Keeping the Commonwealth Games in mind, the NDMC is setting up a park-and-ride facility at the Safdarjung Airport in the national capital, which will have space for 3,000 cars and 600 buses.

The parking lot will be a key aspect in the transport plan of athletes and visitors during the mega sports event as it will be directly connected to the Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium, the main venue of the games.

"The holding area at the Safdarjung airport is being created for parking of vehicles destined for the Nehru Stadium during the Games," an NDMC official said.

The parking area will be spread over 1.65 lakh square metres and will accommodate 3,000 cars, 600 buses and a few hundred two-wheelers. The project will involve an estimated expenditure of Rs 50 crore, he said.
