Cycling Roundabouts in Chandigarh

The Department of Architecture has submitted the designs of the cycling tracks to Engineering Department. Estimate of the project was decided after the drawings sent from Department of Architecture. The successful cycling track at Sector 26 led the Engineering Department to construct five more cycling roundabouts in the city.

Approximately 30 Lakhs will be spent on each roundabout to make mobility of cycles easy at these roundabouts. The estimate for all the roundabouts will be different and different tenders will be appointed, this is basically meant to make different companies work together on a large scale. This way the construction will be completed within time duration provided.

The size of the cycling track will be similar to that of Sector 26 already constructed. The traffic rules will also be the same as followed at Sector 26 that at green the cycles or rickshaws will move and at the red light, the rest of the traffic shall move.

Administrator of Engineering Department has allotted the city into 8 zones and creating V1, V2 and V3 roads to construct 60 km cycling track. After the tender is passed the work will soon start to develop the city into a Smart City. Apart from this the cycling tracks at different roundabouts estimate are ready.

The police will help the cyclists use the tracks without any difficulty by asking the commuters not to use the track meant for the cyclists.
