Eight contactless payment machines have been installed in some Erewash Borough Council car parks this week to make life easier for drivers.

In Ilkeston town centre, contactless payment is now available at two of the three pay machines in the Albion Centre car park; both machines at Pimlico; and the pay machines at Queen Street and South Street car parks.

Rail commuters have also had a boost at Long Eaton Train Station, where they can pay contactless at both machines.

The council is also in the process of providing electric vehicle charging point in some car parks and will confirm the details shortly.
