Fife Council will be installing 16 new Metric Accents over the next few weeks and removing Metric Autoslots which were installed in 1992 when off-street pay and display was introduced.
Picture 364 Metric.jpgThe coin operated Autoslot was the first parking machine bought by Fife Council who are now replacing the older units with Accents which have become the local authoritys preferred choice of pay and display.

The 16 new Accents are being installed in two multi-storey car parks in Kirkcaldy, 12 in the Esplanade and four in the Thistle.

Fife Council will have a total of 102 Metric pay and display parking machines when the installation of the new Accents is complete.

Metric won their first tender from Fife for the Accent machine in 2001 and they are installed in most areas of the authority.

Said Jim Beveridge, Lead Officer, Parking Management: The Accent is a very reliable and robust machine and the servicing supplied under contract to Metric is really good.

In particular, the response of the maintenance engineers who ring us to see if we need them. And when we report a problem, such as damage, the engineer is always there, he added.

Fife Council owns and maintains 158 car parks, 31 of which charge a parking fee.
