Belagavi: Erratic parking congests airport area

Belagavi: Despite the availability of free parking slots, those dropping and picking up passengers are haphazardly parking their vehicles outside the Belagavi Airpot at Sambra, creating congestion in the area. A majority of vehicle users are resorting to parking at non-designated areas, especially on the lanes, much to the inconvenience of disciplined airport users.
Rohan Juvali, a regular user of the airport who is also the president of Belagavi District Small Scale Industries Association, said a system needs to be in place to avoid inconvenience to the public. "It is surprising that educated people park cars on the roads causing unnecessary traffic during peak hours."

Juvali said the authorities should start fining people who fail to obey the parking norms.

Rajendra Harakuni, Belagavi City BJP president and another frequent user, said the condition was worse earlier. "People used to park at public transport bay. The problem was sorted out after lot of efforts. Even though no-parking boards are on display, vehicle users do not bother. There is no parking sense among a majority of people. "Now we are pursuing the issue and soon this problem may end. However, until now it is truly causing inconvenience," he said.
