Jammu, May 2: A multi-level car parking facility will be set up within a year in Jammu to ease traffic congestion caused by haphazardly parked vehicles, the state government announced today.
“The multi-level car parking facility in the city will be completed within next one year,” Deputy Chief Minister Nirmal Singh said.
Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti had recently laid foundation stone of the semi-automatic multi-level car parking facility located at Super Bazaar in the city.
To be constructed at a cost of Rs 50.31 crore, the multi-level car parking facility will accommodate 352 vehicles and 164 two-wheelers and is expected to be completed within the next 12 months, he said.
