[3/9/2018] Isle of Wight (UK): new energy efficient parking meters
Forty machines will be installed by the end of the month of February, as part of the replacement programme that will see energy-efficient solar-powered meters put into locations bright enough for them to operate effectively.
These new meters will be more reliable than the models they replace some of which were nearing the end of their serviceable life and required an increasing amount of maintenance.
The replacement programme will therefore reduce instances of meters being out of use and because more are solar powered, less energy will be consumed.
Island Roads is a partnership made up of VINCI Concessions, Meridiam Infrastructure and Ringway, providing a highway maintenance service for the Isle of Wight Council from April 2013 to 2038.
