S Delhi to get parking space for over 400 cars with SDMC's third automated parking lot
New Delhi: In a bid to reduce parking woes being faced in South Delhi, the SDMC has set in motion the construction of Delhi's second puzzle parking system at Feroze Gandhi Road, Lajpat Nagar. With this project, the other puzzle parking system in Adhchini and the tower parking lot in Green Park, the foundation for both of which was laid in the last two days, South Delhi will now be able to accommodate more than 400 cars, providing much-awaited relief to citizens in the area, said SDMC.
The new puzzle parking system will have two modules constructed over an area of 1,170 sqm, expected to cost Rs 27.8 crore. Both these modules combined will be able to accommodate up to 246 cars. While laying the foundation stone for the parking lot in Lajpat Nagar, Delhi BJP President Manoj Twari expressed his confidence in SDMC to initiate more such new-age initiatives, keeping in line with the new India that Prime Minister Narendra Modi has envisioned.
The Commissioner, Punit Kumar Goel, who was also present at the foundation laying event added, "The city is looking forward to using these convenient and safe parking spaces."
"The puzzle parking systems will only require one pilot each to operate it, while the tower parking lot will be fully automated, reducing the operating cost to large extent. In addition, such automated parking solutions are expected to result in retrieval times as less as three minutes and reduced pollution," said SDMC Mayor Narendra Chawla, who was also present on the occasion. All three parking lots are set to finish construction in the next six months.
