Smart Parking’s operations team has been busy in the Australian city of Melbourne recently, completing three new installations over the past couple of months.
Working around lockdowns and restrictions proved challenging at times, but we’re excited to share the news that the planned installations at the Victorian Pride Centre, Queen Victoria Market, and Hunter Werribee (an extension to our Wyndham City project) have been completed on time.
- The Victorian Pride Centre is an architecturally impressive project aimed at bringing a progressive and inclusive LGBTIQ+ community hub to Melbourne in 2021. The Centre will be home to Victoria's premier LGBTIQ+ health, wellbeing, cultural and multi-media organisations with a range of community groups. The Victorian Pride Centre is one of the largest buildings of its kind in the world. To complement the development and ensure visitors have adequate access, Smart Parking has been engaged to install a SmartPark car park system.
- Queen Victoria Market is an extensive site, sprawling over 7 hectares of the CBD, and the current 720-bay at-grade car park will be transformed in stages into a new 1.75 hectare public open space as part of the City of Melbourne’s renewal of the market precinct. Car parking will be relocated nearby from around mid-2021, with 500 customer car parking spaces to be shifted to a below ground car park just 20 metres from the market on Therry Street, currently under construction at the Munro development.
- Smart Parking are delighted to announce that we have signed a contract to supply and install our SmartPark technology solution in over 2,000 parking bays in Wyndham. The hardware will include over 2,000 vehicle detection sensors installed in individual parking bays to monitor vehicle activity, along with our SmartSpot gateways. The SmartSpot gateways are multifunctional communication gateways that relay live parking events from the sensors to Smart Parking’s IoT (Internet of Things) SmartCloud platform.
The number of Smart Parking installations in Victoria is now in excess of 20 sites, and our number of smart city projects continues to rise.
