COUNCIL is cracking down on cars over-staying their welcome in the CBD.

More than 240 in-ground parking sensors are being installed along Peel St, between Bourke and White Sts, and near the town hall, so Tamworth Regional Council rangers can get better turnover in CBD parking spaces.

While there’s no changes to restrictions or fines, it’s hoped the move will improve accessibility with evidence suggesting parked cars are exceeding restrictions along the main street.

“It’s an enforcement method to improve the turnover of the car parking spaces,” acting manager of road infrastructure Jeremy Bartlett said.

“Armidale has got very similar sensors to these in their CBD.”

The work is expected to be completed by the end of next week.
