The cycling track would cover 14.5 km between Narsingi and Kollur and 8.5 km between Nanakramguda and the Telangana State Police Academy (TSPA). The cycling track will run between the main highway and the city-side service road on the ORR. An improved version of the South Korean concept with superior aesthetics, the proposed cycle track in Hyderabad offers more amenities, including lighting, rain protection, parking, and other amenities like food stalls.
The pilot project taken up near Hyderabad’s IT corridor is expected to benefit a large number of bicycle users who ride cycles to their offices.
