THE parking woes of residents at PPR Taman Beringin in Jinjang Utara will be a thing of the past once a six-storey multi-level carpark is completed.

The initiative by the Federal Territories Ministry and Kuala Lumpur City Hall (DBKL) will benefit residents in the area, said Federal Territories Minister Datuk Seri Tengku Adnan Tengku Mansor at the project’s ground-breaking ceremony.

A budget of RM15mil has been allocated for the 11.130sq m facility which will have with 277 parking bays, a library and convenience store.

Tengku Adnan said the metal deck carpark was economical and its construction would not take as long as a regular one.

Besides this, an eight-storey multi-level carpark in PPR Intan Baiduri, Selayang is one of 11 carpark projects in Selayang that have been completed at a cost of RM30.03mil.

The carpark, which was bigger than the one planned for PPR Taman Beringin, can accommodate 387 vehicles and is equipped with two futsal courts and a convenience store.

Tengku Adnan said the ministry hoped that these initiatives would help solve parking problems faced by people in the area.

On another issue, Tengku Adnan denied claims that rental at PPRs would be increased.

“Please do not believe such news.

“The rental and existing tax rates will remain the same for all PPR residents in the Federal Territories,” he said.
