First HDB Mechanised Parking System officially launched at Changi Village With the Mechanised Parking System, drivers can have their cars parked for them in under 15 minutes and at no extra cost. SINGAPORE: How would you like to have your car parked for you in under 15 minutes and at no extra cost? Visitors and residents of Changi Village have been enjoying the first HDB Mechanised Parking System (MPS) since December last year. The system is fully automated to allow the transfer of vehicles to available parking spaces across a five-level building. The carpark is open to residents for season parking, as well as short-term parking for visitors at the same fee HDB charges for its regular carparks. When motorists arrive at the car park, the gantry assigns them a car lift number. Motorists then drive their vehicles to the assigned lift, apply their parking brake, lock their vehicle behind them before entering a one-time PIN number outside the lift. This number will be used to retrieve their vehicle later. The carpark, which was officially launched on Friday (Feb 19), has added another 121 parking lots in Changi Village, bringing the total number of lots at Changi Village to 304 - up from the previous 183 lots. HDB said Changi Village was selected for the pilot because of the high demand for parking but it was not possible to increase the number of parking spaces due to land constraints. Since it commenced operations in December, a total of 5,400 parking transactions have been recorded. HDB says based on parking records, motorists take an average time of five minutes to park and retrieve their vehicles during off-peak periods and an average of 10 to 15 minutes during peak periods. This, HDB says, is an improvement over the previous 20 to 30 minutes motorists had to queue during peak periods to enter the surface carpark, before they can even start looking for available parking lots. The carpark at Changi Village is the largest of three MPS carparks in Singapore. The other two, located at Bangkit Road and Yishun Avenue 4, began operations in January. HDB said it will evaluate the suitability of the MPS system in Singapore before considering implementing it at other sites. - CNA/dl
