ON-STREET PARKING IN INNER KATHMANDU: DETERMINING ON-STREET PARKING LOAD AND PARKING EFFICIENCY OF MOTORCYCLES IN THE STREETS OF NEW ROAD IN KATHMANDU METROPOLITAN CITY (142130)

Abstract : As the demand of parking spaces has been increasing within the ever growing Kathmandu city, New Road, located at the central part of Kathmandu city, relies upon both the on-street and off-street parking system. This study is carried out to provide the basic on-street parking information and analysis on New Road, the busiest high-street of Nepal. In the present work, accumulation survey in peak hours was carried out to collect data for every day of a week. Parameters such as street length, width of the parking space, number of vehicles and parking accumulation for six street segments surrounding the New Road were collected manually since Nepal is not equipped with parking data and the use of GIS software are rarely used. Using the data obtained from the field, accumulation curve for each street segment during weekdays and weekends are made separately. Parking load during weekdays is found to be very high which has resulted in near-full to beyond-full land use of on-street parking. Longer term alternatives like multistorey parking lots are required rather than allocating parking area on the already narrow streets of New Road.
