Gurgaon has a new and first-of-its-kind dedicated cycling track that has opened to the public on Friday. The cycle track that covers a distance of 9.6 kilometres between Huda City Centre and Subhash Chowk was developed by Gurugram Metropolitan Development Authority (GMDA) along with the Municipal Corporation of Gurugram (MCG).

The cycling track in Gurgaon was thrown open to the public with a cyclothon that saw the participation of more than 1,500 people in the early hours of Friday morning.

“The first cyclothon of this year was organised on the occasion of World Car Free Day on September 22 along Golf Course Road. At that time, the idea of building a special cycle track came up. This cycle track is dedicated to the common man and we are appealing to the citizens to continue using it so that there is no encroachment on the track and cyclists can keep availing the facility to the fullest,” said chief executive officer (CEO) of GMDA, VS Kundu (as reported on Hindustan Times).

The new cycling track is the first among many projects that GMDA and MCG are planning to undertake in order to achieve 650 kilometres of dedicated cycle tracks around the city. Authorities are affirmative that this is a step in the right direction and are sure that it will be a game-changer for Gurgaon.

The next phase of the project will see similar cycle tracks from Huda City Centre to other major areas like MG Road, Gurgaon-Faridabad Road, Golf Course Road, and Extension Road and Signature Towers.

These initiatives will come under the scope of the Ministry of Housing and Urban Affairs through various trailblazing campaigns like Cycles4Change and Streets4People. The cycling tracks will reduce traffic in the area and will also contribute to diminished pollution levels if it becomes a success.
