A completed section of the upcoming cycle track in Hyderabad (@Bachanjeet_TNIE/Twitter) The construction of sustainable solar roof cycling track around Hyderabad’s Outer Ring Road (ORR) is nearing completion. It is expected to be inaugurated in the first week of September.
This 23-kilometre track is first-of-its-kind and is designed to be environmentally-friendly.
According to the Special Chief Secretary for Municipal Administration and Urban Development (MA&UD), the civil work on bike path around the ORR is almost finished.
The MA&UD personnel is now working on projects involving beautification and the addition of plants to the cycling track. Construction on the cycling track’s solar rooftop panels is set to begin in the next 10 days, he said.
The planned cycle track with solar roofing can accommodate three cycle lanes and 1-metre wide green space on either side of the way. In addition, the cycle track can generate 16 MW of power through its solar roof, which would be used for ORR lighting, drip irrigation and other power requirements of the expressway.
Hyderabad Growth Corridor Limited (HGCL), a wing of Hyderabad Metropolitan Development Authority (HMDA), is implementing the plan inspired by such facilities in South Korea.
