The Istanbul Municipality is preparing to introduce its solution to the quagmire of constantly full multistory car parks, one of the city's
increasingly problematic issues.
The introducing of the floating car parks are an attempt to try and resolve the chronic traffic problems of Turkey's largest city, local officials
"The municipal car park operator said it will use out-of-service ferries anchored in the Bosphorus to create multi-storey lots near traffic
The floating car parks will also have facilities such as cafes, recreation areas and art galleries, according to ISPARK.
The ferry car parks are planned to be operational 24 hours, will have a capacity of nearly 400 cars, and provide a range of facilities such as
cafeterias and art galleries, İSPARK has said.
"Traffic congestion and a lack of parking is a major problem for the bustling metropolis of 16 million people."
With the lack of space and chronic congestion that many big cities are suffering, this may be a temporary ease to the problem but I don't think it's a
long term solution to the massive problem some cities experience.
