HYDERABAD: To create adequate parking spaces in Greater Hyderabad limits, the GHMC is planning to construct multi-level automatic parking complexes soon. 

Few Indian cities like Delhi, Mumbai and other cities have such automated multilevel parking facility and soon Hyderabad is going to have such facilities.

GHMC has identified few places for constructing these multilevel parking complexes. They include Saraswathi Colony in Uppal, Charminar, Ashoknagar, Chandanagar, Old Bowenpally, Malkajigiri (Malkajgiri to Neredment), Shanker Veedhi behind old jail.   

GHMC officials told Express that tenders would be floated shortly inviting agencies for construction of multilevel parking complexes soon. 

A four wheeler would be charged Rs 10 to Rs 15 per hour for using the facility. The ground and first floors of the multistoreyed complex will have vegetable markets, retail outlets and restaurants. The rest would be dedicated for parking. Based on the availability of space, 300 to 400 cars can be parked.

The car parking will have  lifts, pallets and computerised control systems. The automatic system saves time spent in searching for empty parking slots and time-spent in searching for the parked car, officials added.

Once on the parking floor, the car pallet is positioned by the computerised system for optimal utilisation of space. The pallets move forward, backward, left and right to allow the cars to be moved towards the lift for retrieval.

The advantage of automated parking facility is that it requires less building volume and ground space as compared to conventional parking lots.

Due to lack of parking space, cars are being parked on roads causing traffic congestion. Multilevel parking complexes should be made mandatory in city centres that have several high rise commercial complexes. Automated car parks rely on the technology that is used for mechanical handling and document retrieval.
