| Q-Park Charles Street in Sheffield has been named the most unusual car park in the UK in a study completed by hiyacar and YourParkingSpace.
We are undertaking a significant project in which we are investing £500,000 in a state-of-the-art CCTV system across our estate. This investment aims to improve the existing operational cameras with the latest technology, in addition to increasing coverage across both pedestrian and vehicle areas.
The Q-Park brand is synonymous with safe and secure parking facilities and we currently have industry-leading security features. The majority of our facilities include vehicle entrance automated shutters and ticket only pedestrian doors to ensure only customers have access. These security features are combined with regular patrols by parking hosts and supported by a CCTV monitoring system.
Q-Park pride ourselves on using the latest technology available and this project involves 1,100 cameras being installed across 47 different locations. The new cameras provide HD quality footage which gives us better image clarity with real-time recording and playback facility which is available to view by our 24/7 Customer Service Team.
The main focus of the CCTV systems is to monitor activity in the pedestrian stairwells and parking areas with additional cameras being fitted to cover any previously known blind spots. Our operational staff work tirelessly to identify new areas where the provision of cameras will lead to an improvement in service to our valued customers.
Adam Bidder, Managing Director of Q-Park, commented ‘We are delighted to be able to further improve the safety and security measures that we have to keep our customers safe. We are proud to lead the industry in using video surveillance systems within our quality car parks.’
The installation program commenced in March 2019 and will be completed by the end of 2019.
