MCH to inaugurate Sanathnagar swimming pool shortly

HYDERABAD: Buoyed with the overwhelming response from children, the Municipal Corporation of Hyderabad (MCH) is all set to inaugurate a swimming pool at Sanathnagar within 15 days.

In addition to three swimming pools in the twin cities, the corporation has taken-up construction of three more pools at Sanathnagar, Vijaynagar Colony near Mehdipatnam and Amberpet with an outlay of more than Rs. 3 crores.

"We are planning to open Sanathnagar pool for the convenience of people from this summer only to cope-up with heavy rush at other pools in Secunderabad, Moghalpura and Ameerpet," MCH Director of Sports S.R. Prem Raj said, adding that pending works would be completed within a week.

At Vijaynagar pool, a filter plant was already built and the remaining works would be completed within two months. A sport complex was also developed near the pool for playing indoor games. However, works at Amberpet pool have begun recently, Mr. Prem Raj said.
