NMC to construct puzzle parking instead of rotary


Nashik: Nashik Municipal Corporation had earlier proposed to construct rotary parking on Build, Operate and Transfer basis. As there was no response to it, puzzle parking will be constructed now. It will be constructed at 7 major locations in the city and parking problem of 300 vehicles will be resolved.
Population of the city is rising every day. Besides this following expansion of residential colonies, there is difficulty in finding open spaces. As there is no parking facility at earlier constructions, parking problem there remain as it is. As vehicles are parked on roads, traffic jams happen frequently.
The NMC will construct parking zones on BOT basis as a measure for this. Earlier, there was proposal of rotary parking. Tender process was floated for this, but as there was no response to it, preference is being given to option of puzzle parking. NMC and state government will spend Rs. 5 crore each for this.
Accordingly, puzzle parking will be constructed at the district collectorate campus, court campus, Satpur, New Nashik, Nashik Road and Gangapur Road. As there is facility of parking of 30-40 vehicles, NMC aims to resolve parking problem of 300 vehicles. If this experiment is successful, NMC is thinking to construct the puzzle parking at other places in future.
