Municipal Corporation of Gurugram (MCG) Commissioner Vinay Pratap Singh announced another 25-km of cycle tracks to be constructed in the city this month. The MCG Commissioner announced this at the ‘Raahgiri’ event on Saturday, November 7, a month after Gurugram got its first cycle track due to the efforts of the MCG and the Gurugram Metropolitan Development Authority (GMDA).
Singh, whale his address said, “Gurgaon is participating in the ‘Streets for People’ challenge and ‘India Cycles for Change’ challenge, initiatives of the Ministry of Housing and Urban Affairs (MoHUA), under which citizens are being encouraged to walk the streets of their city, cycle and use the spaces socially. This can inspire the city to convert these temporary interventions into permanent infrastructure.”
Earlier, on October 2, the GMDA and MCG inaugurated the first dedicated bicycle track in Gurugram on both sides of Netaji Subhash Marg from Huda City Centre to Subhash Chowk. And, as per Singh, the tracks will be further expanded for 25 km in the current month. With this, Gurugram became the second city in the state of Haryana to have cycle tracks.
