MCG plans to lay cycle tracks in all major roads within 3 years

DNA India. Gurgaon. Wednesday, 04 November 2015

The Municipal Corporation of Gurgaon (MCG) is planning to lay cycle tracks in all major roads in the city in the next three years, MCG Commissioner Vikas Gupta said during car-free day on Tuesday.

Work on some stretches in Old Gurgaon, such as Old Delhi-Gurgaon Road, has already begun, he said.

“Besides, a detailed plan for the city bus service has also been submitted to the Haryana government. We expect the government to approve it in the next couple of weeks,” Gupta said.

Meanwhile, the Gurgaon traffic police have decided to make a new corridor car-free every weekday by practising zero tolerance towards on-street parking.

“A new corridor will be added to the existing four car-free corridors. The police will not allow on-street parking on the new corridors,” said Navdeep Singh Virk, Gurgaon police commissioner
