New Delhi: The Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) is coming up with multi-level parking facility in phase-4. This multilevel car parking facility will be developed jointly by Delhi Metro and North Delhi Municipal Corporation (North DMC) at Nabi Karim metro station in Central Delhi. This facility will be able to park more than 3,000 cars.
A memorandum of understanding (MoU) has been signed for the project between DMRC’s Managing Director (MD) Dr Mangu Singh and North DMC’s Commissioner Gyanesh Bharti on Friday in New Delhi. The ceremony was held through video conferencing in the presence of the Lieutenant Governor of Delhi (LG Delhi) Anil Baijal and the Mayor of North DMC Jai Prakash. As part of the scope of Work, DMRC will construct the integrated substructure for the station and North DMC will construct the superstructure for the parking as well as commercial facilities through the concessionaire. They will also operate and maintain the parking facility and the commercial block.
The car parking facility will be a part of an integrated station complex at Nabi Karim. While an interchange facility for the Janakpuri West – RK Ashram Marg Metro corridor and the proposed Inderlok – Indraprastha corridor of phase-4 will come up underground, a six-storey car parking facility along with a three-storey commercial complex will be constructed above the station structure. The parking facility will be fully automated.
The Metro station shall consist of four underground levels and on the surface, the building shall have a formation of ground floor plus eight floors. Above the surface, three floors shall be used for commercial purposes and six shall be utilized for parking. The total land area would be around 25,000 square metres located at Shahi Idgah Road, Sadar Bazar.
Delhi Metro had identified this piece of land as it had to construct an interchange station. North DMC which owns the land also had plans for a multi-level parking cum commercial facility. After a series of meetings, an innovative solution was found by combining the two projects as an integrated complex.
This parking facility will significantly reduce parking-related problems in the Nabi Karim area which faces urban challenges such as congestion and lack of parking space. Delhi Metro had earlier constructed a multilevel parking facility at the New Delhi metro station of the Airport Express Line.
