In its fourth year since inception in 2015, The Hindu Car-Free Sundays in association with the Corporation of Chennai, Chennai Traffic Police, ITDP and City Connect saw Chennaiites come together to continue their fitness journey in an environment that is not only free of vehicles but pollution too.

 

Said Navaneeth L V, Chief Executive Officer, The Hindu Group: “The Hindu Car-Free Sundays is an initiative we are proud of. We are also looking to expand in more areas within Chennai and in other cities. What began as a one-off outing has now gone on to become a weekly habit for many regulars. This could not have been possible without the support of our partners and the love from the people.”

 

Added Suresh Balakrishna, Chief Revenue Officer, The Hindu Group: “Car-free interventions are a prime example of a comprehensive public health intervention. Car Free Sundays encourage social well-being through reduced environmental pollution. This is indeed a place for community building, and people from all walks of life enjoy this motor-free zone.”
