Date: Monday 15 August 2011 Time: 9am Venue: Entrance to Fareham Shopping Centre car park on Civic Way (formerly known as the Civic Way Multi-Storey car park)
The new Fareham Shopping Centre multi-storey car park will be officially opened by The Executive Leader of Fareham Borough Council, Councillor Se�n Woodward and the Mayor of Fareham, Councillor Trevor Cartwright on Monday 15 August. Following the official opening at 9am, the car park will be open to the public from 9.30am onwards.
The four storey, 209 space car park including 12 disabled bays, boasts a chip and pin payment machine for shoppers paying by credit or debit card, providing a faster, safer and more efficient system of payment. Shoppers are still able to make payments using the traditional cash method.
Executive Leader of Fareham Borough Council, Councillor Se�n Woodward: "I am delighted that the new multi-storey car park will open on Monday, giving shoppers direct access to the eastern end of the shopping centre and providing more short stay spaces and spiral ramps to allow vehicles to enter and exit the car park with ease."
Fareham Shopping Centre, Centre Director, Pam Marsden, said: "Fareham Shopping Centre is pleased this parking facility is ready to open, allowing shoppers to go straight from their cars into the shopping centre, all of which is undercover."
The new car park also includes a number plate recognition system and CCTV to improve security, as well as new lifts.
Chip and pin payment machines will also be installed in the Market Quay car park and the Osborn Road multi storey car park by the end of September as part of an upgrade scheme for all pay on foot machines.
