New Delhi: As part of efforts to cope up with the parking space crunch in the capital, the MCD will construct three modern stack parking sites.

The Municipal Corporation of Delhi has invited bids for setting up a three-level stack parking site, where cars can be kept on horizontal decks using hydraulic lifts, in New Lajpat Rai Market area in old Delhi. In the coming days, tenders will be invited for two more stack parking sites in Darya Ganj and near ITO, officials said.

Last year, MCD had invited tenders for constructing stack or puzzle parkings in congested Karol Bagh and Paharganj areas while bids for a similar project in Shalimar Bagh was invited last month.

The multi-level puzzle-type stack parking system can have three, four or five decks of iron frames, which can be moved vertically or horizontally with powerful hydraulic lifts.

For the first time such a technology is being used for constructing parking sites in Delhi, officials said, adding it has been used extensively in Japan, Singapore and Germany.

"The benefit of this system is that it can help save space. With the use of this technology, available space can be maximised by stacking three or four cars in the space which would otherwise be occupied by a single vehicle," they said.
