The parking spaces have been equipped with parking signs and meters, some of which have touch screens.

Almost 3,000 parking spaces in three Sharjah neighbourhoods have been converted into paid slots, the municipality  announced on Monday. 

These paid parking spaces are in the Muwailih 3 (1,755 spaces), Al Nahda (651 spaces) and Al Taawon (586 spaces) areas, the Sharjah Municipality said.

Ali Ahmed Abu Ghazin, director of the public parking department, said parking meters and signboards have also been installed to inform residents of the changes and fees. 

"Converting parking spaces into paid slots had been based on indicators that take the areas' development into account," Abu Ghazin said. 

Khalid bin Falah Al Suwaidi, assistant director-general of the Customer Service Sector, explained that payments can be done either through the parking meters or via SMS. 

Thabit Al Turaifi, Director-General of Sharjah City Municipality, said the municipality ensures that residents and visitors have access to parking areas around the clock, especially as the emirate has become an ideal destination for both families and tourists.

"The new paid parking spots were prepared according to the highest standards as part of the municipality's continued efforts to provide public parking spaces around the clock throughout the city of Sharjah, especially in the vital zones. This step help prevent the misuse of parking spaces," the authority said.
