Hyderabad: Five more multi-level car-parking complexes will come up in the city soon, each at Chikkadapally, Punjagutta, Ameerpet, Begumbazar and Ferozguda.
Replying to a question of D Sudheer Reddy (Cong) during the question hour in the State Legislative Assembly on Wednesday, Minister for Municipal Administration and Urban Development Anam Ramanarayana Reddy said these complexes would come up in public-private partnership mode. The Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation was also conducting studies on constructing parking slots. A consultant, ILF, had been engaged for the purpose, he said.
Regarding the existing parking areas at 197 places in the city being maintained by the GHMC, a decision would be taken soon whether they should be handed over to private parties, the Minister added.
Earlier, revenue came down drastically when 125 parking zones out of 197 were handed over to private agencies. However, the revenues improved after the parking lots were allotted to Dwcra groups for maintenance, he said.
