Highways company Island Roads will install 40 energy-efficient Parkeon
Strada Rapide parking terminals as part of a system upgrade across the Isle of Wight. The solar-powered technology is intended to replace 139 of Island Roads’ terminals by 2020.
David Wallis, Island Roads’ operations and maintenance manager, says: “The new meters will be more reliable than the models they are replacing, some of which were nearing the end of their serviceable life and required an increasing amount of maintenance.”
Parkeon’s Smartfolio central management system monitors the terminals remotely and allows parking and payment data to be analysed to support the council’s future parking strategy.
The Isle of Wight’s parking strategy aims to provide a service and consistent approach to all areas of parking management that will support the local community while also benefitting residents, tourists and businesses.
