Waterloo gets chip-and-pin parking meters

Motorists can now pay for parking in Waterloo using credit cards following the introduction of new chip and pin pay and display machines in The Cut.

The machines mean that motorists no longer have to carry around change if they want to park in Lambeth. Because the new meters are solar powered, they are also environmentally friendly.

The machines in The Cut are part of a six-month trial by Lambeth Council at three locations in the borough. The other test sites are in Clapham and Stockwell.

"We want to make sure that all our services are as accessible as possible to the people who use them, and parking is no exception," says Cllr Mark Bennett, Lambeth's cabinet member for community safety, who attended the launch of the meters in The Cut on Monday.

"These new machines are all part of the council's aim to offer a fair and easy-to-use service at the same time as making sure traffic keeps flowing freely on the borough's streets."
