Measure aimed at minimising inconvenience to traders: DC Srinagar

SRINAGAR: Government on Wednesday allocated four more parking slots in the city centre.
The space has been created at Sangarmal, Srinagar, Astro turf TRC, and STRC yard Lala Rukh. This will be in addition to the existing spaces.
An official said that another parking space at old motor garages will be thrown open in next two weeks.
The interim parking spaces were identified during Deputy Commissioner Srinagar ShahidIqbalChoudhary’s visit to the city centre Wednesday. The visit and the measure follow repeated appeals in this regard to the district administration.
These spaces can accommodate nearly 500 cars including around 200 at Sangarmal compound, around 150 at Old SMG compound, around 60 at Turf Ground parking and around 60 at SRTC Yard.
Three of these spaces will be available to traders for parking from January 2 whereas the remaining one at Old SMG compound will be available from January 10.
The parking spaces will be provided at special rates to traders. Shoppers will also be allowed to park their vehicles at these spaces for limited periods of time.
DC said the administration understands the parking inconvenience traders in the area face and that this measure is aimed at minimising this inconvenience.
