Drivers using Duke Street Multi-Storey Car Park, Hamilton will see a return to a ‘pay on foot’ system from Tuesday (3 May).
As a result, anyone parking there will now be able to pay at the end of their stay, rather than estimating in advance under the current pay and display operation.
The move comes in response to feedback from those who use it, and as part of a wider review of town centre parking focused on recovery from the pandemic, and has been designed to complement the RingGo cashless payment app, introduced last year.
Colin Park, Head of Roads and Transportation Services explained: “We have listened to what drivers and shoppers are telling us, and we believe that the change to pay on foot in Duke Street car park will benefit all users of the town centre and its businesses.
“Our aim in introducing this change is to give drivers greater flexibility on where and how long they can park, as our communities continue to look ahead beyond the Covid-19 pandemic.”
Duke Street Multi-Storey Car Park provides 614 parking spaces – including 39 for holders of blue badges and 14 electric vehicle charging points – as well as the park and ride facility for Hamilton Central Railway Station.
