New parking payment machine in Church Street Car Park to make it easier to pay

Story posted on

WILTSHIRE Council is installing 14 new parking payment machines at car parks across Wiltshire, which they say will make it easier for people to pay by cash or contactless card. Church Street Car Park in Melksham is one of the locations. 

The new payment machines are part of the council’s machine replacement programme, and will offer customers more choice when paying for parking. The new machines will help to meet the changing needs of customers by offering the option to also pay by contactless card, including mobile wallets such as Apple Pay and Google Pay. 

Cllr Dr Mark McClelland, Cabinet Member for Transport, said, “This is our first large instalment of these contactless payment machines in Wiltshire, which we are moving forward with following a successful trial of three machines in two car parks in Salisbury over the last three years. 

“We look forward to seeing the new machines up and running and hope these new contactless payment machines will help make the process of paying for parking much easier for customers.” 

The 14 locations that will have the new contactless payment machines installed are; Church Street in Melksham; Bath Road in Chippenham; Emery Gate in Chippenham; Borough Parade in Chippenham; Boroughfields in Royal Wootton Bassett; Sainsbury’s in Devizes; Station Road in Devizes; West Central in Devizes; Cross Hayes in Malmesbury; George Lane in Marlborough; The Station in Bradford on Avon; and Court Street in Trowbridge.
