Multi-storey car parks in Swindon to undergo major security revamp

Swindon’s town centre car parks will receive £99,000 worth of new security measures in a bid to reduce anti-social behaviour and rough sleeping in the area, a recent news report has been able to suggest.

Following a spate of anti-social behaviour that affected all the sites for the best part of a year, Swindon Borough Council has decided to install lockable steel barriers and gates at the Brunel North, Brunel West and Fleming Way sites.

The new security measures are aimed at keeping the car parks secure even when they are closed to the public overnight and returning them to a safe state for paying customers to use in comfort.

Previously, although vehicle access has been restricted by a simple entry and exit barrier, the open nature of the sites has meant that rough sleepers and those wishing to remain out of public view for sinister reasons could still gain access on foot.

But now the Brunel North and Fleming Way sites will see steelwork installed on vehicle ramps and in the stair towers to prevent access to the upper-floors.

Car Park Barriers & Turnstiles has an extensive experience in creating advanced, reliable, yet quite affordable access restriction solutions for car parks.

The vehicle barriers developed by Car Park Barriers & Turnstiles can work in any weather, are able to immediately recognise authorised personnel and are supplied complete and ready to accept power and data connections, meaning that they can be easily interlinked with a new or existing access control system. Plus, boom arms are available in a number of different lengths to suit various road widths.

Last, but certainly not least, it’s important to mention that the automatic car park barriers supplied by Car Park Barriers & Turnstiles can also be fitted with a number of useful extras, such as a folding arm mechanism, impact release mechanism or hanging racks / barrier skirts.
