The proposed bus terminal will be developed on 12-acre land belonging to Cuttack Municipal Corporation (CMC) at a cost of Rs 65 crore. The terminal will have motifs and paintings on Netaji’s life and his sacrifice for the country. The terminal will have a three-storeyed terminal building, regular bus bays to accommodate 180 buses at a time, space for local and Mo Bus service, bus repair workshop and special parking lot for four-wheelers and three-wheelers.
The terminal will have all amenities like ticket counters, restroom, cloakroom, food court, and e-vehicle charging station, rooftop rainwater harvesting, and solar panels. It will also have an integrated information management system for the benefit of passengers.
The idea behind setting up a new bus terminal was to accommodate an increasing number of buses and ensure modern facilities for passengers as the existing one in Badambadi area remains crowded all the time.
