42 sensor-based 'smart parking' spaces to be operational in Kanpur soon!

The first 'smart parking' system in Kanpur is set to be operational at the Kargil Park, within two days.

'Smart City' Kanpur is all set for an upgrade with 42 'smart parking' spaces across town, with sensors imported from Barcelona, Spain. The advanced instruments will detect the number of vehicles in a parking lot and the availability of vacant spaces. This will roll out a system of digital ease for the people, enabling them to pre-book parking places while avoiding traffic or chaos, due to unavailability at a later point.

Civic management receives boost with digital sensor parking lots

The 'Smart Parking' initiative was inducted under the 'Smart City Mission' about a year and a half ago, when Mahendra Tech Company won a tender to build 42 sensor parking lots at a budget of ₹5 crores. Out of these, 29 parking spaces will be dedicated to two-wheeler vehicles while the remaining 13 will be for 4-wheeler automobiles.

The project is in its last leg and work at all centres, except for Phool Bagh, has been completed. Reportedly, Kanpur's first such operation is set to begin at the Kargil Park, within two days.
