CDA to set up multi-purpose parking facility in big centres


* CDA chief says parking of vehicles in busy shopping centres to be restricted

Staff Report

ISLAMABAD: The Capital Development Authority (CDA) on Tuesday announced that multi-purpose electronic parking facilities would be established in all major shopping centres of the federal capital. “All the major markets of the city would have separate parking places in near future to facilitate the traders and the visitors simultaneously,” CDA Chairman Engineer Farkhand Iqbal said while visiting the under-construction Model E-Parking Facility in Jinnah Super Market.

The Modern E-Parking Facility is being developed in Jinnah Super Market as a model, which would be replicated in other markets of the city. He also directed the construction company to erect state-of-the-art cabins for the operation of the parking facility. He was apprised that a control room would be established in Jinnah Super Market, which would help monitor parking lots in the city.

The CDA chairman said that major markets would provide hassle-free facilities for pedestrians, as the parking of vehicles in the busy shopping centres would be restricted. The chairman said that they want sustainable solution to the residents and traders of the capital alike and all possible measures would be taken to make Islamabad model for the other cities of the country. “We will focus on provision of spacious parking adjacent to markets, along with improving the sewerage, cleanliness and environment of the city,” Iqbal said.

The CDA chief called upon the residents of the city to fulfil their civic responsibilities by protecting the facilities provided to them, especially the beautiful environment in shape of landscaping and lush-green parks. He said that a target-oriented approach has been adopted to resolve the issues of the residents on priority basis.

Engineer Farkhand Iqbal said that the parking facilities would be set up on the public-private partnership basis to overcome the problems of traffic creating mess in the city. He said that the authority would remove the encroachments in the markets as well.
