Addiscombe parking machines to be decommissioned
23/06/2015 12:07:00

Croydon Council has launched a pilot scheme which they hope will reduce the number of thefts of cash from pay-and-display parking machines.

The pilot scheme covers 15 roads: Leslie Park Road, Lebanon Road, Addiscombe Court Road, Tunstall Road, Park Hill Rise, Park Hill Road, Oval Road, Cedar Road, Chisholm Road, Bisenden Road, Brickwood Road, Blake Road, Colson Road, Leslie Grove, Alpha Road.

On these roads all but one machine will be covered. Covered machines will have instructions encouraging residents to either use cashless parking or go to the nearest pay-and-display machine indicated by a map.

The aim of the pilot is to reduce the number of pay-and-display machines on the borough’s streets and, in so doing, reduce the incidence of damage and thefts, which are inconvenient to motorists and costly for the council.

After initial registration, you should be able to quickly and simply use your phone. You can register here www.myRingGo.co.uk/register or by using the smartphone app.

Commenting on my blog

I welcome readers' comments on my blog. Unfortunately, sometimes people go too far and use blog sites to post comments which are abusive or defamatory to third parties. For this reason, your comments, posted using the form on this page, don't appear until they have been moderated, to make sure that they don't cross that line.

My policy is that I will always let comments appear from people who disagree with me, in a spirit of promoting reasoned debate. However, I will not allow comments to be posted which are defamatory to someone else, or which are racist, sexist, homophobic or otherwise likely to fail a 'public decency' test.

Consequently, there may be some hours delay after you post your comment until it appears on the public pages.
