The City of Casey has installed the final batch of parking sensors in the Bunjil Place precinct following the completion of the new carpark late last year.
Smart Parking sensors provide real time information on parking through a cloud-based service, collected by sensors located in the ground. The sensors send data to smart phone apps and traffic signs to help guide visitors to an available parking space.
City of Casey Mayor Cr Amanda Stapledon said a total of 895 sensors have now been installed across the Bunjil Place precinct carparks helping our visitors find a carpark more efficiently.
“Since we installed the first round of Smart Parking in the precinct significant benefits have been identified for both visitors and Council. This has included the ability to manage parking demand, to ensure fair access to short-stay parking spaces is prioritised and a reduction in traffic congestion often caused by cars circling for a park”, she said.
“Visitors are able to identify available parking spaces at just the touch of a button with Bunjil Place, Casey ARC and part of Fountain Gate’s parking all integrated within the Smart Parking App.
“The Smart Parking App also provides information on the time restrictions associated with the available space to help you find a space to best suite your visit.”
More than 85 additional carparks have been made available within the new carpark, bringing the total capacity of this space to 259, incorporating 181 parks with a two/three-hour limit and 58 all day car parks.
Real time parking availability is also accessible on the Bunjil Place website.
