A multistorey parking space will be constructed under the Smart City Plan in Imphal area, Manipur Chief Minister N Biren Singh said on Friday.
"No permanent parking will be allowed in the Thangal and Paona Keithel (bazaar) area," Biren told reporters while inaugurating a public parking space in the heart of Imphal.
The new parking space to be constructed for the residents of Thangal keithel at Naga Nullah in Imphal was alloted to ease the traffic congestion in the market area.
For the residents of Paona keithel, a temporary parking space will be allotted near the Johnstone school and will be inaugurated soon, Biren said.
Biren appealed the vehicles owners of the Thangal Bazaar area to park their vehicles in the parking area as allotted by the MAHUD.
The new parking space at Naga Nullah can accommodate around 116 four wheeler vehicles and a total of 106 vehicle owners have been identified for the Thangal keithel area whose vehicles would be parked in the allotted space, Biren said.
Shopkeepers who reside in nearby places should be dropped and picked up by drivers or family members to their respective shops, he added.
