Country park using MP 104 for convenient barrier system from Cale BriParc, UK
In 2011 The Countryside Access Service of Central Bedfordshire Council complimented the existing facility at Stockgrove Country Park with the Rushmere Estates.
At the same time, the Council decided to introduce charges at both of the parks. They chose a fixed price pay-at-exit system from Cale BriParc. Proximity season cards are offered to the many regular visitors and it is possible to pay with tokens purchased at cafes located within the parks, in case the visitor does not have the correct change.
A GSM wireless intercom system was installed and when a driver presses the help button, one of several pre-programmed telephone numbers is automatically dialled. The call recipient has the ability to remotely raise the barrier using their handset.
The products have proven reliable, which was an important consideration for the Council.
