Non motorized vehicles to get second chance in Gurgaon with new cycle track
Now that the show is over nation-wide, it is time for action and for the political parties to keep their promises. Among a number of plans, which was in its nascent stages in Gurgaon, the city is finally about to get a cycle track. The Municipal Corporation of Gurgaon ( MCG) is about to get an official sanction for the 22 km cycle track in the city. A number of cycle enthusiasts would be thrilled at the prospect.

The track is proposed to be laid down at the Old Delhi-Gurgaon Road and the MG Road. As was reported by the timesofIndia, An engineer to the project, said, ''We will have a seven kilometer long cycle lane on one side of the Old Delhi-Guraon Road, and the same length on the other side. The cycle track on the MG Road will run to around four kilometres in length on either side.''

A number of cycle enthusiasts who have their own groups would find it a relief from the congested city roads. The bid to promote non motorized roadways in one of the topmost messages of Raahgiri and the laying down of this road would ensure some respite to both motorized and non motorized riders. It would also promote cycling as a secondary option for many people in the city.

Talking some more on the subject, Singroha said that most other municipal stretches in the city are too congested to accommodate roadside cycle tracks as of now. "HUDA roads are better suited for cycle lanes, because of their width. They are also working on a similar project in their areas," he added.
