Thursday, September 16, 2021

The Mysuru City Corporation (MCC) will construct a cycle lane as part of its plans to build an environment-friendly transport system in the city. This is in tune with the India Cycles4Change Challenge (C4C), an initiative of the Smart Cities Mission, Ministry of Housing and Urban Affairs, Government of India to inspire and support cities in the country to implement quick cycling-friendly initiatives in response to COVID-19. The Ministry of Housing and Urban Affairs launched the Challenge on June 25, 2020.

Corporation has identified Kantharaj Urs , Krishnaraja Boulevard , Jhansi Rani Lakshmi Bai, Radhakrishna Avenue and Chamaraja double road for building cycle lanes. It also plans to construct cycle lanes in University of Mysore, Maharaja College, district court , Mysuru Urban Development office and Sangeet University.

Mysuru launched the country's first public bicycle scheme called Trin Trin in 2017. But there are no dedicated cycle paths in the city except the one in front of Administrative Training Institute (ATI) built many years ago. At the time of launching Trin Trin scheme, there was a demand for construction of a cycle path, but no progress was made in the direction.
