Punjab Engineering College unveils new vehicle control measures
In Phase-1, parts of three roads will become vehicle-free and two temporary parking areas will be created for students, one for two wheelers and the other for four wheelers. In Phases 2 and 3, these parking spaces will be made permanent by paving of the areas, provision of round-the-clock security, proper lighting arrangement and an appropriate token system.
“It is a unique project initiated by the students following a fatal accident on campus last semester. We hope that the measures will be implemented in a gradual manner in which the faculty, staff and students are not inconvenienced,” said Professor Manoj Datta, Director, PEC. He added, “The progress will be closely monitored during the first week for a smooth transition from the existing system to the new one with students and faculty acting as facilitators”.
The temporary parking places allotted for students will have a free security cover without tokens. Two security guards at each parking will help in the orderly parking of vehicles. The token system is likely to start in Phase-2.
The student parking will remain operational from 7 am to 5.30 pm on all working days. After 5.30 pm on working days and for a full day during holidays and vacations, the students may park their vehicles at other parking areas also.
