The Sector V authorities will soon set up car service centres, auto-spare shops and tyre outlets on at least two levels of the eight-storey parking lot in Sector V, an official of the Nabadiganta Industrial Township Authority (NDITA) said.
The parking lot — located in AQ Block, near the Technopolis building — has space for at least 600 cars.
The official said such shops would make the parking lot more popular as motorists will be able to get their cars serviced or washed, or get a tyre replaced while they go about their regular business in Sector V.
“We will soon set up these shops. People can park their vehicles here and also get them serviced and washed. We will also have eateries there,” said Debashis Sen, the chairman of NDITA, which looks after the civic amenities of the tech hub.
Many people who have offices in Sector V now commute in personal vehicles to ensure physical distancing, a key precautionary measure against Covid-19.
The parking lot is yet to get traction and operate at its optimum capacity. The Sector V authorities want to popularise it so that streets and roads of the IT hub remain free of parked cars.Parking on roads is rampant in Sector V.
The multi-storey car park became operational last week. The top floor has a solar-top banquet hall. The building has two elevators.
Vehicles can be driven through ramps to the 8th floor.
The NDITA is also going to set up dedicated spaces for two-wheelers and a bicycle stand.
