During a meeting with the civic body officials, State Municipal Administration Minister SP Velumani said that the multi-level car parking would be inaugurated by Chief Minister Edappadi K Palaniswami during the second week of October.

 “The project has been implemented under the Smart City Mission at a cost of Rs 40.79 crore. The facility will house around 500 two-wheelers and 200 four-wheelers. The facility is fully automated,” he said.

 Once completed the multi-level car parking in T Nagar would be the first such facility in the city constructed by the Chennai Corporation. The facility is coming up on 1,522 sqm land on Theagaraya Road near Pondy Bazaar.

 The civic body had commenced the construction work of the multilevel parking in February 2018. But, the works were halted due to COVID-19 induced lockdown.

 “The works are almost completed and the remaining works will be completed within 10 days,” a Chennai Corporation official said.

 When asked the official about the charges collected from the vehicle owners to use the facility, the official said that the charges are yet to be finalised and a proposal for fixing charges has been submitted to the Commissioner. The multi-level car parking has two underground floors, ground floor and six floors.

 It may be noted that the civic body has a proposal to construct another multi-level car parking in Sivagnanam Street in T Nagar and selected more than 35 locations to implement off-street parking projects by constructing multi-level car parking facilities.

 Meanwhile, Velumani, during the meeting has instructed the civic officials to start the works for creating urban space on the banks of Buckingham Canal by providing children play equipment, urban forest using Miyawaki method and other facilities for 2.1 kilometres from Kasturibai MRTS station to Thiruvanmiyur MRTS station.
