The Chennai Port Trust would set up ’Multi-Layer Car Parks’ to facilitate auto manufacturers park their export consignments, a senior official said on Tuesday.
“We will demolish all old buildings and replace them with ’Multi-Layer car parks’ with a capacity to park 6,000 cars,” the official, who did not wish to be named, said.
The first Multi-Layer Car Park would come up near the Ro-Ro berth, close to Bharati Dock, he said.
Chennai Port Trust is considered the second biggest container terminal, he said, adding that there are also plans to make it a ‘Container and Car Hub’.
The official also suggested that car manufacturers use additional land near the Container Terminal to park vehicles.
