 Ongoing construction of multi-level car parking at Nagaland State Transport (NST) bus station here is likely to be completed next year. Sources from the municipal affairs department told Nagaland Post that the multi-level car parking was initially sanctioned under the Jawaharlal Nehru National Urban Renewal Mission (JNNURM), but the construction was stopped due to the inability to meet the state’s share.

Sources said that construction resumed after the project was handed over to the municipal affairs department under smart city project with zero deficit.

Sources from the transport department also told Nagaland Post the department was planning to have better established infrastructure at the ongoing multi-level car parking, which was now being constructed under the smart city project. It has been more than a decade since the NST bus station at Kohima town was dismantled for building multi-level car parking. There is also another multi-level car parking coming up at Old Medical directorate under smart city project. On February 14, 2019, the Kohima Municipal Council administrator Kovi Meyase had disclosed estimated project cost of two multilevel parking slots at Old NST and old medical directorate were Rs 28.79 crore and Rs 31.21 crore respectively.

Meanwhile, on resumption of NST bus services that had been currently suspended due to COVID-19, the transport department sources said that a proposal has been put forward to the government to resume service. Sources informed that an intake of only 50% passengers with enhanced fare has been proposed.

Sources said that reducing intake of passengers while enhancing fare was made so the government did not lose revenue. There are nine ongoing projects under Kohima Smart City including multi-level car parking at Old NST and Old Medical directorate, Kohima Integrated Command and Control Centre, parking and community hall at New Market, Kohima Wifi Phase-1, city beautification Phase-1, construction of the Capital Cultural Hall, Greenbelt Development.
