In a bid to streamline parking facilities in the twin cities, the Municipal Corporation Yamunanagar-Jagadhri (MCYJ) has started the marking of parking spaces on roads here.

Several traffic jams

Due to the lack of adequate parking spaces, people park their vehicles haphazardly on several roads in the twin cities causing traffic jams. Therefore, the authorities should solve this problem in such areas on a priority basis by fixing parking spaces. Anil Kumar, resident, professor colony

Park at designated place or face action

People will park their vehicles only at the marked places. After the marking is done, action will be taken against those who park their vehicles on the roads instead of parking these at the designated places.
