Parking Insider - Latest parking news, case studies & events

Farewell Message from Lorraine Duffy
This is about the 55th CEO message for Parking Insider and will be my last one. As you would have read in our previous edition after nearly 5 years as inaugural Chief Executive I will be handing over the baton as they say, to a new CEO.
This is an exciting time for any organisation involved in vehicles and mobility and the parking industry has all its best days ahead as we embrace change, disruption and technology.
I was fortunate enough in 2013 to take over the reigns of PA from a committee of passionate, dedicated and hard working members under the leadership of Larry Schneider. Cristina Lynn as President then guided the Board of Directors in the delivery of our five pillars of excellence in parking.
During my tenure we have celebrated many triumphs that could not have been possible without the support of the Parking Australia membership and the passionate commitment of Steph Busby in Marketing and Trish Paul in Operations. I have been honoured since 2013 to have served alongside dedicated, visionary Directors, and the current Board under the leadership of Sharon Prior is focused on ensuring that the industry achieves great things in the future and that membership interests are at the core of future opportunities.

In closing I would like to thank our Parking Australia members as I leave a strong, healthy organization, that will continue to grow and advocate parking, as a conduit which positively affects the human mobility experience.

Parking Australia's Learning Lab heads to Perth

Parking Australia's first Learning Lab event saw a delegation of  45 members visit City of Joondalup Council and Curtin University as part of a guided site-visit. The event clearly demonstrated that, as one delegate commented, "there is no limit to the technology available for the management of traffic & parking". A panel of 5 experts presented on the development of the award winning Reid Promenade Car Park before heading off to view various initiatives including access control, security and EV infrastucture. At Curtin the ACTIBUMP anti speed activation system and Autonomous Bus were highlights finishing with networking drinks. See photos
