Yeah but their timeline is 30 years, so all those people will be dead before it's done.

If things remain the same, once they spend the $100 million BJP money on unneccessary ROW and the first phase turns out to be a failure, the rest will probably never happen because the federal government won't fund it (aka. the skyway).  If this happens, it will be too bad, because the concept of bus rapid transit, when used properly, can improve the overall quality of a regional mass transit network.
