Chief Minister of Maharashtra, Devendra Fadnavis, at the Global Mobility Summit in New Delhi, announced that the state will soon come up with nearly 10,000 km of corridors for non-motorised transport (NMT), which includes cycle tracks and regional roads for bicycles as well as pedestrian roads. Out of the 10,000 km, 6,000 km will be pedestrian pathways, 3,000 km will be for urban cycle tracks and another 1,000 km will be for regional roads for NMT’s such as bicycles, he further added.

According to Fadnavis, there is a need to acknowledge those who use the non-polluting mode of transport as they help to conserve the environment. Interestingly, this is likely to be the biggest integrated programme in order to develop the cleanest as well as the healthiest mode of transport in India.
