West Bengal will soon inaugurate “India’s first” ‘Tyre Park,’ where artworks constructed from scrap, trash, and faulty parts will be on exhibit, a state minister said. Declaring that it is a unique idea and not seen here in the country, the official said the park’s idea is waste can be converted into art.
WBTC managing director Rajanvir Kapur stated, “No scrap material can be labeled as waste; it can be reused and converted into an art form. The West Bengal Transport Corporation will launch this Tyre Park soon.”
Scrap tyres, lying as waste in various bus depots, have been reworked and converted to colorful shapes by the in-house team of WBTC, he spoke.
The Tyre Park will be built at the Esplanade area, and will have a small cafe where people can sit, relax and enjoy the craftsmanship made from tyres, Kapur told.
“It will be an island of peace in an otherwise very crowded area,” the official stated.
The date of launch of the Tyre Park will be declared shortly, Kapur added.
