Car park congestion prompts introduction of fees

EFFECTIVE from today Damodar City Centre customers who use carpark facilities at the complex will be required to pay for the use of the space.

In a public notice issued yesterday, Damodar Group chief executive officer Div Damodar said the car park charge was nominal amount of $2 for four hours for every vehicle that entered the car park.

He said cars parked beyond four hours would be charged $2 per hour thereafter.

According to Mr Damodar they had not charged parking fees since its opening in December 2013 but the continuous increase in vehicle congestion had caused much frustration among many customers over the past two years, forcing them to introduce car park fees.

He said the objective of the car park charges was to reduce unessential parking at Damodar City that would lead to quicker turnover of car park spaces.

"The Damodar City Centre attracts thousands of customers on a daily basis to its cinemas, supermarket, food court and many shops.

"The car park charge will be trialed over the next few months and will be reviewed accordingly," he said.

The management has also advised customers to be aware of the new car park charges and expect to be issued a car park slip when they drive in from today.

Mr Damodar also stressed that some slight delays, as with all paid car parks, would be encountered in entering and exiting Damodar City Centre car park.
