Large scale urbanisation and rapid growth of vehicles had put stress on the existing urban transport system in Ludhiana and the problems had become unmanageable.An official said: "The Comprehensive Mobility Plan will enhance the connectivity as well as the pattern of future physical and economic growth. At the same time, the amount proposed by the company in next 20 years is about Rs 46,000 crore. If such plan is to be introduced, regular grants will be required from both the Central and the Punjab governments. Improvements can be done but the only problem is about the resources at the moment."
