Abstract

Although road pricing, time restrictions, priority bus lanes, and no car zones discourage the car usage in the city circles, construction of car parks never stop cars entering into cities and roaming for parking. Devoid of restrictions for car usage, many developed cities were compelled to employ high-tech parking management to cope with ever increasing demand for parking. Without pursuing the same mistake, the developing cities can learn the sustainable solutions that have been suggested for the developed cities. Development of public transport as an alternative to everyone while restricting the car usage would be the best solution for a geographically constricted city with lot of archaeologically valuable sites like Kandy in Sri Lanka
