Project description Outdoor Parking Guidance in Ħal Qormi, Malta
Ħal Qormi, 17,000 inhabitants, neighbour city from La Valeta, the Malta capital, suffered from its geographical situation, landlocked into the principal urbanized area of the island. The typical one-way small streets of the city centre offer few parking spots for the shoppers and drivers tended to turn around to park there. This is why the municipality decided to invest in a Urban Parking Guidance System to indicate from the outer part of the historical centre if and where are the free parking spots available. The System (1st phase) consists in:
- 125 on-street parking sensors U-Spot
- 4 Variable Message Signs fabricated locally using the U-Display modules
- The Parking U-Admin Control Center for the daily management of the system
The system drastically reduce the time looking for parking and alleviates congestion of the area, giving it back to the pedestrians who will benefit from a better quality of life.
The system has been rolled out and is operated by Infracore, Urbiotica certified partner for Malta.
