PUNE: The much awaited project of automated multilevel car parking, which was initially proposed in 2016 in the Pune Cantonment Board (PCB) area, will be executed in the near future.
There will be two automated multilevel car parking, of these, work on one building has been finalised.
The first parking is on Lloyd Road at the junction of East Street and Coyaji Road, for which a tender was floated. The second parking will come up at the junction of Dr Coyaji Road and Stavely Road.
A senior engineer of PCB said that the project was proposed at the end of 2016 and a consultant was hired. As per the procedure, the board had to send a proposal to the Garrison Engineer (North) for technical suggestions. Thereafter, it was sent to the Southern Command for its approval, which took three months. The tender was earlier floated twice but did not receive a positive response and so a fresh tender was called after three months.
DN Yadav, Chief Executive Officer of PCB, said, “The total cost of the project is around Rs 12.39 crore. It will have 10 floors, in which 180 cars can be parked at a time. Soon, an agreement will be made of 18 months, within which the agency should complete the work.”
Another proposal for a multistorey facility, which will be built at the junction of Dr Coyaji Road and Stavely Road, has been sent for approval last month to Director General Defence Estates (DGDE), New Delhi. The capacity of the car parking is up to 270 cars.
Priyanka Shrigiri, the Vice-President of PCB, said, “Once we get the approval from DGDE, we will call for a tender. Our aim is to complete the project in two years.”
