Residents pedal towards a greener Islamabad

Cyclists are taking to the streets of the Pakistani capital of Islamabad

Islamabad authorities hope the 5 km (3.11 miles) of cycle track, costing around $20,000, will help reduce public reliance on fuel-guzzling vehicles that have degraded the sprawling city’s air quality.

The cycle paths were conceived more than half a century ago under a master plan for the city’s development when it was designated as the capital, but were never inaugurated and fell into disrepair. They have now been restored to fulfill their original purpose.
