Gurugram's oldest and busiest market, Sadar Bazar, will be vehicle-free for the first time.

The Municipal corporation has planned to revamp the Bazar like Chandni Chowk, by conducting a week-long "Pedestrianisation Trial" in Sadar Bazar Market Street, and a school zone in the neighbourhood. This would mean cordoning-off a 600m stretch for motor vehicles, along with an adjoining school-zone.

The week-long trial begins with Raahgiri Day on 20 March, 2021 (Saturday). Suitable arrangements are being made for comfortable access and commute of market users, including the elderly, children, and people with disabilities.

Parking management and mobility plans have been prepared for the area. Keeping the needs of shop owners, and visitors— on parallel streets—in consideration, 2-wheelers and 4-wheelers have designated parking locations, both reserved and unreserved.

For a successful trial, drivers will need to refer and follow the updated parking plan.

"The transformation of the area would be beneficial for every stakeholder, from visitors and shoppers to residents, and those for whom the market is a workplace. All citizens are invited to join their city’s initiative for a street experience like never before," said Vinay Pratap Singh, MCG Commissioner.
