To address parking and traffic woes in south Delhi’s Adhchini, the SDMC will start a multilevel stack parking in the village by October this year, civic officials said.
According to the South Delhi Municipal Corporation (SDMC) officials, the facility will solve the problem of haphazard parking on streets in the area.
The capacity of the parking facility is 86 cars.
“The construction work of the parking facility is almost complete and it will be ready for use in 15-20 days. We are hoping to inaugurate it by this month end or latest by October. The parking facility will be able to accommodate 86 cars at one time,” a senior SDMC official told PTI.
According to the SDMC officials, stack parking facility allows stacking more than one vehicle in a single parking spot.
Such stack parking system is generally adopted where less space is available. Such parking systems are commonly seen in European countries, the official said.
In November last year, the SDMC has inaugurated Delhi’s first completely automated tower stack parking facility near Green Park metro station. This facility can accommodate 156 cars.
In total, the SDMC has around 119 parking sites in its jurisdiction. Out of 119 parking sites, 113 are surface parking and six are multilevel. Total capacity at these parking sites in the SDMC is 37,143 vehicles.
Besides, the civic body is also constructing four different types of multilevel parking facilities in areas such as Greater Kailash-1 and 2, Amar Colony, Punjabi Bagh.
Officials said that cumulatively these four parking facilities will accommodate 930 cars.
“These four parking facilities will come up in 1.5 years to two years’ time from now,” a SDMC official said.
