The Pak Banker - - NATIONAL -

Cap­i­tal Devel­op­ment Au­thor­ity (CDA) would con­struct five multi level park­ing plazas at busiest points of the city to help over­com­ing park­ing woes and eas­ing traf­fic pres­sure in

the city. The park­ing plazas would be con­structed in Blue Area and other busiest ar­eas of the city. CDA had al­lo­cated a sum of Rs 256.057 mil­lion for con­struct­ing park­ing plazas dur­ing fi­nan­cial years 201415 and 2015-16. Ac­cord­ing to breakup, Rs 169.922 mil­lion had been al­lo­cated for con­struct­ing park­ing plazas dur­ing 2014-15 and Rs 86.135 mil­lion for com­plet­ing the task dur­ing 2015-16.

The plan­ning and devel­op­ment depart­ment Cap­i­tal Devel­op­ment Au­thor­ity (CDA) has al­most fi­nalised the plan for con­struct­ing five Park­ing Plazas in var­i­ous ar­eas of the city. Park­ing plazas are im­per­a­tive not only to over­come the park­ing prob­lems but also to counter in­creas­ing car­lift­ing in­ci­dents in the fed­eral cap­i­tal. Traf­fic prob­lems and car thefts can be over­come to a great ex­tent by con­struct­ing proper multi level car park­ing plazas. Park­ing plazas would be con­structed near G-6, Pa­rade Ground in south of Metro Sta­tion, F-7 Stock Ex­change south of metro sta­tion, F-7 north of Sev­enth Av­enue, F-8, Pak­istan In­sti­tute of Med­i­cal Sciences (PIMS) Hospital and F-8, Ketch­ery Cross­ing.Plazas would help eas­ing traf­fic con­ges­tion. Short­age of park­ing space in Blue Area and other ma­jor mar­kets of the

city in­clud­ing Aab­para, Su­per, Jin­nah Su­per and Karachi Com­pany has not only ag­gra­vated traf­fic woes but also in­creased car-lift­ing in­ci­dents in the fed­eral cap­i­tal, police and CDA of­fi­cials told APP that

food courts would also be con­structed near these plazas, ac­cord­ing to CDA, sur­vey had also been com­pleted for pin point­ing suit­able places for con­struct­ing park­ing plazas. It mer­its men­tion­ing here that CDA has al­ready con­structed two multi level Pub­lic Car Park­ing in Jin­nah Su­per Mar­ket (F-7 Markaz) with the ca­pac­ity to park 440 ve­hi­cles.
