No, Mono isn’t dead yet

[Cross posted on Praja]

It might be the one legged cousin of super glamorous Metro. But the Mono project isn’t dead if you thought so based on recent lack of news and updates on it. The Hindu reported that BMRC is close to making the call on picking a consultant for Mono. As expected, newspapers have more meat than BMRC website itself. However, BMRC has this cryptic sounding note on their news page right now:

THE SELECTION OF THE MONORAIL CONSULTANT IS STILL UNDER PROCESS. THE LETTERS WHICH HAVE BEEN PLACED IN THE WEBSITE ARE HEREBY WITHDRAWN. INCONVENIENCE REGRETTED.

Wonder what had happened there! Did they announce a winner and then withdraw it? Hope not.

Meanwhile, to remind you of the Mono routes:

  1. Kanakapura Road to Mysore Road Junction with a T connection from Kathriguppe to National College.
  2. Bannerghatta National Park to Adugodi.
  3. Jnanabharathi to Mysore Road (Outer Ring Road) with a T connection to Toll Gate on Magadi Road.
  4. Tumkur Road on Outer Ring Road to Bellary Road

  3. BMRC is funny – I appreciate the colourful logo etc.. but technically too the site was not up to the mark. I did write to them and even offered to redesign the site at no cost – but hey – the reply from some one in BMRC was that Dear Sir many people have liked and appreciated our site but they think each person sees design differntly – I was talking more in terms of aesthetics and content and updates.. the simplest thing was that HTML border was not equal to Zero – it shows a border on every table cell thats drawn on the site.. plus fonts and content and updates… the irony was the company which designed it and pocketed money is no longer existing LOL – what a joke.. I wish our govt can take some help from volunteers and execute things in a class of its own..

  4. hi santa, i agree with you that BMRC site is poorly designed. very sarkari. for example a simple thing they can do is make their news page & their page show latest first. the grafix look very cheezy. i think there is ziggidy zaggy arrow somewhere in the site.

    oh santa so you offered to volunteer? thats really cool.
