Guyana’s first two-storey car park elevates Parika
Fourteen months ago, S&R Parking Lot at 162 Parika, East Bank Essequibo became part of the growing range of services created to cater for what is one of the fastest growth industries in Guyana, the acquisition of motor vehicles.
With dozens of privately-owned vehicles hitting the roads across Guyana every month, the demand for safe and convenient parking has grown to a point where prime pieces of real estate are being transformed into commercial parking lots.
In Georgetown, the customary confusion associated with parking has been accentuated by the location of the Guyana Revenue Authority inside a single complex in Camp Street. There was a need to acquire several lots in the vicinity to serve as parking space, as the parapets on the Camp Street block where the GRA is located quickly became fully occupied to the considerable inconvenience of moving traffic.
