Hi-tech initiative to control paid parking in city centre

31 January 2014
Rochelle de Kock

IF YOU plan to visit the Port Elizabeth city centre in the near future, prepare to pay for parking.

Nelson Mandela Bay councillors have approved a parking management system in which 1329 bays in Port Elizabeth’s city centre will be manned by attendants carrying mobile meters, replacing the conventional coin-operated parking metres.

The aim of the project, which will be managed by the Mandela Bay Development Agency (MBDA), is to beef up parking security in the CBD while creating formal jobs for marshals.

Councillors who sit on the economic development, tourism and agriculture portfolio committee gave the initiative the thumbs-up yesterday, but it will stillhave to be approved by the safety and security committee – and eventually by the full council.
