Smart Transport Hub Shortlisted for British Parking Awards 2021
Smart Transport Hub announce that it has been shortlisted by the British Parking Awards for two industry awards. The awards include the Parking Partnership Award and the Parking Futures Award.
“At Smart Transport Hub, we are honoured to help our clients achieve the results they seek. And to have the work we do be recognised for two awards in our industry is a real achievement,” says Christian Constantinides, Managing Director of Smart Transport Hub
The two award nominations are in recognition of a partnership between Smart Transport Hub and the London Borough of Hammersmith and Fulham (H&F) Council for their successful work on the Traffic, Congestion and Pollution Reduction (TCPR) scheme, which started in July 2020.
Traffic, Congestion and Pollution Reduction (TCPR) Scheme
Smart Transport Hub worked closely with NSL Videalert, Vortex and H&F Council to monitor traffic, congestion and pollution levels within the South Fulham area to ensure the scheme was providing the results they set out to achieve.
“We are providing continuous monitoring of the traffic environment and air quality data through our Smart Lenz sensor and portal solution,” says Nicola Mastini, Senior Consultant at Smart Transport Hub.
H&F Council has shared positive results from the new scheme:
‘The TCPR, which was developed by the council working with residents, uses the latest Automatic Number Plate Recognition technology to end this problem. It allows H&F residents whose vehicles are registered to an H&F address, as well as visitors and tradespeople with day permits, to access all areas freely.
‘Since the trial scheme began, traffic has reduced by 75% in the streets to the east of Wandsworth Bridge Road (WBR) and by 12% on Wandsworth Bridge Road.
‘The TCPR has enabled residents to take control of local streets which had become flooded with traffic – 90% of which was made up of rat-running, out-of-borough motorists…’ (Hammersmith & Fulham Council, 2021)

The Smart Transport Hub team will be attending the awards ceremony next week and hope to be successful in the following categories:
Award 1: Parking Partnerships Award
The Parking Partnerships Award recognises the importance of partnership working in the parking sector. The partnership may involve pairings or groups of local authorities, companies, professional bodies, campaign groups and other stakeholders. There will be a particular interest in responses to the ongoing pandemic.
Award 2: Parking Futures Award
We are on the road to somewhere, and when we get there we will park… The new Parking Futures Award will recognise people and organisations that are positively shaping the way in which we travel, drive and park. The category will encompass a wide range of activities and projects from the UK and internationally, including concept cars; ground-breaking technology; building projects; research projects; publications and reports; art and drama.

The winners will be announced at the British Parking Awards ceremony on the 24th September 2021 at the Royal Lancaster London. The awards, which have been running for 20 years focus on recognising the leading examples of car park management, enforcement, design and teamwork in the UK.
“We want to wish the best of luck to everyone that has been shortlisted for an award. Myself and the team are excited to be attending the awards this year and we look forward to learning about the exciting projects that have been happening in the parking industry across the UK,” said Mr Constantinides.
