Rawalpindi to have another parking plaza
Rawalpindi – To overcome parking problems in the city, another parking plaza would be constructed at Municipal Corporation’s old building while the task of shifting wholesale markets from outside the city limits has been assigned to Rawalpindi Development Authority, said Commissioner Nadeem Aslam Chaudary on Sunday.
Talking to a delegation of traders led by President Traders Association Shahid Ghafoor Paracha, the commissioner said that as the parking plaza at Fowara Chowk had capacity for parking of 150 vehicles, construction of a new parking plaza was need of the hour to address the growing parking demands.
It was also decided that encroachments on roads and bazaars would be removed to end frequent traffic jams. The commissioner directed RDA officials to form a report regarding shifting of transport terminals, Naswari bazaar, grain market, Dalgaran bazaar, vegetable and fruit markets with the consultation of trade bodies.
