    don't allow the buses to load/unload at the entry/points. This should be at another location otherwise the buses will block and create traffic jams

    keep the private buses away this time

    Picking passengers at the entrance is not the correct way,either from a Rail-station, or bus station is the mostsuitable way.

    Yes, 'grate' means to rub into little pieces.

    will they be new buses as none of the present buses can maintain 100kmph for long. Its a pleasure to drive the E01 now hope buses will not make it a nightmare.

    Employ specially trained drivers to maintain the quality. Don't let the 'terror on the roads" reign on E01, like in other roads.

    Wow that's cool but please please dont ever allow Private buses
