By August, the Public Works Department intends to finish a 14 km-long solar based cycle track on Outer Ring Road, extending from Mukarba Chowk to Jagatpur Khadar Village. The undertaking guarantees to spare Delhi government up to Rs 3 lakh in power invoice every year.
It is being touted as the longest cycling track in the nation and focuses to empower the utilization of non-mechanized vehicles.
A PWD official said the development of the track has already begun nearby Mukarba Chowk as well as the other end. The project, propelled in September a year ago, was at first expected to be finished by March. But, it stalled out because of operational troubles.
The track will be 2-meter wide on either side of the street and associated with 1.5m-wide pathways. While the undertaking offers numerous favorable circumstances, PWD authorities conceded that there were a few difficulties as well, the essential one is that the territory is inclined to robberies. Authorities said they would place more than 50 CCTV cameras on the stretch to hold against social components under tight restraints.
Each solar board will create around 25 units of power every day. The absolute power produced will be 5MW daily. The solar panels situated at any of the areas will require daylight for 4.7 hours every day to deliver the required power. All streetlights on the stretch will be controlled these sunlight based solar boards. At present, Tata PowerNSE 0.61 % supplies power control for several streetlights on Outer Ring Road, a PWD official said. The surplus power created by the boards will be sold to the grid.
The organization wills to, to recuperate the whole expense of the project in five years. "The stretch was chosen since we are now building up this as a model passage. There is adequate space for the cycle track and pathway as it's generally a new development. There is no greenery or any foundation out and about the side, which should be expelled for the execution of the project," the authority said.
