Contactless car park barriers to become more popular as danger of COVID-19 looms

Car park barriers with contactless payment are to become more popular as drivers shun away from touching surfaces due to the onset of the COVID-19. One of the best examples is the new ‘state of the art’ parking machines that are being installed in Swansea Council’s multi-storey car parks at a cost of £280,000, according to a recent news report in the local media.

With the new machines, a ticket won’t be issued and drivers will instead input their registration number when they leave the car park, a camera at the entrance will have logged your plate when you entered. Cameras at the barriers will then recognise those who have paid.

Forgetful drivers will also be able to pay for their parking with a contactless card at the barrier if they omit to pay at the ticket machine.

“These state-of-the-art machines are much-needed and will be welcome replacements for the old payment equipment which has reached the end of its useful life,” said Councillor Mark Thomas, Cabinet Member for Environment and Infrastructure.
