GHMC to install oxygen parks under flyovers in Hyderabad

Hyderabad: The Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation (GHMC) is going to increase the green cover in Hyderabad by installing oxygen parks under flyovers. The aim is to convert vacant spaces under the city’s flyovers into beautiful green spaces, also known as ‘Oxygen Parks.’

Recently, Telangana State Minister for Panchayatraj and Rural Development, Errabelli Dayakar Rao announced the move to convert flyovers in Hyderabad into green spaces. One of the first such facilities is coming up under the Kamineni flyover in the LB Nagar zone.

Under this initiative, authorities will plant saplings with the capacity of releasing more oxygen compared to other regular species.
