Three Year Extension for Egis Digital Parking in Milton Keynes

- Milton Keynes, United Kingdom
Milton Keynes, UK

Egis, a leading global architectural, consulting, construction engineering and mobility services firm, proudly announces the extension of its digital parking contract with Milton Keynes City Council for three years.

In 2018, Milton Keynes City Council appointed Egis to deliver a UK first digital parking enforcement operation across 21,000 parking spaces in the city. The results have led to a positive shift in driver behaviour that has delivered a 13.3% increase in compliant revenue compared to pre-pandemic levels.

The adoption of Egis’ digital solution has helped the council significantly improve the efficiency of enforcement officers, with every CEO seeing an increase in Hourly Parking Charge Notice (PCN) issuance Rate. This resulted in a 53.6% increase in total PCNs issued by the existing workforce.

Under the extension Egis will continue to deliver the same suite of digital technologies developed to optimise parking management across the city. These solutions include Egis' unique 'Dispatch' software and cutting-edge ANPR scan car, which achieves swift and accurate detection of parking contraventions by digitally scanning around 750,000 vehicles per month within its scheduled patrol area.

The solution has been pioneered by Egis in 21 cities across Europe, where it manages over 250,000 parking spaces. Milton Keynes City Council’s focus on a digital first approach has seen it become the first place in the UK to benefit from the experiences of cities like Paris and Amsterdam to achieve greater compliance with parking regulations.

Upon announcing the extension Paul Harrison, Network and Enforcement Manager at Milton Keynes City Council, commented: "Egis has been instrumental in driving innovation and efficiency in our parking services since the start of our partnership. We continue to see drivers across the city become more compliant with parking regulations, which is due to the increased efficiency of our enforcement officers and the visual deterrent of the scan cars. The extension of our contract reflects our confidence in Egis' expertise and their ability to deliver transformative solutions that align with our smart city objectives. Together, we are committed to creating a more seamless and sustainable urban mobility landscape for the benefit of all."

Nigel Coltman, Project Director for Mobility Services at Egis, said: "We are proud to continue our collaboration with Milton Keynes City Council in advancing digital parking solutions that not only improve operational efficiency but also contribute to a more sustainable and less congested urban environment. The success of this solution in Milton Keynes serves as evidence of its potential impact in other urban environments. By leveraging data-centric solutions and intelligence-led enforcement strategies, we aim to empower places to resolve parking challenges while promoting sustainable urban mobility."
