UT Administration said underground Metro stations in Chandigarh would have no parking facility. He added it would not be possible to allocate parking space for every Metro station in the city.He further said the parking facility would be provided at the first Metro station and the last Metro stop in the periphery. In the east-west corridor, parking would be provided at Sector 21 of Panchkula and the last Metro stop at Mullanpur, he said.In the north-south corridor, parking would be provided at Gurdwara Shahidan at Mohali, the last Metro stop. As there was no residential area at the Capitol Complex, parking was not required at the first Metro station in the city, he added.Metro corridors would have stations at an average distance of 1.5 km. In Chandigarh, stations would be within walking distance from various sectors and hence, there was no need to construct parking facilities for underground stations. Integrated transport system recommended To make the ambitious Metro project viable and effective in the tricity, an integrated transport system has been recommended by the DMRC. The UT Administration, Punjab and Haryana, have been asked to jointly develop an integrated transport system, which will ensure a well-connected bus service.
