Parking in Bucharest centre to be banned

Once works on the underground parking are completed, drivers will no longer be allowed to park on the streets in the centre of Bucharest. “Once the parking lots in the University and Edgar Quinet areas are built, all overground parking spots will disappear. Car traffic will be restricted across the historical centre area, and drivers will not be allowed to park on the boulevards,” the director general of the Bucharest City Hall Investment Department, Bogdan Hreapca, stated, quoted by Restrictions will be in force in other areas of Bucharest, as well. Works on the University parking started last year and are set to be completed in 2012. The parking will provide 380 parking spots and will cost EUR 32.9 M (VAT not included). An hour’s parking will cost the drivers an average EUR 0.38. Alongside the parking, the City Hall will also set up a small pedestrians’ square, complete with benches and green areas. In the Charles de Gaulle Square area, the City Hall proposes to build both an underground pass and a parking. Works will start this year, most likely in February. The parking will be three-storey high, offering 603 spots, and will cost EUR 44.9 M. One of the storeys will host a shopping centre.
