Parking made easier with £64k Lucy Tower Street upgrade

New machines will also have a contactless option

A technology investment of £64,000 at the Lucy Tower Street multi-storey will make parking quicker and easier for everyone, the City of Lincoln Council has promised.

Ten new pay and display machines have been installed to allow for faster payments, with a more reliable connection. This should ensure card payments are available at all times.

The new machines also have a contactless option.

The machines cost the council £5,000 each and the new broadband network came after an investment of £14,000.

Rod Williamson, Team Leader City Services, said: “We are aware that until now, card payments at Lucy Tower have been affected by unreliability, and this new system makes these issues a thing of the past.

“The council will be investing more into parking later this summer, when all machines at the Broadgate Car Park will be replaced with this new efficient system.

“This will mean that, along with Lincoln Central, all three council-owned multi-storey car parks will offer faster more reliable payments.

“We continue to reinvest income from parking into improving parking services for our customers.”

Lucy Tower Car Park, and many other of our car parks also allow for PayByPhone online payment, making parking even easier. This can be found on the Apple App Store or Google Play by searching for ‘PayByPhone”.
