SECUNDERABAD: The Railways have come up with a solution for the parking issues at the historic Sri Ganesh Temple and adjacent Secunderabad railway station.
15 guntas of open land has been allocated for the construction of a multilevel parking complex between the two crowded locations
The temple and station premises would have a hassle-free environment with visitors parking their vehicles in the five-storey complex.
Recently, Union Railways Minister Piyush Goyal visited the temple and the parking lot following which he assured to take necessary steps to hand over the land to the Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation (GHMC) for the complex. Subsequently, the decision was made in this regard.
