Nowadays, people keep busy to own their parallel towards in developing countries.
As we can see, Kangar Town also busy with people to get education and services.
Indirectly, there will be a major issue in parking problems. One of the problems is the
limitation of parking space which is require drivers to take a long time to find the
available parking.Other than that, small parking size also one of the problem. This is
because drivers will face difficulties in getting out of their car. By refer to my
research questionnaire, people complaint that their car will scratch to other car when
parked side by side. Since the dimension of car parking in Malaysia used the standard
dimensions, all states should follow the guideline that has been stated by Jabatan
Kerja Raya (JKR). Jabatan Perancangan Bandar dan Desa (JPBD) Semenanjimg
Malaysia also has their owned guide to be refered in this study. The purpose of this
study is to investigate the existing parking size and its dimension in Kangar town. In
this study. Static Global Positioning System (GPS) method is used to obtain the
coordinate of the parking lot. It is used as a control method. Total station also used to
collect the data. Meanwhile, for processing data, AutoCAD software is used to show
the different size of both designs to analyze patterns and dimension of existing
parking in Kangar town. In a nut shell, the final result is obtained by comparing the
existing map car parking layout with the proposed car parking layout.The result
shows that the existing parking in Kangar are not hundred percent (100%) followed
by the guidelines for all types of parking lot. Therefore, the government, private
agencies or responsible parties need to solve the problem about car parking. Even this
is not a big problem but causing dissatisfaction or comfort to the users.
