Navi Mumbai to address parking crisis with 56 smart parking lots

As the number of vehicles continues to rise, the city of Navi Mumbai is facing a major parking crisis, leading the Navi Mumbai Municipal Corporation (NMMC) to take action. The corporation has planned to construct 56 state-of-the-art parking lots in an effort to address the growing demand for parking spaces.

Parking in Navi Mumbai has become a significant issue, particularly in older housing colonies, where there is a noticeable shortage of parking spaces. Every year, the city sees an increase of 40,000 vehicles, and the NMMC aims to tackle this problem by building parking lots in areas with high vehicle density.

The NMMC has sought to acquire 111 plots from the CIDCO (City and Industrial Development Corporation) to build the new parking lots and will also utilise street parking facilities. The corporation is working on smart multi-level parking projects, making the best use of limited space. The majority of the proposed parking lots will be located in Vashi, followed by Nerul and Belapur.

The corporation is also formulating street parking plans, such as earmarking one line for parking in areas with three lanes. Plots for parking are being developed near the railway station in Vashi, in CBD Belapur sector 15, and in other locations. The use of technology will play a crucial role in these parking lots, as online booking facilities will be available to meet the growing demand.
