The lush greenery between RTC X roads and Indira Park is all set to disappear as nearly 170 trees are going to be axed on this one and a half kilometer stretch. The reason being cited is that a bi-directional elevated flyover (steel bridge) proposed from Indira Park up to Nagamaiah Kunta slum, near Nallakunta’s Hindi Mahavidyalaya.
On either side of the stretch, a detailed joint inspection was carried out by GHMC’s engineering wing officials, forest department officials, and members of the TPC (Tree Protection Committee). For any mass felling of trees, a nod from TPC, comprising civil society members and officials.

Officials identified as many as 170 trees, during the inspection, aged between 30 and 10 years. On the stretch, no fruit trees have been found. Most of the trees are Ashoka, Gulmohar, Child-life trees and Pongamia, and other species.

According to an officer from the GHMC, the counting of the trees has been completed and the TPC has given its nod for removal of the trees. Keeping in view the state government’s priority on the protection of greenery, efforts are being made to protect as many trees as possible by the GHMC. The translocation of trees will be done wherever it is possible, as per the sources. The official also added that the enumeration on trees at another flyover, proposed between Bagh Lingampally and Ramnagar Crossroads is yet to begin.

Environmentalists, unhappy with the loss of green elements, rued how the city has already lost hundreds of trees as part of infrastructure projects such as metro rail, road widening, foot-over bridges, and laying sewer and water lines. Kaajal Maheshwari, Founder, Citizens for Hyderabad said that in this challenging situation of the pandemic, people have realized the importance of good health. Pollution has become the biggest cause due to the cutting of trees in the city. Expressing her anguish she said that it is heart-breaking that even though the value of the trees is well known, officials are still going ahead and axing them.
