BBMP scouting for parking space, under a park

BBMP is now scouting the underground of the citys parks for some parking room.
It is a truth, universally acknowledged, that Bangalore has more cars than parking spaces. Multilevel parking, setting up new parking enclosures, and other measures adopted by the Bruhat Bangalore Mahanagara Palike (BBMP) have not really stopped cars from jostling for that elusive kerb to park by. However, forced by the lack of parking space on the ground, BBMP is now scouting the underground of the citys parks for some parking room.

Bharat Lal Meena, BBMP commissioner told Express: We are identifying locations for these basement parking and other multi-storey proposals on an experiment basis. If the projects pay off, then there will be more of the same to ease the parking congestion. A likely space for an underground parking site is the park opposite Sampige Theatre, said H Rajhamsa, technical advisor to BBMP.

He said that his technology of building under-parks and grounds without disturbing the upper soil content could soon be implemented as the BBMP is willing to experiment with outof- the-box solutions.

Rajasimha had patented the technology to build underground parks two years ago. An area under the ground is fortified with the use of steel without disturbing the top soil, he said. Flooding and other natural calamities can be controlled to a large extent with proper design, technology and sewage facilities, he said.

Rajasimha said that other parking solutions include multilevel parking, basement that can be built within 26 hours, and under-road parking that can be built without disturbing traffic.
