The move was part of the first phase of the civic body's plan to improvise parking services in the city.

A total of 4,100 parking spaces were converted into prepaid public parking zones in the third quarter of 2020, the Sharjah Municipality has said.

The move was part of the first phase of the civic body's plan to improvise parking services in the city. As part of its second phase, an additional 2,100 parking spaced will be added in the next three months.

The fees and payment options will remain the same in all-newly included areas, said Thabit Salim Al Turaifi, director-general of the Sharjah Municipality. "The areas subjected to fees include Industrial Area 3 and Industrial Area 10 as well as the parking lots overlooking Maliha Street (Industrial 15 and Industrial 17).

"The new prepaid parking spaces were added in vital areas that are witnessing growth. The areas were selected based on comprehensive surveys of areas that witnessed a lack of parking zones. It will prevent misuse and make parking spaces available for all residents," he added.

Khalid bin Falah Al Suwaidi, assistant general manager of the customer service sector, said the second phase will cover parking lots of commercial areas in Muwailih, Al Taawun and Al Nahda areas.

Meanwhile, Ali Ahmed Abu Ghazin, director of the public parking department, said the Sharjah Municipality had installed smart touch machines in 230 areas across the emirate to pay parking fees.
