Multi-level parking lots proposed in new Gurgaon traffic plan

March 1st, 2007

Gurgaon planners have proposed setting up multi-level parking lots at three main city areas short on parking space.

A multi-level parking lot will come up near the mini Secretariat, the Sector-29 commercial complex and on Kaman Sarai on the Sohna road where traffic tends to get choked during rush hour.

Plans to resolve traffic congestion were finalised at a recent Haryana Urban Development Authority (HUDA) meeting held under the chairmanship of HUDA Administrator S P Gupta. The meeting was attended by Rakesh Gupta, Deputy Commissioner, Gurgaon, Hanif Qureshi, SSP, Gurgaon and other senior officials from the Municipal Committee and Estate Office.

At the meeting, it was proposed to set up four bus depots of five acres each. A 20-acre inter-state bus terminal will also be set up at Panchgaon in Gurgaon. Seventy two bus shelters will also be constructed.

Temporary parking sites near congested areas will also be set up. The congested Jail Market near Sohna Chowk and near Aggarsain Chowk will be shifted to another location immediately. The road to Sohna and to Mini Secretariat from Rajiv Chowk will also be widened. The lighting on city roads will also be improved immediately.

Many new roads will be constructed, including one from Sector 15 to Delhi, and other roads will be widened.

Trees located in the middle of roads will be removed as they are posing a hazard to traffic.

The congested auto markets in Kaman Sarai and other areas will be shifted to one location in Sector 10.

An exclusive transport nagar, which will function as a parking bay for buses, trucks and other vehicles, will also be set up. Food, water and toilets will be available there.

Currently, HUDA has four authorised paid parking lots in Sector 29, Sector 14 and Sector 40. Paid parking lots exist in areas like DLF City, Ansals and Sushant Lok but these are run by private parties.
