Despite beauty drive, trash continues to stay on Necklace Road in Hyderabad

The Necklace road stretch is owned and maintained by the BPP body

Hyderabad: The temporary dumping yard on Necklace road, opposite People’s Plaza, which had also caused the Governor to complain of a foul smell, from Hussainsagar in summer, is now a major concern as Necklace road is among the 14 sites identified to be visited by hundreds of international guests during Metropolis Week.

The Buddha Purnima Project wing of the Hyderabad Metropolitan Development Authority sent around ten letters to the Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation to remove the dumping yard.

Similar directions were sent communicated by the Municipal Administration and Urban Development authorities as well.

However, the GHMC has said it is are unable to do so since it does not have another suitable site.

The 2.3 km Necklace road stretch is owned and maintained by the BPP body. The temporary dumping yard, which is spread across half an acre, is adjacent to the parking area.

It was inspected several times by the then MA&UD minister, P. Mahender Reddy, who also instructed the GHMC commissioner to shift the dumping yard.

“The dumping yard is 80-100 metres away from Raj Bhavan aerial- wise. The BPP inspection revealed that the air blows towards Raj Bhavan which causes the Governor to complain to the Pollution Control Board this summer. Several important events and exhibition are held at the People’s Plaza and Citizens Park adjacent to the dumping yard. Ten letters have been written to the GHMC. This dumping yard will only ensure that the area looks ugly despite beautification works on the 2.3 km stretch,” said BPP officials.
