Promoting the e-mobility at every step, the multi-level car park (MLCP) at the Chennai International Airport will be launching an electric vehicle (EV) charging ports soon.
The MCLP charging ports would be thrown open to the public on August 1.
The 2.5-lakh-sqft MLCP can accommodate over 2,000 cars and can have shops, food courts, and a multiplex theatre.
“The west MLCP will have three EV charging stations while the east MLCP will have two,” said a spokesperson for the airport. The charging points would be increased based on future requirements. EV owners driving to MLCP would be able to pre-book the charging ports and make payments on an app, which would become functional with the MLCP.
Once the MLCP charging ports becomes operational, the surface parking area would be repurposed as a pleasing landscape with eco-friendly features.
Airport officers hope that the MLCP would ease traffic for the next 15 years. The commercial complex at the MLCP would not be limited to passengers alone. Residents, too, would be allowed entry.
