Media release

From Friday, 28 June, Stockland Merrylands will be launching its License Plate Recognition (LPR) technology in its car park.

One of the most advanced parking systems in Australia, LPR will help facilitate a more seamless parking experience and eliminate the hassle of lost or damaged tickets.

Michelle Thomas, Stockland Merrylands Centre Manager, said: “The fundamental aim of our ticketless parking system is to make it quicker and easier for customers to park and connect with our retailers.

“The new, state-of-the-art technology will ensure the entry and exit from the car park will be quick and easy, by using licence plate recognition to track parking without the need for a ticket.”

When a customer enters or exits the car park, the LPR system will process their vehicle’s number plate at the gate and, if the customer has parked for less than three hours, it will open automatically for them. If the customer has parked for longer than three hours, they will be required to pay either at the pay station in the centre, or by credit card at the gate.

For even more convenience, customers can register for an online account from 4 June.* By creating an account and linking a credit card to a nominated vehicle in advance, the system will automatically process the payment past the first three hours, if necessary, when exiting.

RMS Mobility parking holders can park at the centre for free at any time. To register for ticketless parking, these customers will be required to present their permits to the team at the Customer Care Desk along with their vehicle’s number plate. Once registered, they will be able to access to car park seamlessly.

Parking rates will remain unchanged.
