By Express News ServiceTHIRUVANANTHAPURAM: The KSRTC bus depot in Poovar, a tourist destination located on the southern side of Thiruvananthapuram district, is set to get a makeover.
The old and dilapidated asbestos-roofed sheds which were built when the depot began operations in the mid-1970s, will be converted to a 3,000-sq-ft concrete structure with basic amenities.
We hope to shift to the new building in a month or two,” said S Mohammed Basheer, assistant transport officer, Poovar depot.
The depot started as an operating centre for buses from Neyyatinkara and Parassala depots in 1970 and became a sub-depot with 35 schedules a couple of years later.
At present, the depot operates 60 schedules but lost around 14 schedules due to cancellation of ordinary service in by route and superclass services.
