Seven new Metric Aura pay-and-display machines have been installed in a refurbished multi-storey car park within the shadows of a majestic cathedral.
The Levetts Field multi-storey in Lichfield has been re-opened in time for the busy Christmas period after undergoing structure strengthening and a cosmetic revamp.
The 344-space short-stay car park, with Lichfield Cathedral in the background, has re-opened after a year’s closure.
According to Lichfield District Council’s director of operational services, Mrs Ruth Plant, a major criteria in the multi-storey repair process was having it open in time for the run-up to Christmas.
The car park, with its new Auras, charges 90p/hr for up to four hours and is attracting shoppers back following its refurbishment. The Aura machines communicate to the Aslan back office via GPRS to provide LDC with real time information and status.
Bird Street, a surface car park, which is one of Lichfield’s busiest shopper parking facilities, has three new Auras. They have replaced three older machines, which Metric has arranged to be moved to smaller, quieter sites within the city.
