Parking zone set up with 335 parking spaces

A parking zone with 335 motorcycle parking slots has been constructed within the stadium located on Ameenee Magu.

Male' City Mayor, Dr. Moamed Muizzu, said the new parking zone was built to solve the problem of lack of parking spaces on Ameenee Magu, as the parking areas on the road were removed in preparation for the launch of minibus services in the city. The new parking zone can be used from next week onwards, he said.

The City Council is working to arrange for a certain number of cars to park in the new parking zone.

The council has also decided to set up parking zones in several areas along the main street, Majeedhee Magu, as soon as land is allocated for the purpose.

Minibus services are set to start next Monday and will cost MVR 7 per trip. Parking will not be allowed on Ameenee Magu, Majeedhee Magu, Fareedhee Magu, and Orchid Magu when the service commences.
