Tankbund has been on every Hyderabadis lips in the past few weeks as this location has turned into a fun and happy street for the people on weekends instead of a bottleneck traffic and rash driving due to the vast and speed breaker more minor road.
Moreover, the whole recreation time on this street has been possible due to the diversion of the Traffic Police from 5 pm-10 pm via Lower Tank Bund. The people have craved for Tank Bund to be a location where they can come with family and friends and spend some quality time while gazing at the beautiful Buddha Statue in the middle of this historic tank.
However, the popularity of this location had dropped until this year when the State Government revamped the entire stretch and made it a family-friendly environment. The whole plan has been received so much appreciation that the first Sunday of Tankbund being open only for walking and spending time saw a massive footfall of families.
All those present during the evening were so pleased to find the iconic location so friendly without any pollution or vehicular movement. Pictures of all kinds are going viral on various social media platforms as people were pleased with this new development and wanted to amplify this to the people who could come and enjoy a good time.
The whole movement of the government and police to make this place vehicle-free and a leisure location began when a netizen asked the Minister of Municipal Administration and Urban Development (MAUD) KTR to have something like this at Tank Bund and few other areas. While this request is now a reality, the State Government will push in more beautification works to make Tank Bund, people's favorite.
