Commercial Street will turn 'Happy Street' today

The City police in association with Bengaluru Commercial Association, will organise ‘Happy Streets’ on Commercial Street on Sunday. The vehicular movement on the entire stretch will be banned from 7 am to 2 pm.

A senior police officer said that the event aims to encourage people to take a walk on the street by leaving behind their vehicles. “Usually the Commercial Street is jam-packed with vehicles and pedestrians get little space. On Sunday, we want people to take a walk and enjoy the fun-filled activities.”

M A Saleem, Additional Commissioner of Police (Traffic) said, “Whoever is visiting Commercial Street on Sunday will have to leave behind their vehicles. After the success of banning vehicles in Cubbon Park on particular days, we are implementing it on Commercial Street,” he said.
