KT Rama Rao Telangana Municipal Administration Minister on Tuesday, September 6, laid the foundation for a solar-roofed cycling track in Hyderabad. The Hyderabad Metropolitan Development Authority (HMDA) is developing the 23-km cycling track along the service road of the Outer Ring Road (ORR) between Nanakramguda to Telangana State Police Academy and from Narsingi to Kollur, the minister’s official Twitter account said.
The track which is around 23 km-long will be built in first phase and further would be expanded. It would be completed by 2023.
It is not only a cycling track but also solar roof top which generates about 16 MW of power which is used around the needed amenities. It is also installed with 24×7 CCTV surveillance along the track to ensure the safety. Along with the safety, Food kiosks, toilets, cycle parking docks, cycle repairing stations and also first aid centres would also be arranged. Cycle rental stations where cycles would be available for a nominal rent are also being planned.
