HCMC – Relevant agencies have proposed building multi-storey parking lots at four locations covering a combined 1,500 square meters in HCMC.
The proposed sites include a section of Le Lai Street in District 1, an area in front of Le Van Tam Park, a part of Cho Lon Bus Station, and a pavement section of Hai Thuong Lan Ong Street in District 5.
According to the city’s Department of Transport, these lots will have a total capacity of 350 autos with nine seats and below, and over 200 motorbikes.
The project has been favored over the underground parking lot initiative in HCMC due to its cost-effectiveness and rapid construction.
The proposal is part of the city’s efforts to increase parking space, especially in the face of a shortage of parking spaces in the commercial business district.
This comes as HCMC authorities gear up to implement the National Assembly’s Resolution 98/2023, which approves dozens of special mechanisms and policies for the development of HCMC. This resolution will take effect from August 1, 2023, replacing Resolution 54 issued in 2017, which served the same purpose.
