GVMC Vizag proposed Multi Level Car Parking (MLCPs) to address parking needs

Greater Vizag Municipal Corporation(GVMC) authorities have proposed three specific parking locations on Beach Road to ease clearing parking problems. Such a facility, besides reducing the congestion on the roads, will provide safe passage for pedestrians, as many pavements at busy junctions are being used for parking.

The MLCPs, as per initial plans, can be built on BOT mode with support from Andhra University and Visakhapatnam Urban Development Authority. Even though the civic body has proposed these facilities close to busy junctions there is  no adequate space for building the structures.

The authorities are negotiating with Andhra University for providing space. They propose to develop such multilevel parking places on PPP mode by obtaining land from the varsity. They are considering operating the places either on revenue sharing basis or providing alternate site for the varsity.

Vizagites opine that the move would reduce parking  problems  on busy streets.

Is it going to be the First steps towards Vizag smart city?
