The scheme will be trialed for a period of three months from 6:30am to 7pm each day. During the times that the trial is running, commuters won’t not have to pay parking fees.
Following the trial, construction on the project will continue for the next year in order to operate 24 hours a day, whilst the management board will collect the necessary parking fees.
In addition, the Danang municipal People’s Committee have assigned the city’s Department of Transport to come up with plans to restrict vehicles from parking in a 250 metre radius of the construction site in order to help ease traffic congestion. Moreover, it is hoped that the plans will encourage local residents to use smart parking.
Danang’s Department of Finance and Department of Industry and Trade must submit the fees for each parking spot to the city’s municipal People’s Committee before December 20.
The first use of smart parking in Danang City will span a total area of 1,000 square metres with two six-storey car parks which will each have a capacity of 50 four-seat and seven-seat cars.
