The parking fee at the new bus stand in Tirunelveli saw a steep hike from April 1. However, the infrastructure here is far from satisfactory. A majority of the vehicles have to be parked in the open as the covered space is limited.
The cement platform is damaged resulting in many vehicle owners finding it difficult to position their two-wheelers. Authorities should provide basic needs.
