Hi-tech boom system to curb parking woes at CT airport

Authorities at the Cape Town International Airport are working to develop an advanced boom gate system that will help improve service efficiency and crack down on corrupt parking attendants.

The airport's General Manager Deon Cloete, says that the boom gate system will recognise various transport modes and offer different tariffs depending on where one parks.

This comes after a Bosasa security official was found guilty of corrupt parking practices earlier this year at the airport.

This is the type of incident and experience that dilutes trust. The impact that it makes is quite high.

Cloete explains that the loop system differentiates between vehicles and other transport modes.

He says the system will soon boast number-plate and face recognition software to generate parking tickets linked to registration plates and a motorist's identity.

He says that this will help improve safety, while matching motorists with their vehicles and parking tickets, and also reducing tailgating and vehicle theft.
