About 10 important roads pass through the Gir connecting neighbouring districts. Once the roads close, Gir's population of 400+ Asiatic Lions will have at peace at nights.

The Gujarat forest and environment department has banned entry of vehicles on the roads passing through Gir National Park and Sanctuary, the last abode of Asiatic Lions, at night.

The move by the forest department will give a much needed relief to the wildlife in the Gir as about 10 important roads pass through the sanctuary. This step will decrease the risk of accident to animals and also save it from disturbance and noise pollution.
