Railway projects wont cause even 10% of tree reduction compared to what Highway projects does. Its Auto and Cab lobby which are trying to delay BSRP as much as possible in the name of environment

Just ask those environmental experts who oppose metro --
1. how many taxis ply from/ to airport in a day?
2. What is the quantity of petrol sold in a day for 2 wheelers and cars?
3. How much poisonous gases are released due to traffic congestion per day?
...
more...

What are the pollution levels in existing metro routes 2 years back and current ? Especially in and around KR Puram Whitefield Marathahalli area?

Just check how many cabs and taxis are owned by those opposing metro.

Those who affected by the metro and suburban will oppose it using various reasons, Irony is those who oppose it are very minority with strong lobby than majority people who benefit out of it. Cities like Oslo, Helsinki which have comparable population of 2 tier cities in India like Trichy, Tirupathy, Belagavi has more metro, tram and sub urban than what our metros have. Government should understand it and promote sustainable public transport using good means.

Great
Wow, never knew that individuals travelling by their individual vehicles emitting more greenhouse gases by burning the oils derived from the fossils are environment friendly and leads to sustainable development, as told by the so called nature lovers, instead of travelling collectively under a common vehicle that can carry thousands, minimise the traffic in the city and being operated through electricity.
.
Losing some trees is really bad for construction of path for such a common transport whose carrying capacity is more and which is operated through cleaner fuel and less green
...

house gas emissions and instead the roads should be made wide by cutting more trees and more vehicles should ply in such a way that more greenhouse gases are being emitted and it is more environment friendly as per so called environmental enthusiasts.
.
Thanks for enlightening.
