The Capital Development Authority in Islamabad has launched a project to build a 374-kilometer cycling and e-bike track, aiming to foster a healthier and more environmentally friendly lifestyle, reported 24NewsHD TV channel.
The project, which is expected to cost around 2.4 billion rupees, is set to be completed within eighteen months.
The cycling track will be strategically built alongside the Metro Bus routes, providing an easy transition for passengers from the bus to the cycling track.
This initiative aims to reduce the use of petrol-powered bikes and promote the use of electronic bikes, contributing to a cleaner environment.
The track will span across every sector in Islamabad, ensuring accessibility for all residents.
To further facilitate the citizens, 150 parking centers will be established where bikes will be available for rent at an affordable price. Each track will accommodate more than 40 bikes.
The official inauguration of the track will be graced by the presence of Prime Minister Shahbaz Sharif.
This project not only caters to the needs of conventional cyclists but also introduces the concept of electric bikes to enhance the commuting experience.
