Auto parking to commence services

The automated parking system (APS) installed in a short-term tenancy (STT) car park in Tsuen Wan will commence services tomorrow, the Transport Department said today.   Located at the junction of Hoi Shing Road and Hoi Kok Street, this is the first automated parking system taken forward by the Government to further increase the number of parking spaces and spatial efficiency.   The tenant has adopted six modules of a puzzle stacking system to provide 78 automated parking spaces out of a total of 245 parking spaces at the site.   Introducing the system at a media visit today, Transport Department Principal Project Coordinator (Parking) Keith Tang said the system can double the parking capacity.   “For the same footprint, this puzzle type parking system can double the parking capacity.   “The advantage of this puzzle type parking system is that it is easy to install and be demolished.  It is especially suitable for installation in open space as a short-term installation, particularly at a short-term tenancy site.”   The tenancy with a fixed term of five years and thereafter monthly was awarded last December.   In addition, a short-term tenancy site at Pak Shek Kok in Tai Po is also designated for APS. Its tender assessment is in progress. The system is expected to commence services by the end of next year.   The department said the Government will examine the feasibility of adopting an APS when inviting tenders for new STT car parks or carrying out re-tendering for the existing STT car parks.   By drawing on the experiences from the APS projects at Hoi Shing Road and at Pak Shek Kok, the Government will have a better grasp of the factors affecting the feasibility of introducing an APS at different STT car parks.   The Government will continue to take APS projects forward so as to consolidate its experience and pave the way for wider APS use in public car parks in future, it added.
