City to get first tower parking in 3 months

AT GREEN PARK: Will Accommodate 136 Cars

New Delhi:

The city’s first tower parking at Green Park will become fully functional in the next three months. South Delhi Municipal Corporation (SDMC) officials said that work is in progress at the site and the core structure of one of the two parking towers has been made.

“We are making the finishing wall of the first tower while the base for the second tower is under construction. The parking lot will be open for public in October. The facility will have two towers up to 16 levels each and each tower will accommodate 68 cars. The operation and maintenance of tower parking will be given to the concessionaire. The parking lot is constructed on a limited area of just 878 square metres,” said a SDMC official.

The civic agency is simultaneously working on puzzle parking at Lajpat Nagar, which will be open for public in December. “Cars will be parked here using a lift so there is no need for constructing ramps, walking areas and other facilities. The steel structures can also be dismantled if needed and installed at another place. These structures have comprehensive fire safety provisions too,” said the official.

On Wednesday, SDMC mayor Sunita Kangra reviewed the pace of work of the underconstruction puzzle parking at Lajpat Nagar. She asked the officers concerned to expedite it and commission the parking at the earliest.

“It will take less than three minutes per person to park the vehicle at these lots. With commissioning of the parking, the customers and traders of Lajpat Nagar Central Market will benefit and their parking woes will be over under a permanent and practical solution. The capacity of the parking is 264 cars. Sufficient staff will be deployed for parking cars and taking the vehicles out from the parking,” she said.

Vertical parking lots are most appropriate in congested markets and populated colonies, as per officials.

“Since there is limited space available here, these parking spaces are appropriate. It requires just 1.5 square metres to park one car in comparison with 30 square metres required in a conventional parking lot,” said Kangra.

The mayor also visited neighbouring Kotla Mubarakpur ward and instructed officers to remove vehicles parked around the corporation store room.
