Accept money from opposition leaders, vote for BRS: KTR

HYDERABAD: Telangana Government will provide a 'Park & Ride' mode with vast parking spaces at the newly proposed metro rail routes, said MA&UD minister KT Rama Rao on Tuesday.

Hyderabad resident Bipin Saxena tweeted a video of a multi-level parking facility tagging the minister. In his response, KTR said that the primary challenge in Hyderabad was parking. He also suggested that the government chose a few locations near retail centres, such as Secunderabad and the old city, and to develop a solution similar to the one suggested by Bipin Saxena.

While acknowledging that all large cities in the country had parking issues, KTR said, "We're building a couple of multilevel parkings (MLPs) in Hyderabad, but we need many, many more. We will endeavour to include 'Park & Ride' options with ample parking in the newly proposed metro rail routes.

“Vacant Land/Plot owners could also cooperate with local municipal authorities to convert their land into parking and earn a regular income. My team is working on some more ideas. Welcome inputs."

The Telangana Government on Monday announced its expansion plans for the Hyderabad Metro Rail Limited (HMRL), and the State Cabinet approved them at a total projected cost of Rs 69,100 crore. According to KTR, all the proposed metro routes would include multi-level parking facilities.

A multi-level parking complex (MLP) with a capacity of 250 cars and 100 two-wheeler vehicles is slated to open in the Nampally area.

The complex, which is designed to operate without human interference, would have access to contemporary, automated technology and built on a 2,000-square-metre plot belonging to Hyderabad Metro Rail (HMR).

The newly-constructed complex features an ultra-modern building with prefab technology, with 15 floors and a total height of 39.06 metres, including three basement levels.

The MLP facility includes a 10-story structure, with 65 percent of the total floor space dedicated to parking, and the remaining five floors dedicated to commercial use.

The complex will have two movie theatres and a food court, as well as 'German technology sensors' for parking 250 automobiles and 100 motorcycles.

According to reports, the state government also plans to construct similar facilities in crowded areas like Ameerpet, Miyapur, Serilingampally, and Banjara Hills.
