Hyderabad’s ORR set to turn world-class
Hyderabad, this wonderful city has been all over the news for its consistent efforts for upgrading its infrastructure to a whole next level. Be it a Hi-Tech city or an IT park, the city has been looking forward to enhancing the ambiance and easing the lifestyle not just by making things convenient but also by lifting up technically.
This time, the Hyderabad metropolitan development authority (HDMA) is shape-shifting the ORR (outer ring road) to the level of roads in developed countries and we all can’t wait to see that happen. There are so many developments on the way such as constructing a 21-km long solar-powered cycle track, developing lush greenery areas, decorating and installing some amazing sculptures, entry and exit ramps to connect ORR, and many others.
Some projects have been already finished such as illumination of the entire ORR using LEDs, life-saving trauma care centre, and drip irrigation systems. Telangana government has wonderfully clubbed environment protection and conservation measured with the infrastructure development to build eco-sustainable systems in and around the city and make the city greener. The ongoing solar roof cycle track is something very unique in the city which is never been seen before and the electricity generated using this will be powering up long 136km LED lights placed between kokapet and shamshabad with a net production of 9MW.
Before the partition of Telangana, the city and the outskirts had limited resources, especially limited power supply, and a poor illumination of ORR resulted in many accidents and now the electricity which will be the outcome of the solar-powered roof will be powering up the 158-km ORR along with the advanced drip irrigation system along the expressway. Like this, HDMA has also taken up new measures to slow down the traffic, road-width into the account and planned to make the two-lane road to four-lane road. Like this there are many new upgradation are coming up.
