From March 1, parking in the car park at Skofabrikken will be charged.
Halton Municipality reported this on its website on Monday afternoon.
Tests from Wednesday
There are different types of parking spaces in the car park. Some are reserved for smart city cars, while others are regular toll booths.
But Halton Municipality does not charge for it.
– Not everyone realizes that there is a parking fee in the car park. Until now, we have not enforced parking fee violations there, but there will be a change from March 1. From this date, parking wardens will issue restricted permits to those who do not have a valid parking permit, Leif Halvorsen of the Parking Department said in a press release.
NOK 25 hours
The parking spaces in question are registered as Zone 3. You must pay for the time you are parked. In zone 3 the fee is NOK 25 per hour or NOK 75 for a whole day.
The machines located in the car park are marked with machine number 50. You will see them at the entrance as you enter the car park.
Tolls are payable on weekdays from 08:00 to 17:00 and on Saturdays from 08:00 to 15:00. Sundays are free.
Here you can park in the city center for free
A fine of NOK 11 million
In Halden, motorists paid NOK 11 million in parking fees and charges for wrong parking to the municipality in 2022.
We’re talking about nearly 3,000 motorists who had a yellow sticker affixed to their windshield last year.
1,895 motorists did not pay the toll and the rest received fines for wrong parking. Many of them have parked in places with “No Parking” signs.
Additionally, parking in loading zones and HC spaces is a regular occurrence in Halton.
– We will make great efforts to create car-free zones in the new district
