Pilot program to allocate separate lanes for bicycle users in Colombo from today (July 29)
The Colombo Municipal Council (CMC) is going to launch a pilot program to allocate a separate lane for bicycle users today (July 29) as there is a significant increase in the use of push bikes in Sri Lanka due to current fuel and transport problems.
A senior official of the Colombo Municipal Council said that the pilot program will be launched today at 11:00 AM in front of Bank Avenue, Colombo.
He said that separate lanes have been reserved for bicycles on Bank Avenue and slots have been allocated for safe parking of bicycles.
The official added that apart from the pilot program in Bank Avenue, there is also a plan to allocate a separate bicycle lane on George R. de Silva Mawatha in Kotahena from today (July 29).
That is a good idea. The bogus luxury life is over. Leave the car and ride a bicycle and keep the mad motorist out of our roads to avoid conjunction and danger.
Of course Ranjih – ” keep the mad motorist out of our roads to avoid conjunction and danger” … we always knew conjunctivitis was a dangerous thing. Thanks for reminding us our resident Wiseman!
