Akhilesh Yadav, the young Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh has pleasantly surprised us all with his revolutionary plans and initiatives. This time too, we love his new idea of 190 km Cycle Highway!
This highway will traverse from Agra to Etawah amidst the magnificent Lion Safari. To ensure the safety of cyclists, there will be personnel stationed to ensure that no other vehicles are allowed on this road. The proposed Cycle Highway will be 7 feet wide and will not pass through any major cities and traffic prone areas to provide better experience. The PWD officials are still contemplating the exact connections and diversions but have confirmed that the cyclist will be able to enjoy nature and scenic beauty of Yamuna and Chambal.
The main purpose of the Cycle Highway is to conserve the environment while taking care of one’s health. The researchers and tourists can ride on this path and witness crocodiles, dolphins, and other wildlife while on the move. And this is not the first such initiative by the People’s CM. Akhilesh Yadav has also constructed a 103 Km long cycle track in Lucknow passing through major milestones of the city. Similarly, there is work going on in Noida, Varanasi, Kanpur, and Allahabad.
This Cycle Highway will be the first of its kind road in India designed just for cyclists. Such concepts are very popular all over the world and we thank Akhilesh Sir to bring the country’s first to Uttar Pradesh.
