Delhiites are no strangers to crowded roads, packed streets and a lack of parking space. In fact, the lack of parking space often paves the way for unwarranted practices and is a hassle in general. Going to a market is always a chore as finding a parking spot can be a tricky challenge but soon, that's going to be a thing of the past.

We've got our first look at the future of parking in Delhi- the tower parking system. This tower at Green Park aims to simplify the entire process of finding parking at a crowded marketplace so that you can shop without a care in the world.

What's the update?

On Thursday, Delhi's first tower parking system was inaugurated with much fanfare at Green Park. This completely modern facility consists of a massive 17 storied steel structure that will automatically place cars in parking spots within the tower.

As of now, only a part of the tower has been inaugurated as part of a trial run. Efforts to get the other levels of the tower functional are also underway and it's only a matter of time, that the 4 parking towers will be accessible to the public.

What was the need?

Illegal parking causes traffic jams

One may ask what exactly was the need of these four towers and we only have to look at the numbers to know the importance of this development. In Delhi, there are over 75 lakh operational vehicles, most of which have to be parked somewhere due to lack of parking space.

Usually, parking on the side of roads is rampant but that in itself has a whole lot of issues attached to it. With the towers, however, the entire process of finding and finally parking your vehicle has become a very simple task.

The towers themselves have been designed with ease of use and parking in mind. In total, there is space for about 136 vehicles in just one of the towers. The goal is to have the first four floors, to accommodate big vehicles such as SUVs, while the others will be for hatchbacks and sedans, which are more in number.

Knock Knock

When it comes to parking in Delhi, there are a lot of issues that need to be addressed. The new and innovative tower parking infrastructure is something that will certainly herald a change in parking habits all over Delhi. Though only a part of it is open for the public now, we hope to see the rest of the towers becoming functional very soon.
