Srinagar: Different cycle tracks that are coming in various parts of Srinagar city will ease the traffic congestion.
An official said that Srinagar city will present a different look after the completion of Smart City works. He said that over 100 cycling points will be created in different parts where people can take cycles on rent.
The official told news agency Kashmir News Trust that work is being fast-tracked on cycle tracks, smart vending zones, VMDs, and parking lots among other new projects started under the Smart City project in Srinagar.
Since 2020, work on 5-km -long cycle track is underway on the North-South corridor from Elahibagh junction to Soura junction.

‘The new cycle tracks would give cyclists a feel of the heritage and culture of Srinagar,” said the official.
Pertinently, last year, District Administration Srinagar collaborated with a Bhopal-based startup to give a boost and encourage people to use cycles on Srinagar roads. “Using cycles will not only reduce pollution but it will also ease the traffic congestion,” the official added.
