City has country's biggest high-tech car park

After several delays, national capital’s third and the country’s biggest automated multi-level car parking was formally inaugurated on Tuesday.

The state-of-art parking facility at the Baba Kharak Singh Marg in Central Delhi, with a parking capacity of 1,408 vehicles, is likely to mitigate the parking woes of motorists visiting Connaught Place, Gole Market, Bengali Market and Hanuman Mandir.

The 11-floor parking lot was inaugurated by Union Home Minister P Chidambaram and Delhi Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit. “This facility will emerge on the Delhi skyline as a symbol of modern-day India on the road to global lifestyle,” Chidambaram said, after inaugurating the facility.

Sheila Dikshit said about 1,000 vehicles were being registered in Delhi everyday and about 15 lakh people commute to commercial complexes and government offices in the NDMC area. She hoped the facility would solve the problems of the motorists visiting the area.

The parking, Capitol Point, is located on Baba Kharak Singh Marg between the Rajiv Chowk metro station and the Shivaji Stadium station of Airport Metro. It is designed by New Delhi Municipal Council (NDMC) and builder company DLF under PPP mode.

Spread over a total area of 65,504 square metre the parking has 11 floors, including basement which is used as the parking bay. “The ground and the first floor would have a total of 28 commercial units, while the second to ninth floors are dedicated for parking cars,” an NDMC official said.

“The parking has lifts, palettes and computerised control systems and the driver will get full details from the information board. The parking information of the vehicle will be recorded on a camera. The driver will drive the car to the channel palette from where the machine will use the lifts to park the car in an empty space,” the official added.
