Work installing new car park ticket machines that accept the new £1 coin has now been completed, according to Powys County Council.

Newtown's Back Lane car park was the first in the county to have the machines installed in July and now they have been installed at the Gravel car park as well as every other county council pay and display car park in the county.

The 55 new pay and display machines replace out-dated machines, that were in a poor condition, the council said.

All new machines accept the new £1 coins and the old £1 coins, which go out of circulation in October.

Cllr Liam Fitzpatrick, Cabinet Member for Highways, said: “Work to install the new ticket machines in our pay and display car parks has gone very smoothly and I thank staff for their efforts.

“The new machines will accept the old £1 coin until they lose their legal tender status in October.

“The machines will update so that they don’t accept the old £1 coins after October 15. There is some signage work to be completed which will be done shortly but I am delighted that the new machines are up and running.”
