Delhi’s “first” fully automated stack parking with a capacity of 136 vehicles was inaugurated by Union minister RK Singh and Lt Governor Anil Baijal near the Green Park Metro station on Wednesday.
South Delhi commissioner Gyanesh Bharti said the 39.50-metre tower parking was constructed on an 878 square metre plot with a cost of ₹18.20 crore. There is an automated ticket dispenser with a boom barrier at the entry and exit of the parking and the charges will be as per SDMC notified rates of ₹20 per hour, ₹100 for 24 hours, and monthly day pass of ₹1,200 and day-night for ₹2,000, the commissioner said.
He said the multilevel parking comprised four towers, each having 17 levels. Each tower could hold a total of 34 vehicles, including eight SUVs and 26 sedans. The multilevel parking is also equipped with a public waiting area, babysitting room and washrooms, the statement said.
South Delhi mayor Anamika said the tower parking will control pollution and also minimise quarrels over parking of vehicles. The possibilities to use the facade of tower parking for advertising is also being explored, she said.
