Solve Parking Woes

I read an interesting story in MyPaper entitled "Can't solve parking woes? Stack your car".

There is a mechanised parking system that can stack 8 to 16 cars on its platforms. It occupies the the parking space for 2 cars. 400 of these systems are used in Korea. It is being exported to other countries.

The Singapore distributor thinks that it is suitable for popular spots like Geylang, Holland Village and Demsey.

The Land Transport Authority has built a car park that can accomodate 142 cars at Club Street. Motorists drive their car to a platform and leave it there. A computer system directs the platform to stack the car in the right place.

We need to use mechanised systems for car parking, as space will become more expensive in the future.
