The Chandigarh Heritage Conservation Committee has proposed to create a “seamless” corridor connecting Sector 17 with Sukhna Lake for the convenience of tourists on foot.

To assess the viability of the proposal, UT Adviser and Chairman of the Heritage Committee, Vijay Kumar Dev, along with other members of the panel covered the distance on foot this morning.

“This will be developed as the master icon of Chandigarh. Our idea is to create a seamless corridor for movement of pedestrians, cycles and battery-operated vehicles,” said Anurag Aggarwal, Home-cum-Tourism Secretary, UT Administration.

The design for the corridor, to be prepared by panel members Rajneesh Vatts and Dalmeet Grewal, would be table in the next meeting of the heritage committee.

Meanwhile, from April 13, visitors will have access to the Capitol Complex.
