Kochi’s multi-level car park may be up and running in a year

Infrastructure Urban

Thanks to the Cochin Smart Mission, Kochi will finally get its first multilevel car parking. The facility is coming up near the Centre for Heritage, Environment and Development (C-Hed) building at Kacheripady Junction. The Rs.250 mn project will be executed by National Highways and Infrastructure Development. Seven floors of the automated facility can accommodate 145 cars and ground-level parking will cater to two-wheelers. NHIDCL has already started the tendering process. Construction should start by January and finish within a year. NHIDCL will prepare the DPR and oversee the construction, and will get 9 per cent of the total project cost as fee for DPR. It will also look after the operation and maintenance of the system for five years.
