  Rs 10 CRORE RAILWAY SPORTS COMPLEX  

Sports Complex
The Twin Cities of Hyderabad and Secunderabad will soon have an international standard sports complex being set up by the South Central Railway. Coming up in Secunderabad, near the existing sports complex, the new complex would approximately cost rupees ten crore. When the new complex gets ready, Hyderabad can host any international match of any sport. Although this sports complex is being especially built to encourage excellence in sports for the railway employees, it will also be used to hold international meets and large competitions.

Location & Orientation

The site near Rail Nilayam is an ideal location for the Sports Complex because of its easy accessibility from the railway station, bus stop and the airport. And Hyderabad is well connected to the rest of India and the world. The stadium and other structures are designed keeping in mind the direction of the breeze and the stadium's North-South orientation.

The main entrance to the new complex will be from the east so that the cricket stadium, the indoor hall and the swimming pool become easily accessible. A network of new roads and pedestrian walkways are also designed.

The cricket stadium will be at the North East of the complex. It will accommodate 5000 spectators. It will consist of a pavilion, office, computer room, medical room, press room and a VIP lounge. Grand stands on either side of the pavilion with entrance and exits have been provided. The design of the cricket stadium is approved by the International Cricket Council (ICC).

The multipurpose indoor stadium is to be between the cricket stadium and the swimming pool. It will have a total playing area of 45 x 25 meters. The building will have two floors with facilities for offices, computer, conference, press, medical, locker rooms, etc. A provision for seating 100 VIPs and 1000 spectators is made.

Other than this, the South Central Railway Authority proposes to build an international standard Swimming pool, an Athletic stadium and Sports hostel. The Athletic stadium will be of 8 lanes each 1.25 meter wide. Necessary installations for the high jump, throwing events and pole vault have already been designed. The Sports Hostel will have three floors with kitchen and dining rooms to cater to the needs of 200 sports persons at a time.

With Malleswari as the source of inspiraton and with international level facilities at this new sports complex, it now remains to be seen whether better sportspersons would come up in the state as well as on the national scene.
