This route costs 435 by Chartered bus, and nearing 300 with normal buses.

New intercity electric bus started between Indore-Bhopal(200 kms approx.)
Fare -Rs.210
Range-300 kms.
I think this is the same bus which was earlier shown as MSRTC's 1st electric bus and then Purple showed as its electric bus,guess it worked for none of them.


Online booking portal shows its 399, not 210 as mentioned in tweet.

Atul Setu : The Atal Setu is a cable-stayed bridge in Goa that runs between Panaji and Porvorim. It carries National Highway 66 over the tidal part of the Mandovi River. It is 5.1 kilometres long, making it the third longest cable-stayed bridge in India. Construction of this bridge began in 27 July 2014 and it was opened in 5 February 2019.

Some pictures of Atul Setu.

Some videos of Atul Setu. For all those who are wondering why 2 wheelers are not allowed, it is because of the high speed winds. Also 3 wheelers are not allowed as well for the same reason. Let me tell you, I have myself travelled on Atul Setu with our family car and the winds are quite fast.

Any reason as to why most Metros being constructed are elevated and not underground, for Mumbai it made sense but why other places?

Ya'll Nibbiars cost underground cost a bomb. Instead if 150 crores for elevated per kms underground costs 300 crores.

Many reasons are there for why at times metros constructed are elevated and not underground.

For example building underground is more expensive as compared to elevated because to build underground, you have to dig a lot and at times due to the presence of hard rocks, boulders and the topography of the soil it is very hard to dig and hence it takes way more time as well, therefore it becomes very expensive too.

By the way do you know that Hyderabad Metro was at one point planned to be built Under ground? but due to unfavorable topography of the soil, L&T ruled out the idea of building it under ground.

Good point. In some areas, the soil is not stable enough to permit underground metros. Overall, I prefer elevated systems because from a maintenance and repair standpoint, it is more economically feasible to maintain & repair elevated systems than underground.
