The traffic woes in Delhi are unending; with so many cars on the street, we often find very little to no place to walk or cycle through. Roads in Delhi are either a death trap or a snail race, the speeding cars and the unending traffic jams make the roads in Delhi impossible to walk or cycle on.

To curb the issue, the public works department and Delhi Urban Art Commission, have planned a 100 kilometer bicycle and pedestrian friendly route. The stretch of road goes through parks and major forested area in Delhi, making it pretty and quite relaxing.

To ensure that people who want to opt for a greener and a more eco-friendly mode of transportation, the civic bodies want to ensure that the corridor would touch metro stations, campuses, sports complexes, government buildings, hospitals, high density and low income pockets, as well as industrial and institutional areas.

The best part about the corridor?

The corridor would not only be a greener and a more safer option for cycle rides and pedestrians, it would also be environment friendly. The civic body has ensured that not even a single tree would be cut while developing the corridor.

With the corridor, the civic bodies also aim to bring people to the public parks and the forest covered areas.

The areas it is expected to cover

According a report by TOI, the said corridor will be connected will with institutional areas such as Qutab and Siri Fort; industrial areas like Okhla, Mayapuri and Jhandewalan; business districts like Nehru Place, Bhikaji Cama Place, Janakpuri and Connaught Place; sports complexes like Siri Fort, Jasola, Jawaharlal Nehru and CWG Village; and hospitals.

With the corridor, civic bodies aim to provide a hassle free, environment friendly route for cyclists and pedestrians. While connecting to metro stations and major public transport accessible areas, the route would also ensure that last mile connectivity can be provided from metros and other public transports like buses. Add to it the newly introduced app based bike sharing system and Delhi will have a new mode of transportation that is not only greener but more safe and reliable.
