Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu‘s led government of Lagos State has introduced a new technology that will enhance coordinated parking operations in the state.
The General Manager of Lagos State Parking Authority (LASPA), Adebisi Adelabu, confirmed this on Tuesday, noting that the technology will facilitate a seamless parking experience across the metropolis.
According to him, LASPA partnered with ARCA Payment Ltd. to develop the parking payment application to improve the overall parking system by ensuring a seamless transaction process for permits, registration, and inquiry, among others.
Adelabu explained that the initiative is committed to integrating technological solutions into the authority’s parking management system, which will provide a user-friendly system while building an accurate database to manage parking proceedings for the state.
She noted that the authority had adopted innovative ways of providing lasting solutions to parking challenges for a safe and secure environment, adding that the ultimate aim was to give Lagosians the most suitable parking experience.
Adelabu explained that the initiative guarantees a stress-free process for end-users of the authority’s services, emphasising the effect on reconciliation and revenue assurance for the government.
The general manager emphasised that the authority had been committed to supporting various organisations and business entities to identify and proffer long-term solutions to their parking challenges as it had observed that most organisations operating in the state lack adequate parking space, which contributed to indiscriminate parking.
While describing the various interventions introduced to reduce indiscriminate parking across the state, Adelabu stated that the government had commenced the installation of signage and lane markings in phases across the state to guide motorists and pedestrians on available parking lots.
She urged the public to support the LASPA’s efforts towards improving the parking system of the state, noting that enforcement of parking regulations had significantly reduced road mishaps and traffic congestion across the metropolis, OYO NEWS reports.
