Need for A Bicycle Corridor - A Case Study of Khazuri Khas - Gandhi Nagar Route, New Delhi, India

Ranju Mohan

Abstract: The safety of the bicycle riders is being compromised with the day-to-day increase in motorized traffic and pays little attention towards providing a safe and pollution free environment to the bicycle riders. This paper aims to propose a cycle corridor from Khajuri Khas to Gandhi Nagar, New Delhi. Huge number of bicycle riders travel on this route daily. The area is a heavy traffic zone where traffic jams are a routine thing and hence bicycle riders are forced to travel on wrong side of the road or on footpaths which is dangerous for them as well as for pedestrians. The proposed cycle corridor of 4.5 km long is expected to cause congestion reduction in the studied route and assist safer and convenient travelling. The corridor will promote cycling and also aims at curbing pollution in the area.
