Now that the removal of the abandoned vehicles have been completed, the GCC would focus on strengthening the parking management system. It is learnt that GCC would be increasing the parking lots on the major roads belonging to 200 wards in Chennai.
After the civic body identifies the parking lots along the major roads in the commercial places in October, the number of parking slots in Chennai would be increasing from 5300.
There is no proper coordination between the Revenue dept and the Engineering dept. As a result, the GCC has not been able to compile a list of street parking spaces. It is true that most of the 15 GCC zones have delayed the compilation of parking spaces.
Review of parking management initiatives:
On Tuesday, Chennai Mayor R. Priya and GCC Commissioner Mr. J. Radhakrishnan took part in a meeting and reviewed the parking management initiatives. Point to be noted is that the GCC has started removing abandoned vehicles and cleared spaces for the traffic movement and for the improved parking of vehicles. On more roads, each license inspector of Revenue Dept has been asked to identify parking spaces but the work was not over due to lack of proper coordination among the GCC engineers at the zonal level.
