The Nadi Town Council has begun the installation of pay and display electronic parking metres around town.

Chief executive officer Craig Powell said so far technicians had installed two electronic metres with 28 more in coming weeks.

“We are trialling these two because coin operated marking metres will eventually become obsolete,” he said.

The council is expected to save a lot from the installation of the solar and battery-operated parking metres.

Previously the coin operated metres have been vandalised.

“It will be more effective for the council because it is not only energy efficient, but user friendly as well. We will save on replacement of parts for paid parking metres,” Mr Powell said.

The public can park cars for longer period using an electronic parking metre compared to a coin operated one.

One parking metre can cater for eight cars.

Tickets can be used in either Namaka and Nadi, provided the time limit has not exceeded.

Motorists are required to place tickets on the windscreen and be visible to the enforcement officers who make the rounds.

Meanwhile, eight pay and display electronic metres are in good working condition at the Namaka area that were installed during the N2 roading project.by Ivamere Nataro
