Hyderabad's Green Campaign to Increase Lung Space
The Telangana Government has prioritized the development of urban lung spaces in the form of ample greenery in and around Hyderabad, while also executing large-scale infrastructure projects such as road widening, the construction of flyovers, underpasses, Road under Bridges (RuBs), and Road over Bridges (ROBs). In the recent 12-18 months, the Hyderabad Metropolitan Development Authority (HMDA) and Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation (GHMC) have developed many urban-themed parks to boost green cover and aesthetics.
The GHMC has developed 20 theme parks and will build 53 more. Twenty-seven theme parks are undergoing civil works, while the remaining lung areas are being developed. LB Nagar and Serilingampally will have women's theme parks and children's parks. In Kukatpally, a Bathukamma park will promote Telangana culture.
