Hyderabad: A trio, including a techie, an entrepreneur and an architect designed and painted an air-conditioned modern bus shelter opposite Shilparamam, at Hitec City, on the theme ‘Emerging Hyderabad’.
The painting depicts Hyderabad metro, flyovers and underpasses that are coming up, the T-Hub, and an airport expansion, apart from the iconic Charminar.
“We created two designs and this one was shortlisted. We are a team of seven guys, who come from different backgrounds, including engineers, art and architects etc. But for this work, three of us worked,” Vinay Cheguri, who is also a software engineer with the TCS, said.
This team has previously painted the Director of Municipal Administration Office in Lakdikapul, Government Schools in Warangal and TRS Bhavan, among others.
The bus shelter with vertical gardens on either side was inaugurated on Tuesday by minister K.T. Rama Rao. The shelter is equipped with a baby feeding room, toilets, kiosks, smoke detectors and SoS button which will alert a command centre in case of emergencies.
The ATM provision is yet to made available while the snacks provided will be kept below Rs 50. This Grade 1 bus shelter is part of the 826 bus stops that are coming up in the city. The minister said that the city would have at least 30 such bus shelters with ultra-modern facilities....
