Plan to tackle parking congestion to be implemented soon

New Delhi: Problem of traffic, parking congestion, and air pollution has been persistent in Delhi, keeping that in view, South Delhi Municipal Corporation (SDMC) has approved a parking area management plan to tackle the situation in different areas.

Speaking to Millennium Post Prem Shankar Jha, SDMC Deputy Commissioner said, "A concrete plan for parking is coming up in whole Delhi." He added that the first implementation of the parking plan will be done at Lajpat Nagar-3.

The intense work has been ordered after the Supreme Court's order on the implementation of a comprehensive clean air action plan of Delhi, which requires a parking policy as a vehicle-restraint measure to reduce congestion and pollution.

"The plan has been made and is thoroughly researched to tackle the situation. We have taken consensus from Delhi and traffic police, along with RWA, and we have already started working on it," added Jha.

The first plan of Lajpat Nagar will be implemented by December 31, while the rest of the Delhi will see the execution by January 31. "The court has given us four months to finish the project," said Jha.

Meanwhile, RWA has been ordered to finish all research related work by October 31. Explaining the issue, Jha said, "Market parked cars go to residence and residence parked cars go to market, this creates quite a confusion. So, the spill over from the side needs to be stopped."

On the other hand, space for pedestrians is also being looked into. "Space for rickshaws, cycles needs to be also looked into. Hence, a plan will also include that," added Jha.

Also, enough space for movement of emergency vehicles is also being created.

"There are roughly 60 to 70 plans for the entire city," Jha added.
