Daily Mirror (Sri Lanka) - - NEWS - BY CHATURANGA PRADEEP

The Colombo Mu­nic­i­pal Coun­cil (CMC) yes­ter­day launched a Smart Park Mo­bile App to en­hance the ser­vices of­fered to mo­torists in the city.

CMC Com­mis­sioner V. K. A. Anura said the Smart Park Mo­bile App is an en­hance­ment to ser­vices pro­vided by Te­naka Park­ings in im­prov­ing cus­tomer sat­is­fac­tion by pro­vid­ing an ef­fi­cient park­ing man­age­ment ser­vice in a pro­fes­sional and or­derly man­ner to en­sure a safe, secure and friendly en­vi­ron­ment.

The pro­ject in­cludes in­stal­la­tion of park­ing me­ters along the length of the Galle Road, R. A. de Mel Mawatha and all by-roads con­nect­ing th­ese roads with the park­ing man­age­ment op­er­a­tor be­ing Te­naga Car Parks (Pvt.) Ltd. “We have now com­pleted the in­stal­la­tion of park­ing me­ters on the first phase and they are now op­er­a­tional. This will ben­e­fit the pub­lic and busi­ness com­mu­nity as the avail­abil­ity of va­cant park­ing slots will in­crease with this new sys­tem,” he said.

The new tech­nol­ogy im­ple­mented would en­able mo­tor ve­hi­cle user to pay us­ing a touch card in­tro­duced by Di­a­log Ax­i­ata Sri Lanka or by cash, for their con­ve­nience. Fur­ther pay­ment op­tion will be ex­tended through a mo­bile ap­pli­ca­tion as well in the near fu­ture.

We en­cour­age the pub­lic to use the touch card sys­tem as a pay­ment op­tion for the park­ing me­ters as the ma­chine will not re­fund or give back change if the cash deposit is se­lected as the pay­ment op­tion. There­fore the pub­lic is ad­vised to deposit the ex­act value in notes when the set­tle­ment is made us­ing cash.

The Di­a­log Touch Cards are read­ily avail­able at Di­a­log merchant out­lets in this zone as well as through with em­ploy­ees of Te­naga Car Parks (Pvt) Ltd who have been posted next to th­ese park­ing me­ters at the ini­tial stage for the con­ve­nience of mo­torists.
