Urban Development: Supporting Alex. Governorate: A Study of Parking Areas in Alexandria

In April 2007, Alex Med conducted a preliminary study of the parking areas in Alexandria, requested by the Governorate of the city. This study investigated the causes of the parking problems and proposed preliminary solutions. The parking problem is the result of urban densification, improper land use and the conversion of residential apartments into business enterprises. The study also pointed out the location of public garages and parking areas, it highlighted the vacant areas that could be used for parking, and the streets that might be partially suitable for parking at certain hours of the day. The study concluded with short, medium, and long term recommendations to solve the problem and the final report was submitted to the Governorate of Alexandria.
