This article was published on : September 10, 2019
National Transport Planning and Research Centre (Natpac) is set to prepare a proper parking plan on main roads without disrupting the vehicular traffic. Based on the directive of the city traffic police, the national highway wing of the Public Works Department (PWD) has sent a letter to Natpac to conduct a detailed study into parking on city roads, mainly on the Kesavadasapuram-Pulimoodu stretch of MG Road. The traffic police are seeking a report on how designated parking slots could be introduced on road. At present, the city corporation has introduced paid parking facility on several stretches, with wardens appointed to regulate parking and to collect fee.
Natpac has submitted a detailed proposal and is awaiting a formal work order to launch the study, which they are planning to complete in two weeks.
