Mysureans soon will have to pay for parking vehicles at the commercial junctions of the city such as Devaraja Urs Road, Sayyaji Rao Road and Ashoka Road.
After decade-long wait, the Mysuru City Corporation has decided to introduce the pay and park system for the first time, to which the online tenders for contract to maintain the parking facility and auction will be open on November 11.
Mayor B L Bhyrappa, speaking to reporters, told that the civic body has now become exhausted with the increasing parking menace in the city. “There have been several complaints from the commuters against the shopkeepers for occupying the most space on these streets, especially for car parking which would be occupied for the entire day. “Perhaps, finding space even for the two wheeler parking had become a challenge for motorists on these commercials roads. Now, with the new initiative there seems to be a solution for the problem,” he added.
