KOCHI: The burgeoning parking woes of commuters in the city might get a relief once the automobile parking policy under the Jawaharlal Nehru Urban Renewal Mission (JNNURM) is implemented.
The Local Self Government Department (LSGD) has approved the policy and it has directed the local bodies in the State including the Kochi Corporation to initiate steps to implement the policy recommendations.
According to officials of the LSGD, the Kochi Corporation will become the single agency to coordinate and implement the vehicle parking policy in the city. The policy has suggested that the use of public land for parking of private vehicles should be done on the ‘pay and park' principle.
The corporation will identify and designate parking areas for taxis and autorickshaws. Such parking stands will not be located at road junctions and will be off the carriageway at a minimum distance of 75 metres. Location of the existing taxi, autorickshaw and lorry/van stands should be reviewed and re-designated with the consent of the Regional Transport Authority, if required.
