Plan to close expressway to traffic for use by joggers on Sundays

The chairman of the Peruvian Sports Institute (IPD) Arturo Woodman has stated that a study is being undertaken into the possibility of closing the main Lima expressway to motor vehicles on Sundays in order to open it up for cyclists and runners. The measure would apply between 6 and 11am.

Woodman assured journalists that the plan is being coordinated with transport authorities so as to coincide with the time when the expressway is least busy, so as to cause minimum inconvenience to drivers.

A similar measure is already in effect in Bogotá, Colombia, where it has proved extremely popular.
