Parking: multi-level dilemma - lessons from multi-level parking in Delhi

CSE releases findings on parking in Sarojini Nagar and the lessons from it. Says without a clear strategy, expensive parking structures can neither reduce parking chaos nor parking demand. CSE survey shows car users will shift to other modes of transport only if they are forced to pay three times more parking charges. Effective parking policy needed – Delhi uses up 10 per cent of its land just for parking; will need land the size of over 300 football fields to accommodate future parking demand. CSE calls for end to parking subsidies, immediate parking pricing reforms, effectively high parking charges, stringent enforcement and high penalties for violations.
