Rome city council's urban parking plan foresees the creation of some 50,000 parking spaces for residents and commuters in and around the city centre over the next few years. With some 11,000 spots already opened and a further 8,000 under construction at 59 sites, plans are also afoot to increase capacity by a further 8,000 slots at 68 additional sites. These include proposals for underground car parks for residents in the Via Giulia quarter of the city's historic centre. Specialist teams are already surveying the area, with the help of the latest hi-tech equipment, to search for any important archaeological remains. The car park will accommodate up to 700 vehicles below a newly-pedestrianised area twice the size of Campo de Fiori. A further 135 sites which would create 23,000 spaces have been earmarked for future development under the council's plan, but have yet to reach the drawing board.
