The GDN on February 21 reported that Bahrain created 25,210 new car park spaces between 2007 and last year. I appreciate that the authorities acquired private land and old properties for public car parking. It would be helpful if it acquired land and old properties to implement multi-level car parking in congested areas.
Apart from this, in my opinion renewable energy, especially solar energy and wind power, should also be used in multi-level parking facilities.
It would support the green energy project, and if successful, can be expanded.
I also suggest installing solar panels on car parks and roofs. Private sector investors should be encouraged to expand this service to promote green energy on a large scale. I hope the authorities will consider the suggestion. Hope to see more multi-level parking systems with renewable energy soon.
