No more scrambling for spare coins – Hastings is about to get 74 new parking meters at a total cost of $540,000.
The lollipop meters were installed in 1996/97 and are starting to fail due to their age.
The new parking meters will be pay by plate, rather than the current system where there is one parking meter per car park.
Seventy-four new machines will be installed, each servicing about 10 car parks, with 508 lollipop parking meters removed.
Users put their vehicle registration number into the parking meter.
