From Tuesday 2 June, payment for parking in Havnens P-Hus (The Harbour’s multistorey carpark) in Sønderborg will be regulated by barriers and Automatic Number Plate Recognition (ANPR).
The new system makes it significantly easier to pay for parking, and it is no longer necessary to place the parking disc in the car. ANPR keeps track of entry and exit. If you park for less than two hours, which is free, you should not need to use the app or machine for registration.
Instead, all cars are registered when they pass the barriers and ANPR takes a picture of the car's number plate. Having read the number plate, the barrier goes up.
Restrictions on certain spaces have been lifted so that parking has been made more flexible. You can park the car wherever you want – except for disabled parking spaces and electric charging places, which are reserved for eligible motorists.
If you need to park for more than two hours, the price per hour is still 12 DKK. With the new payment system, you pay for your parking just before leaving the car park. This can be done in one of the three vending machines in the car park, via the APCOA FLOW app or via the EasyParks app.
When you have finished and paid for your parking, you drive towards the exit barrier. Here the car's number plate is read again, and if you have paid, the barrier goes up.
APCOA PARKING has been responsible for the administration of Havnens P-Hus from January 22 this year, as a result of the agreement between APCOA PARKING and the owner of the car park, BMC Ejendomme A/S, which is a company owned by Bitten & Mads Clausen’s Foundation.
