‘Cycling for Change’ a Demand for Sustainable Transport Infrastructure in Gurgaon

Delhi, New Delhi, Gurgaon, Haryana, India, Thursday, August 08, 2013 — (Business Wire India) — The fact is that you aren’t just stuck in traffic, you are traffic too, and the solution definitely doesn’t lie in building more roads as almost 66 new flyovers have been built in Delhi in the last decade but the traffic condition is getting worse day by day.

NASSCOM’s NMT cell (Non – Motorized Transport cell) has the solution. Increasing road infrastructure could have been a solution if there were a limited number of vehicles on the road. The ever increasing road pressure and pathetic traffic conditions along with environmental hazard has led to the birth of this campaign “Active Commuting” spearheaded by Nagarro Software of Gurgaon.

To begin with and promote and popularize forms of non-motorized transportation, an IT company of Gurgaon Nagarro Software decided to lead the campaign with a unique step. Approximately 60 odd employees of the IT Company decided to cycle on Saturday morning to generate awareness in people around. The usage of such forms of transportation can lead to resolving so many other issues and is not just a solution to one problem. It drastically affects the pathetic traffic condition in the city; it will help in bringing down the alarming rate of air pollution and most importantly would help develop a better infrastructure for cyclists and pedestrians in the city.

Dr. Manas Fuloria, co-founder and MD Europe for Nagarro Software and an active member of NASSCOM Regional Council, Gurgaon led this cycle rally on Saturday morning from Leisure Valley Park, sector 29, Gurgaon to Qutub Minar, New Delhi. An approximate distance of 20 odd kms was covered with full enthusiasm and Great Spirit by a team of 60-65 IT employees.

Along with the demand for better sustainable transport infrastructure the campaign also intends to demand for better and strong public transportation system in Delhi NCR that would connect the NCR in a better manner. Major agenda of this campaign is demand for shuttle buses to metro, availability of more and frequent buses, a better improved bus tracks that can allow free movement, better and dedicated lanes for pedestrians and cyclists.
