms location remains a viable alternative for Metro rail depot.” The initial proposal for Metro rail had pitched for a depot near the international airport.
Some information has been also collected from an official that tweaking the design of the under-construction project means further delay in completion of the RoB. Many experts have in the past been critical of the development of the RoB. Objections regarding the construction of RoB were raised before the PWD when it undertook the task of expansion of Chetak Bridge in Bhopal.
