A pilot scheme designed to reduce the number of thefts of cash from pay-and-display parking machines is to start on Monday (22 June).
A number of roads around the Addiscombe and Park Hill area will see all but one machine in each road covered and made unavailable for use as, in addition to preventing theft, the council strives to make parking easier and more efficient with its cashless payment system.
Introduced last September, RingGo enables motorists to pay for their parking with a credit or debit card, rather than using cash, at a ticket machine. They need simply park their car, contact RingGo by smartphone app, telephone, SMS or online, and pay the parking charge via their phone.
The pilot scheme covers 15 roads: Leslie Park Road, Lebanon Road, Addiscombe Court Road, Tunstall Road, Park Hill Rise, Park Hill Road, Oval Road, Cedar Road, Chisholm Road, Bisenden Road, Brickwood Road, Blake Road, Colson Road, Leslie Grove, Alpha Road.
