Dubai International City residents anger over parking problems
Fed up with struggling to find parking near their homes each day, people living in International City have appealed to authorities not to renew the licences of transport and car hire companies in the area.
Residents have complained of parking places being taken by lorries, school buses and even oil tankers overnight.
“It is a massive problem. Sometimes it takes more than an hour to find parking,” said Arif Sibte, who has lived in the apartment community for the past seven years.
“There are oil tankers parked and this is very dangerous. Surely tankers should not be parked anywhere near residences and where children play.”
The affordable housing development has about 60,000 people living in 22,000 flats. They share parking spaces with 5,000 businesses on the ground floor of the 380 buildings Details
