Hyderabad will soon have cycle tracks

by Subhechcha Ganguly

With pedestrian pathways, bicycle lanes, parking lots, and vending zones planned to be built on either side of a select few roadways, Hyderabad is soon slated to have “model corridors” in a few neighbourhoods. The Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation (GHMC) has designed a total of 29 such model corridors in areas of the city such LB Nagar, Chandrayangutta, Rajendranagar, Mehdipatnam, Khairatabad, Serilingampally, and Nanakramguda.For a total of 22 kilometres in two sections in the western areas of Hyderabad, namely 8.45 kilometres from Nanakramguda to the Telangana State Police Academy (TSPA) and 13.8 kilometres from Narsingi to Kollur, a 4.5-meter wide cycle track is proposed alongside the ORR.Three cycling lanes and one metre wide green space can be found on either side of the proposed solar-roofed bike path. The cycle track can also produce 16 MW of power through its solar roof, which would be used for the expressway’s ORR lighting, drip irrigation, and other power needs.


The Telangana administration wants to finish this unusual project in the state’s capital by 2023, far ahead of the state’s elections this year, which will take place in November or December. A total of 21.5 km of model corridors are being built at a cost of Rs. 568.2 crore. The GHMC claimed that because of the city’s expanding population, it is now more accountable to offer improved infrastructure.
