A new car park barrier system with ANPR recognition and upgraded payment machines have been recently deployed at the St Mary’s Hospital in the Isle of Wight in a bid to streamline traffic to the busy car park, a recent news report in the local media has been able to suggest.
Following a period of commissioning and testing, the automatic number plate recognition (ANPR) system is now ready and affects the main visitor car park at the front of the hospital.
The north car park adjacent to maternity and the coronary care unit (CCU) will operate the same system later in the month.
Instead of using the old pay and display ticket system, ANPR reads the car number plate when drivers arrive and leave the car park.
New payment machines have been installed in both car parks as well as inside the main entrance and north entrance adjacent to the reception areas.
In addition to the automated number plate recognition in the main car park, a barrier will be in operation towards the south of the site.
