THE bicycle lanes here are being upgraded by the Putrajaya Corporation to encourage more members of the community to take up cycling.
Federal Territories and Urban Wellbeing Ministry chief secretary Datuk Ahmad Phesal Talib said the upgrading work was in progress and the ministry hoped to hold a cycling programme with Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak.
He said the upgrading of the cycling routes would also boost tourism in Putrajaya as cycling lanes would be connected to eight public parks around Putrajaya, namely Taman Botani, Taman Warisan Pertanian, Taman Wawasan, Taman Wetland, Taman Ekuastrian Putrajaya, Taman Putra Perdana, Taman Rimba Alam, and Taman Selatan.
"An evaluation team is reviewing the upgrading plans which will include linking bicycle lanes and having bicycle lane maps," said Ahmad Phesal after the launch of the FT Day Fly The FT Flag cycling convoy campaign held in Precint 2 here.
The event saw some 800 people cycling around Putrajaya while flying the FT flags.
The convoy took an hour to complete the 24km journey, which started from the Seri Wilayah Tower public parking lots and ended at the same place.
Meanwhile, Ahmad Phesal said Najib would launch the month-long FT Day celebration on Jan 28 at Dataran Merdeka in Kuala Lumpur.
Deputy Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin is expected to attend the closing ceremony on Feb 26.
