Santariškės medical city – Vilnius, Lithuania
Vilnius University Hospital Santaros Klinikos is one of the major hospitals in Lithuania encompassing the provision of medical care in almost all key areas.
The lack of parking spaces in Santariškės Medical City, where the Vilnius University Hospital Santaros Klinikos is located, is a well-known problem. It is estimated that per day up to 400 drivers leave their cars in unauthorized places, regardless of traffic rules. This behavior complicates the driving conditions for official medical transport and creates traffic jams and emergency situations. Therefore, it was decided to renew and install more parking spaces.
Hansab UAB, our partner in the Baltic States, found a technical solution on how to solve the car parking problem and how to redirect drivers to vacant sites. At the entrance of Santariškės and Geležinis Vilkas, space counting signs were installed, which indicate the number of available parking lots. This solution will direct visitors to exact sites, thus avoiding hustle on already full parking lots.
Ground and multistory parking lots are equipped with Amano’s car parking system Xparc with barrier gates, ANPR (automatic number plate recognition) technology and colorful information screens. Equipping these parking lots with a complete ticketless system. Visitors can pay by cash or contactless cards at the automatic pay station. Also 24/7 video surveillance throughout the territory is provided. Parking spaces for disabled people can be found on each site. These spaces are free of charge at the sites with a barrier gate. The automatic pay stations are DDA compliant to the needs of the disabled.
The Santariškės Medical city parking lot project is the first large-scale project in the Baltic States. The development started in 2018. Since then 6 ground and 1 multistory parking lots were built. In the nearest future, 2 multistory and 2 parking lots for employees are planned.
