Hyderabad: People dreading to go to the Old City for want of parking space would soon be able to park their cars at Nampally and head along. And those who wish to buy products that are sold at Lad Bazaar and Charminar will also be able to buy the products at upcoming ultra-modern Multi-Level Parking (MLP) near the Nampally metro rail station. A state-of-the-art, air-conditioned complex comprising 15 floors, 10 floors (10,000 sq ft each) for parking and remaining five floors for commercial space will be completed in nine months said Hyderabad Metro Rail Limited (HMRL) managing director NVS Reddy.
The MLP complex is coming up in half an acre at a cost of Rs 55 cr to Rs 60 cr. Developed in PPP mode, a joint venture- BHARI Infra Pvt Ltd and RCM Infrastructure Ltd is using PALIS parking system from Germany. Harikishen Reddy, director BHARI Infra Pvt Ltd said, “Once a person leaves the car, it will find a place for itself and the shuttle picks up the car, by lifting the car tyres as few inches and places it onto a transporter. The Parking system does not touch and other part of the car body, therefore, cars would be safe. The parking system turns the car without any human intervention and orients it to be picked up by the parking system.” The building would be constructed with prefab technology consisting. Ten floors would be used for parking and five floors for commercial purpose.
Novum, (meaning new) the automatic parking facility can accommodate 250 cars in three basements and seven above ground floors apart from accommodating more than 100 two-wheelers manually. PALIS system delivers cars in such a way that one can drive out of the complex without reversing the car. At the entry gate, 360-degree images along with number plate of the vehicle would be captured and stored to resolve disputes, if any, at the exit. The parking fee would be decided at a later date, but it would be affordable and charged for the first two hours and a top up fee after the prescribed time, said Mr Reddy.
The whole complex would be air-conditioned and have the potential to tap solar and wind energy. Smart cards will be given to users for parking and retrieving cars. For regular users, RFIDs would be provided for barrier free parking. Speaking about the uniqueness of the PALIS system, Bhavana, project director said, “Even if half the system is shut down, the entire parking system would still work and once the building is up, we would decide on the quantum of wind and solar energy to be tapped.”
