Shropshire Council has installed 25 new eco-friendly Parkeon StradaPAL parking terminals as part of a county-wide replacement programme involving up to 160 machines.
The new terminals, located both on and off street in Shrewsbury town centre and in Bridgnorth, enhance customer convenience through multiple payment options, including Chip & Pin, contactless and coin, and will also enable the council to provide print on demand discount coupons in the future.
Vernon Williment, recently appointed Regional Sales Manager for Parkeon covering the Midlands, South West and South Wales, commented:
“These new terminals were selected in part for their security features, reliability, production quality and low carbon solar powered footprint, but because they also provide a pathway to delivering terminal-based services in the future, including retail promotions.”
The StradaPAL terminals are linked to Parkeon’s Parkfolio central management system, enabling the council to monitor their estate remotely and to obtain detailed parking and payment data to inform future strategies.
Steve Davenport, Shropshire Council’s Cabinet member for highways and transport, said:
“I’m really pleased that these new, state-of-the-art machines are now in place in parts of Shrewsbury and Bridgnorth. They mean we can now offer a modern, much improved, parking service in the areas where the machines have been installed, and we hope we’ll soon see similar machines in place around the county under our proposed new parking strategy.”
