NEW car park machines will make it easier for you to park up and pay, according to Wiltshire Council.

From today (October 4), the council will be installing 14 new parking payment machines – where you can make cash or contactless card payments including Apple Pay – across the county.

The new meters are part of the council’s machine replacement programme and are being installed to meet the changing needs of motorists amd customers.

Cabinet member for transport, Dr Mark McClelland 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.”
