New Year will bring joy to Lucknowites as from January people will enjoy ride on a 30 seater air-conditioned water-bus on river Gomti. The bus would travel through the 8.5 km-stretch (Kudiya Ghat to Gandhi Setu), and will have the facility of jetties (for boat parking) at important river spots.
Irrigation department official said, “We would open it for public use from January first week. Just like in an airplane, there’s a window for every passenger seat to savour the beauty of the riverfront”. Safety jackets and safety divers will be provided to the riders on the boat. The department will also introduce a six-seater boat in Gomti for rescue, which will help in case of emergencies and during inspections also. Water-bus imported from Europe, launched in December last week for trials.
