Executive Summary Addis Ababa has poor local road network that paves a way for the over flooding of the main road with vehicles and pedestrians. Government spends a chunk of its meagre financial resource every year so as to facilitate smooth mobility. Despite such attempts, one-thirds or one-fourth of the existing street lanes are occupied by Street-side parking. Together with the traffic volume increase, has been aggravating, congestion, GHGs emission/air pollution and traffic accidents. Therefore, the implementation of this off-street parking is a critical approach to solve the prevailing congestion problems and the subsequent urban air pollution caused by over slowing movement of vehicles. In addition, the commuter time and energy wastage could be reduced significantly following ordered and smooth traffic flow in the main artery roads of the city. Moreover, the foreign currency for purchase of fuel import will be reduced significantly as the consequence of the smooth traffic flow. The major activities under the project are:: • Mapping for parking area, develop guideline for parking management and the private sector investment on parking • Construction of one pilot parking tower
