Ggm cycling tracks lie unused due to encroachments

Poor design, encroachments, and lack of maintenance have rendered the four cycling tracks in Gurugram, India almost unusable, forcing cyclists to avoid them. Despite plans to expand the existing tracks, residents say the tracks are often used as parking lots and encroached upon by food cart vendors. In the last seven years, more than 150 cyclists were injured and 75 killed in road accidents due to the lack of road infrastructure and dedicated lanes. The Gurugram Metropolitan Development Authority has pledged to take measures to maintain the tracks and curb encroachments.
