Making art out of scarp has always been better than being irresponsible and dumping it on the roads and rivers. And Kolkata is just another city that shows us how to do it.
Kolkata’s West Bengal State Transport Department has inaugurated the county’s first-ever tyre park at the Esplanade Bus Depot where everything is made out of waste and discarded tyres.
“The idea behind the park is that waste can be converted into art. Nothing is waste and can be art and that is a message with which a unique Tyre Park is coming up in Kolkata,” said an official.
Yet to be inaugurated, the tyre park seems to be inspired by Delhi’s Waste to Wonder Theme Park, which entertains replicas of the seven wonders of the world and made out of waste metal and is one of the most famous places to visit in Delhi.
“It will be an island of peace in an otherwise very crowded area” said MD, WBTC, Rajanvir Singh Kapur about the upcoming park.
The idea behind the park is to bring the discarded tyres into use, which, or else, would rot lying somewhere or would be burned causing pollution. This way of bringing the tyres into use allows the creators to use their creativity without hurting their pocket.
The authorities said the park will also cater to the public with a small café, music and also provide them with a quaint space to sit and experience the park in an otherwise busy areas of the city.
