District Collector S.A.M. Rizvi has asked officials to serve notices on owners of buildings, complexes and shopping malls directing them to provide parking facilities.

The illegal constructions should be demolished if they do not respond in stipulated time, he said.

Addressing a Road Safety meeting here on Thursday, Mr. Rizvi said that there were 83 buildings that did not have parking area in the city.

The objectionable encroachments in cellars of commercial complexes and buildings on busy roads were resulting in traffic snarl on Bandar and Eluru Roads, and at Governorpet.

Referring to Truck and Goods Terminal at Ibrahimpatnam, he asked the VGTMUDA to complete the works taken up at a cost of Rs. 80 lakh at earliest.

He wanted the Municipal Corporation and National Highways Authority of India (NHAI) to construct passage for pedestrians on highway near Krishnalanka to avoid road accidents.

When it was brought to his notice that works on Nirmala Convent Road were not completed, he asked the officials to suggest the gas company to complete its works by week end.

City Police Commissioner N. Madhusudhan Reddy, District SP PVS Ramakrishna, Municipal Commissioner G. Ravi Babu, DTC A. Mohan, R&B SE Srimannarayana, Panchayati Raj SE G. Jayaraju, APSRTC Deputy Chief Traffic Manager G. Nagendra Prasad, Tansco SE Mohan Krishna, NHAI Manager D.S. Naidu, DEO M. V.
