HMRL develops sidewalk on par with global standards
The Hyderabad Metro Rail Limited (HMRL) has developed a five-km continuous stretch of sidewalk with global standards.
The sidewalk, developed at a cost of about Rs five crore, has a quality public space ranging from 8ft to 22ft with specially-made designer tiles, paver blocks and others. It has also added bays for buses, autos & e-vehicle besides parking areas and safety railings in consultation with Telangana State Road Transport Corporation, Traffic Police and the Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation officials without disturbance to the main carriage way.
The cost would be recovered from monetisation of the stretch, by allowing a limited number of kiosks, advertisements boards among others in dead spaces and in wider areas.
