SDMC to build Delhi's first automated puzzle car parking in Adhchini village
New Delhi: SDMC on Monday said that it will commission Delhi's first automated puzzle car parking system in South Delhi's Adhchini village in the next six months. BJP National Vice-President, Shyam Jaju while laying the foundation for the parking lot said that such initiatives will go a long way in reducing parking hardships faced by citizens. He added that these parking lots can be adapted for both urban and rural areas because of the land-area optimisation that they employ.
The Adhchini puzzle parking lot will have two modules built over an area of 310 sqm. One of which will have a 6x6 grid, with six cars each at the first five levels, and one at the top level. The other module will have a 5x6 grid, with four cars each at the first five levels, and five cars at the top level. The two modules can accommodate a combined total of 56 cars. The parking lot is to be operated by a pilot who will be responsible for parking and retrieving cars, with a retrieval time as less as three minutes.
SDMC Mayor Narendra Chawla said that the city faces two major problems, one being pollution and the other being insufficient parking space. He stressed that such initiatives will solve both problems by eliminating the amount of fuel that is burnt while finding a parking spot and optimising a small land-area to accommodate the maximum number of vehicles. The project is likely to cost Rs 7.55 crore.
