Hyderabad: Hyderabad has emerged as the city with the maximum number of vertical gardens in the country, courtesy the initiatives taken up by the Municipal Administration and Urban Development (MA&UD) department. One of the green practices, the development of vertical gardens under flyovers has seen several of these facilities getting dotted with vertical gardens. MA&UD Special Chief Secretary Arvind Kumar in a tweet mentioned that Hyderabad has the maximum number of vertical gardens in the city.

“With 79 vertical gardens (on flyover pillars) including ongoing ones on Shaikpet & Owaisi flyover & Bio-diversity junction, #Hyderabad now has the largest number of these V gardens when compared with any City in India. We will make it 100 this coming year @KTRTRS @krishna_dcf,” he tweeted.

Besides increasing the number of vertical gardens, the MA&UD department has also come up with other environmental conservation initiatives too. It has created a space within a space by developing parks equipped with walking tracks under the city flyovers. Currently, Shaikpet Flyover in the western part of the city and a flyover near Kamineni Hospital, LB Nagar in the eastern part of the city are two such facilities.
