Trial run of laser show begins today

By Our Staff Reporter

HYDERABAD, JAN. 13. The Hyderabad Urban Development Authority (HUDA) is launching trial runs of its spectacular laser show near Lumbini Park from Friday.

The facility developed by a German company, Laser Land, in association with an Indian company, Premier Fountains, at a cost of Rs. 13 crores is complete except for the exteriors, facades and the commercial complex.

First of its kind

The 2.5-acre area under the control of Tourism Department was handed over to the Buddha Purnima Project Authority for the laser show facility.

The facility adjacent to Lumbini Park is described as first of its kind in the country with an integration of theatre, music, dance and laser shows. "As the plush interiors with a seating capacity of 2,000 are ready, we want to get on with the trial runs and open it to public instead of waiting for completion of the exteriors," says the HUDA Vice-Chairman G. Ashok Kumar. An amphitheatre has also been added making it ideal for product launches and other such events, he said.

The entrance to the laser show would be through the Lumbini Park, which was recently revamped with new attractions like water cascade and children's play equipment at a cost of Rs. 3 crores. The 30-minute laser show would be priced at Rs. 25 per ticket, he said.

Telugu Talli flyover

The HUDA, which completed the Telugu Talli flyover and the median on the approach roads says no work was pending from its side. Though the MCH was yet to provide the service road on the lower tank bund and widen the Mint Compound road as insisted by the traffic police, the HUDA authorities feel the flyover could be opened at least to take some traffic pressure off the route connecting Liberty with Secunderabad.
