Dwara: Parking issue is prevalent with the growing markets in Sector 12, Dwarka. Vehicles are being parked on the roads as there is no enough parking space near commercial places. The condition is going from bad to worse with time.
On the road from the intersection of Sector 4/12 near Dwarka International School towards Bal Bharti School and Vidyut Chowk towards KM Chowk, vehicles can be seen parked on the roadside leaving no space for pedestrians on both sides of the road. There is also less space left for the other vehicles to commute.
Anjana Sinha, General Secretary of Dwarkadheesh Apartments in Sector 12 said, “In this particular stretch, you can see that the commercial activities are on the rise with the emerging market. The area has commercial complexes with various shops, banks, institutes etc.”
She continued, “All such places lack proper parking space. The lands where such commercials shops have emerged are along the road. Even the shops have encroached on the footpaths too. This will grow and create a difficult situation.”
Inside the sector near a private hospital and Captain Mohan Chand Sharma Community Centre of Corporation, vehicles are being parked on roads on both sides. Residents of the societies like Shivam Apartments, Subham Apartments etc are facing problems due to parked vehicles on the roadside in front of the societies. They have complained about the subject to the civic bodies but there is no relief in this direction.
Pankaj, a resident of Abhiyan Apartments has been writing about the subject to the authorities. He shared, “New offices are coming in the area and they have no parking space. Not even a private hospital is managing the parking of vehicles despite having an underground parking space. I could not understand that how the civic bodies have failed in planning parking spaces in this area. They should think over it seriously.”
