Stilt parking planned for avoiding decongestion

Bangalore: BBMP is planning to issue a notice introducing a rule of stilt parking to avoid congestion in the city. A proposal is expected to be submitted by the official panel which is formed on the issue of decongestion of the city which is headed by the chief secretary. Official sources say that the rule making stilt parking mandatory could be introduced in the Revised Master Plan (RMP) for the city of Bangalore. Stilt parking was made compulsory in Delhi following a judicial dispute which kept the enforcement of the rule in abeyance. The rule for stilt parking in Bangalore can be expected to be prepared in 2015.

Car Parking for 3rd floor HouseAccording to the officials, the proposal is being made ready and various pros and cons are evaluated with the height of the buildings and the stilt are being worked out. It may be that they may propose a 9 feet high stilt which can be made mandatory.

This rule will be applicable for residential houses of Bangalore having more than two floors. The house owners and the developers may have to start construction of the dwelling units from the first floor making the ground floor parking space for vehicles.

It is expected that to avoid the congestion in the city and refrain people to park their cars on the road, this measure has been adopted wherein the clause of stilt parking will be introduced in the Byelaws of BBMP. The officials remarked that although the Master Plan of BBMP, 2015 specifies mandatory provision of parking space, but it doesn’t talk of stilt parking. Although it’s a practice to show parking spaces but normally the ground floor is used for residence.

The authorities hope that with the enforcement of these laws and making stilt parking mandatory the city’s congestion will be controlled, which will decrease traffic snarls and accident rates too. If this rule is accepted and enforced, it will certainly be a step towards better living conditions in the city.
