BENGALURU: The Department of Horticulture has decided to construct a glasshouse in Cubbon Park, near the Central Library at Ringwood Circle.

During the flower show organised by the department on Children’s Day last month, it rained heavily and the visitors had to disperse due to lack of shelters in the vicinity. To address the problem, Rajeev Chala, Principal Secretary of the department, called for a meeting and they decided to build a glasshouse.

The department has already called for the tender for the construction. A blueprint has already been given to the PWD engineers, according to which the glasshouse will be spacious with four entrances/exits.

There are six CCTV cameras in Cubbon Park at present. For security purposes, 40 more will be installed at various points of the park soon. Control rooms, where the video footages will be monitored by officers, will also be set up.

“The construction is expected to take close to nine months. We will do our best to get it ready by next Independence Day. Two more glasshouses will be built in the city in the coming years,” said Mahantesh Murgod, Deputy Director, Horticulture Department.
