Proposed Multi-Storey Carpark Complex, Central Business District, Abuja

ABSTRACT

Transportation systems. and the ro utes .they use have greatl ~ influenced both how and

where people live. Rel iab le transportation allows a population to expand throughout a

country 's territory and to live comfortably in remote areas far from factories and farms.

Transport in one form or another is a basic and essential part of the daily rhy thm of life .

At different stages of development, however, and in different sets of circumstances, the

nature of the demand for tran sport is likely to vary a great deal with the increase in

population and economic act ivities in nigerian cities, the number of motorvehicle s is

growing at a faster rate than the proportion of urban space devoted to roads.

In urban areas particularly, but also in suburban areas, the growing commercialization of

available land has produced rapid and large inc rease in land values, to the extent that the

use of large areas of land for parking automobiles and other vehicles is uneconomical.

unfortunately, the very commerci alization which enhances the land values creates an

increased demand fo r vehicle -parking space. It is obviou s therefore, that optimum

economic use of land can only be achieved through the use of multi-storey car parking

garagesA multi-storey car park. or a parking garage is a building (or part thereof) which is

designed spec ifically to be for automobile parking and where there are a number of floo rs

or levels on which parking takes place. it is essentially a stacked car park.

Central business district is the city 's heart, pulsating with business, government and

recreational act ivity . it is chosen as study background because of the growing vehicular

nature of the city (abuja is vehicular based), there is an increase in population as

compared to forecast and an increasing reduction of the buildable urban space.

furthermore the influx of vehicullar traffic from elite res idential areas such as maitaima,

asokoro, wuse and large satellite towns such as kubwa, nyanya, lugbe add more parking

pressures to the central business district.

Abuja as administrative and growing commercial centres will continue to play a very

unique role in the development of nigeria. its problems are the creation of all the states of

nigeria, and as such every sector has a role to play in finding solutions to them-especially the storage of the large number of automobiles that ply the city.
