Gowliguda Bus Station Collapses, No Casualties

Hyderabad | 5th July 2018
The Gowliguda City Bus Station, known as CBS, collapsed this morning. However, there were no casualties and no loss of assets as officials had coincidentally stopped entry of buses into the CBS since June 30 noting the decrepit condition of the structure.

The CBS was constructed during the Nizam era in 1930 as the Nizam's own hangar for his aircraft. It was made a bus stand in 1951 when the RTC took it over. The first RTC bus depot was also in Gowliguda. It served as the main inter-city bus depot of Hyderabad until the MGBS came up in Secunderabad and the CBS turned into a depot for city buses.

More than 500 bus services were operating from the CBS with 2,385 trips every day before it was closed.

RTC in-charge MD Sunil Sharma was supposed to visit the hangar (called the Mississippi hangar) today, and luckily for him it collapsed a few hours before his visit was scheduled. Sharma said that the corporation would construct a new bus station in place of the collapsed one.
